Alexa is one step closer to replacing Siri as voice control comes to iOS app
Over a year after landing on the App Store, the Alexa app on iOS finally supports voice commands starting today. The feature arrived on Android devices at the beginning of the year, but Apple users had to wait an additional half a year to be able to use the Amazon Alexa app to ask Alexa questions and control their Echo devices.
When you open the Amazon Alexa app on your iPhone or iPad now, you can tap the Alexa button in the middle of the command bar at the bottom of the screen and begin speaking to Alexa. Virtually anything you can do with an Amazon Echo, you can do on the app, from asking Alexa to play music to having questions answered to checking the weather to controlling smart devices in your home. All with the tap of a button from the official Alexa app.
