Alexa is now available on the iPhone Amazon app!

Amazon has added Alexa to their iPhone Amazon app.  I say this is a pretty bold move considering the iPhone already has Siri don’t you think?  It seems to be able to do everything you can do with the Alexa set of devices except that now it’s on your iPhone.

In order to use it you press the microphone icon at the top-right corner of the app and say something like “reorder paper towels” or “track my last order” and it will do just that.  You can also ask non-Amazon questions like “What’s the weather like today?” or “Tell me a joke.”  You can even play your favorite music or read a book from kindle.  The only thing I’m aware of that it can’t do is compared to the Amazon Echo, Tap, and Echo Dot is take a command by saying “Alexa”.

Check it out and let me know what you think.
