See and do more with Alexa
Alexa connects you to the information, entertainment and people who matter most—with just your voice. Ask to play videos and music, open apps, check the weather, call or message almost anyone (UK residential and mobile numbers from UK only) and much more.
Just say “Alexa”, even when the tablet screen is in sleep mode. Alexa and Fire HD 8 are designed to protect your privacy. For example, you can view and delete your voice recordings or use the Alexa Hands-Free mode on/off toggle at any time.
