Amazon Fire 7 And HD 8 Tablets Updated To Function As Hands-Free Alexa Speakers
In a new firmware update, Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 users will be able to trigger Alexa hands-free with their voice, rather than having to press and hold the tablets' home screen button to launch the voice assistant. Say "Alexa, tell everyone dinner's ready", and everyone in your home within earshot of an Echo device will hear you say "dinner's ready".
Telling an Echo "announce", "broadcast" or "tell everyone" something will make all connected devices on the account relay the message. It's true Alexa doesn't work the same way it does on the Echo series but the company is making big changes. You can also say "Alexa, broadcast", and again, tack on your voice message at the end. Unlike Groups, which just controls multiple bulbs, plugs and other devices in one go, Routines offers much finer control.
The Alexa Announcements feature is rolling out to Alexa users in the United States and Canada starting 5 April.
The feature essentially turns the tablet into a poor man's Echo Show, the $230 Echo device with a screen.

Just as with Amazon's other multi-Echo features, like Drop In, multi-room music, and calling & messaging, the goal is to encourage greater adoption of the smart speakers in a broader number of rooms. This feature was reportedly already available on Amazon's Fire HD tablet.
