  • T-Mobile has made it possible for its customers to make and receive calls through Alexa.
  • The feature arrives as a new T-Mobile Alexa Skill that links your number to your Alexa account.
  • Hands-free calling on Alexa will be free for T-Mobile customers.

Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa, has the ability to make and receive calls. However, this feature wasn’t available to people who subscribe to T-Mobile. But that’s changing as Amazon is now teaming up with the US carrier.

In a blog post, Amazon announced that it’s partnering with T-Mobile to enable hands-free calling. The feature arrives as a new T-Mobile Alexa Skill that customers can use to link their mobile number to Alexa. Once a phone number is linked to an Alexa account, hands-free calling will be possible on all Alexa-enabled devices connected to the account.
