Using Alexa On Your iPhone

You can access Amazon's Alexa assistant on your iPhone, but you don't do it through the Alexa app. Instead, you use the Amazon shopping app. You can access the same information and services that you do on an Echo device.

    This doesn’t seem to work in the UK?

    Peter: Do you not see the Alexa button in the Amazon app? Or is the button there and it doesn't work?

    This is a brilliant way to get more value from my 2 Echo devices! But it appears that I still need the “Amazon Alexa” app to view my shopping list at the store. Is that correct?

    Dwream: Not sure. Unless there is also a way to view it in the main Amazon app.

    Thanks for the Alexa tip. However, the icon does not appear on that app on my ipadpro. Please advise.

    Cyndi: No, I don't think it is available on the iPad, just the iPhone.

    I live in Italy and I don't see the Alexa button either. I am guessing that either you have to also have the Alexa app or it only works in the USA.

    Thanks Gary, I have 2 Echo Dots and had been wondering how I accessed Alexa when I’m not on my home WiFi. Always informative. Thanks.

    Thanks, but I didn't like having the Amazon store app on my phone for security reasons. We can download Amazon Music app which also has Alexa. Can't wait to try it out on the road.

    Unless you absolutely need to physically have an Echo or Dot etc, it does not work in Canada either. I even downloaded the Amazon Alexa app but no go. Oh well...

    I don't think this works in Canada. The Alexa icon does not show up on the Amazon home page.....only the shopping cart and the search icon.
