The pandemic has changed our world sharply, including the way we communicate with each other. People now prefer group calls instead of face-to-face meetings, a great way to stay connected not just in pandemic times.
Calling via Amazon Echo is especially convenient because you don’t have to hold your phone or sit in frony of your PC all the time. That’s why Amazon added this feature on top of the one-on-one calling feature that’s been available since 2017. You can call other Amazon Echo users, as well as mobile and landline numbers.
Also, Amazon has added a group video calling feature to the Amazon Echo Show.
With Amazon Echo, you can call up to seven people simultaneously during an audio or video call. Calls are available in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Mexico, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Ireland, and India.
How do you group call on Echo?
To make a group call, you need to place the contacts you want to call in a call group in the Alexa App.
To do this, you need to open the app and select “Communicate. Then click on the person icon in the top right corner and select “Add Group” and select the contacts you want to call. Then select a name to assign to the group.
Once you’ve created your call group and assigned it a name, all you have to do is say “Alexa call my group name” and the call will begin.
