Enable Hands-Free on Amazon Tap

You can use the wake word "Alexa" with Amazon Tap.

To enable hands-free mode on your Amazon Tap, in the Alexa app:

  1. Open the left navigation panel, and then select Settings.
  2. Under Alexa Devices, select your Amazon Tap device.
  3. Select Hands-free Mode to toggle the hands free feature.

You can use the same steps to disable hands-free mode. When you turn hands-free on or off, the device plays a tone to confirm the change. The only wake word available for hands-free on Amazon Tap is "Alexa."

While in hands-free mode, you can disable the microphone by pressing the play/pause button for three seconds. The device doesn't respond to the wake word until you enable the microphone again using the same process.

When you've enabled hands-free mode, a fully charged battery provides up to 8 hours of continuous playback when off the Charging Cradle. During this time, Amazon Tap doesn't enter sleep mode automatically. To learn more about battery life options, see Charge Your Amazon Tap.
