Use your supported Echo device and the Alexa app to send SMS messages through your mobile phone.
Note: Sending SMS messages with Alexa is only available on Android phones (5.0 or higher).
To enable SMS messaging in the Alexa app:
You can send SMS messages to anyone in your contact list, including international contacts. Just say, "Text (contact name)," or "Text (cell number)." The SMS contains a text transcript and a link to your voice message. This feature uses your existing mobile phone service, so carrier charges may apply.
Note: Sending group messages, picture and video messages, and contacting emergency services aren't supported.
