The feature is now rolling out within the Amazon Alexa app on iOS and Android.
As reported by Engadget, Amazon is bringing Alexa calling (including video calls) and messaging to tablets. If you have a Fire 7, Fire HD 8 or older Fire tablet, you'll have to first press the home button to initiate a call or send a message. Amazon has also revealed that users will now be able to use Alexa to make video/voice calls and send messages from tablets. One fix will involve disabling the phrase: "Alexa, laugh", and they have also changed the command to "Alexa, can you laugh?" It reduces the stress of asking the assistant to perform multiple actions. If you don't give out the next command within five seconds, then Alexa will simply go back to sleep, and you will need to say "Hey, Alexa" to wake her up.
Follow-Up-Mode feature is opt-in, and you will have to turn it on from the Echo settings. This new feature will be available on all tablets, including iOS and Android.
