Amazon is updating its Alexa app to add support for messaging and calling in the UK, Germany, and Austria today. The retail giant revealed last week that the company would be expanding its Alexa communications service to the UK and Germany, and it’s now rolling out this morning.

Alexa’s voice calling feature will work on standard Echo or Echo Dot devices, and it allows Alexa-powered devices to call each other. You can also call Alexa devices using the Alexa app for iOS and Android, and video calling will be supported on the £199.99 / €219.99 Echo Show that will be available next month in the UK and Germany.
