Since the introduction of cell phones into our daily lives, a lot has changed. Voice-activated assistants have made it possible for us to perform nearly all of our daily tasks using only our voices. The Alexa “Hands-free” capability is now included in smartphones from brands like OnePlus and Redmi.
The hands-free capability, as its name says, allows users to activate Alexa on their cellphones directly through their voice, as the name suggests. Hands-free Alexa on your smartphone can do it all with just a single voice command, including navigation while driving, smart home device control, music control while working out, reminders, alarms, and timers, as well as composing lists on the go and simple phone calls.
You can follow these steps to set up Alexa on your Android phone so you can use it hands-free.
Update your Android smartphone’s OS.
To begin the process of setting up Alexa hands-free on your Android smartphone, make sure your phone is running the most recent software version.
Click on Settings > System > System updates and then click on Install to verify this.
It’s time to reboot your phone.
Amazon Alexa’s App can be downloaded here.
Follow these simple steps to download the Amazon Alexa app from the Google Play Store once your operating system has been upgraded and is ready to be used:
Tap “Download” in the Google Play Store’s top search bar to get started.
To upgrade the Alexa app if you already have it, tap “Update”.
In this step, Alexa’s hands-free setup is completed.
Create an Amazon ID and follow the on-screen steps to get hands-free access to the Alexa app.
Instead, visit the Alexa app’s settings page. Using the Alexa app, go to ‘Settings’ and select ‘Alexa on this phone. Then, select ‘Alexa Hands-Free’ and proceed as instructed.
Alexa may be used on your smartphone without the need for a physical connection.
Once you’ve completed the hands-free setup of Alexa on your smartphone, you can just say “Alexa, open YouTube” or “Alexa, open Instagram” and let Alexa take care of the rest.
For example, you can use Alexa to make calls, search for directions while you’re driving, listen to music, and even look up recipes. As simple as saying “Alexa, call Rohan,” you may also ask for directions to your house, play the newest music at the club, reorder a Starbucks coffee, obtain the latest party songs or ask Alexa for a recipe for banana bread.
Additionally, you may use more than 30,000 Alexa skills, such as Audible Suno and Audible, which allow you to listen to stories narrated by popular musicians and listen to audiobooks.
