About this app

Phone Link connects your Alexa device, such as an Amazon Echo speaker, to your phone or tablet, giving you the ability to read out and send text messages, make phone calls, locate a lost device, and stream music and audio files. Use this app in combination with the Phone Link Alexa skill.

Here's what's included:


If your device is close by, you can make it ring - even if it's in silent mode or has the do not disturb setting turned on. If the device is further away, you can get its approximate address. Just say something like "Ask Phone Link to ring my phone" or "Ask Phone Link to find my tablet".


You can ask Alexa to start a phone call on your phone. It will even turn on your phone's speakerphone if you don't have a Bluetooth connection. Just say something like "Ask phone link to call John Smith".


Phone link can read out and send text messages from many popular apps, including Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, your phone's SMS app, and many others. It is also able to read and reply to messages received in Gmail. It works by monitoring your notifications for incoming messages. This is the same system used by Wear OS and Android Auto. Just say something like "Ask Phone Link to send a text to Jane Doe." or "Ask Phone Link to read my messages."

If supported by your Alexa device, you can optionally have Alexa notify you when you have unread messages. When you see the notification light, just say "Alexa, what did I miss?"


Stream music and audio files stored on your Android device to your Alexa device or app, giving Alexa access to your entire mp3 collection. You can direct Alexa to play by playlist, title, album, artist, or genre. The Phone Link app can be used to set up your playlists.

To start playback, just say something like "Ask Phone Link to play my workout playlist" or "Ask Phone Link to play some rock music".


Phone Link works with the Echo Auto and in-car systems, providing a safe way to send and receive text messages hands-free.


You can use phone link with multiple devices in your household. Just include the device's name in your voice command (e.g, "Ask Phone Link to find John's Phone"). Parents can use it to monitor the location of their children as well as the text messages they are receiving.


Phone link works with Amazon Echo devices, the Echo Auto, Fire TV, and third party devices and apps such as Ultimate Alexa.


Install this app and follow the on-screen instructions. You can enable the Alexa skill and link it to your Amazon account within the app.


Your privacy is very important. Text messages and contact information are stored on your phone and nowhere else. Even when you ask Alexa to read or send a message, the message is routed between your phone and Alexa device without any storage occurring on our servers.

Horrible.. it wants permission to read all text messages. All, or it won't run. And it wants to run constantly in the background, using your entire battery. I won't give any of those permissions. Guess I know what's using my battery even without permission. It doesn't want these things until a month or more in. Uninstalling right away.

The ability to run in the background at any time is necessary for the app to respond to your requests in real-time. This does not mean that it will always being running, however. It only runs as needed and should not have any impact on battery life. You are free to disable any other permissions if you don't need the features they allow.
