Echo Dropin On Android Device
« on: November 01, 2018, 10:19:05 am »
Good Afternoon.

I have the alexa app on my android phone and I purchased an echo dot. I can drop in on the echo dot from my phone and I presumed I could  do the opposite, that is, drop in on my phone from my echo dot.

The reason I ask is I am Nan's carer and I have set her up an echo dot as well so she can drop in on me were ever I have a dot arround the house. I was hoping that I could extend this to my 4g/3g android phone while out on the road. I have searched google but can not come up with anything. Is it even possible? Any help would appreciated.

Thanks In Advance

You cannot drop in on a phone because, well, it's a phone.
You can only drop in on Echo devices. I'm pretty sure that also means drop in will not work on Fire tablets and Fire TV devices either.
