A full-featured Amazon Alexa voice assistant that can show you things
Ultimate Alexa is a full-featured voice assistant that uses the Amazon Alexa voice service, and is the first app on Google Play to support Alexa’s Display Card technology – like the Amazon Echo Show. Hear and see weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, news headlines, Wikipedia entries, and much more. Support is included for both phones and Wear OS watches. If your watch doesn't have a speaker, your connected phone's speaker will be used.
Wake up Alexa on your phone by either saying the “Alexa” wake word or tapping on the big button. You can also activate Alexa from your notification area or the resizable widget.
Upgrade to the Pro version and you can wake up Alexa by simply shaking your phone. If you have a Samsung device with a Bixby button, the Pro version also lets you use that button to talk to Alexa.
On your Wear OS watch, just tap on the big button or say "OK Google. Open Alexa".
Support is included for every Alexa feature Amazon allows, including:
- Making phone calls.
- Reading and sending text messages. Support is included for most messaging apps, including Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, your phone's SMS app, and many more.
- Playback of music and audio files stored on your phone or tablet.
- Reminders, timers, and alarms.
- Repeating alarms. For example, you can have Alexa wake you up every morning.
- Calendar entries. Hear and see your calendar items.
- Kindle book playback.
- Smart home device control.
- Access to local information: businesses, restaurants, movies, phone numbers, and more.
- News, weather, sports, and traffic.
- Fun and games.
- General information: Wikipedia entries, math, unit conversions, and more.

- And much more!
Calling and Text Messaging Availability: These features are currently available in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. A separate Alexa skill is used, which can be enabled by installing the Phone Link app.
Music Playback: Due to restrictions imposed by Amazon, music playback through voice commands is limited to music stored on your device and 3rd party skills that support music. Voice commands cannot be used to play music from Amazon and popular services such as Pandora and Spotify.
