Skype calling with Alexa now available

Skype calling with Alexa is now available to customers in Australia, New Zealand, US, UK, India and Canada. 

The new integration allows users to connect with friends and family just by using voice commands.

By linking a Skype account, customers can use Alexa to connect with anyone who uses Skype globally. 

To use Alexa with a Skype account, users must go to the Alexa App or alexa.amazon.com, go to Menu, then Settings, then Communication. Select the link to add a Skype account and a sign-in page will appear in the app. Users must then sign in with their Skype account information to complete linking their Skype account. 

Customers can now both make and receive hands-free Skype calls on their Echo devices and in Show Mode on Fire Tablets. Skype video calling is also supported on the Echo Show and Echo Spot.

For more information, visit alexa.amazon.com.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
