Since its inception, unless you had a supported PC, you’d have to hit a button inside the Amazon Alexa app on Windows 10 to summon the voice assistant. Only certified PCs could let you trigger Alexa by saying her voice. But starting today, a new update is rolling out to all Alexa app for Windows 10 users through the Microsoft Store that adds hands-free voice recognition for all PCs.
So long as the Alexa app is running on your PC, you’ll be able to simply say “Alexa” and begin asking a question, just like with a typical smart speaker. Functionality-wise, you get all the Alexa Skills available, Cortana integration, shopping functions connected to Amazon, and more. You can download the latest version of the Alexa app here.
