So you can change the Google Assistant for Alexa from your Android mobile

  • It is necessary that you previously create an Amazon account to log in.
  • After doing so, click on the “Settings” that are located in the side menu.
  • The next step is to click on the “Alexa Hands-Free” section and activate the switch of the same name.
  • A window will be enabled where you will have to repeat 5 voice commands, it is a voice recognition practice so that Alexa identifies you when you call her.
