Thanks to a third-party app, you can use Amazon Alexa on your iWatch, with limited functionality.
Amazon Alexa of course was never meant to run on an Apple Watch. However, thanks to a third-party app called Voice in a Can, you can now use Amazon Alexa on your iWatch. It is a standalone app, so you do not need your phone or anything. All you need to do is install it and connect to your Amazon account.
There are some limitations: it can’t play music, audiobooks or podcasts. Some daily flash briefings don’t work either. However, it is still useful, as you can control smart home items which are linked to Alexa. But there is one small annoyance – when the screen goes black, you will be disconnected from Alexa. Right now, the app is 2 USD in the App Store. But we’re not sure if the app will stay there from a long time, since it can be taken down if Apple or Amazon don’t like it.
