Microsoft and Amazon’s partnership continues as Amazon echo devices are getting Skype calling feature. Devices like the Echo Dot which don’t have any kind of display can be used to access Skype’s basic calling feature. Whereas hardware like the Echo Show will also include video calling support for Skype.

Users can also use Skype to call landline or Mobile using SkypeOut. You can also call contacts by merely saying “Alexa, call Tom on Skype” to activate a call. Also, you are getting free 100 minutes of calling per month for two months when you link Skype with Alexa.
