Alexa is headed to Amazon's Android shopping app beginning this week, joining Amazon Echo speakers and iPhones as yet one more place where the digital assistant can try to make its mark.
Alexa's Android arrival comes via the dedicated Amazon Shopping app. The app's Google Play Store listing indicates it was updated on July 19. Although there's no official mention of Alexa integration in the description, so it could be updated again when Alexa officially arrives.
Amazon told when Alexa launched on iOS in March that an Android version was in the works, and today Amazon confirmed Alexa's arrival on the Google operating system to TechCrunch. While there is a dedicated Alexa app, it has between 5 thousand to 10 thousand installs on Android, compared to the Amazon Shopping app's 100 thousand to 500 thousand installs.
