You have to admit, having a voice activated assistant is very convenient. Hands free is the way it should be. The Amazon Tap though, requires the user to “tap” before being able to issue a command. Not so convenient aye?! Well NO MORE. Amazon is updating the Tap so that it can be used like other Alexa devices by just talking to it. If I had known they were going to do this I might have bought one instead of my little Amazon Echo Dot. Reason? Well, the Tap is portable. Yes, bring Alexa wherever there is an internet connection.

They JUST rolled this update out. The new setting can be accessed via the Alexa mobile app.

If you have a Tap, welcome to the real Alexa!
