First Things First: Download the Alexa App
It stands to reason that before you can setup the Alexa Echo app, you have to get the right one downloaded. To download the Alexa app, complete the following:
Ensure that the device you’re using to download the Alexa Echo app is up to date. For iOS devices you need version 11.0 or higher, Android devices need to be at least 5.1, and if you’re using a Fire device, make sure that it is at least version 5.3.3. Download the Alexa app by opening your Play Store/App Store and typing in “Amazon Echo” and locate the app, generally the first or second option, that shows the developer as “AMZN Mobile LLC” or “Amazon Mobile LLC.”
Tap Get/Install and once the download is complete, tap Open. Either sign in with your existing Amazon account login information or create a new account and sign in.
That’s how you download the Alexa app quick and easy.
