AMAZON Alexa is useful for many things but did you know you can’t ask the virtual assistant to ring the emergency services?

Luckily, you can ask Alexa to call a specific person who could help and if you live in the US you can set up an emergency contact.

Once you’ve designated a person to this role, Alexa will contact them for you if you ask for emergency assistance.

Find the person you want to be your emergency contact and make sure you’ve added their US phone number.

Now that’s been set up, if you say “Alexa, call for help” it should ring and text your selected contact.

If you have a device that supports Alexa Communications then your contact should be able to ring you back on that.

Obviously, if you do need serious emergency assistant it is always better to ring the emergency services straight away if you can.

Alexa’s emergency contact feature is useful for someone who can’t reach their phone at the time of the emergency.
