See and do more with Alexa
Alexa connects you to the information, entertainment, and people who matter most—with just your voice. Ask to play videos and music, open apps, check the weather, access compatible smart home devices, call or message almost anyone, and much more.
Just say “Alexa”—even when the tablet screen is asleep on standby. Alexa and Fire HD 8 are designed to protect your privacy. For example, you can view and delete your voice recordings or use the Alexa Hands-Free Mode on/off toggle at any time.
A secure cover with easy access
Designed by Amazon, the slim, form-fitting case with built-in stand allows for hands-free viewing in landscape and portrait orientations.
The cover remains securely closed at home or on the go with a magnetic closure. Easy access to buttons, ports, and cameras.
