How to Find iPhone using Amazon Echo and Alexa

Check out the steps to find your iPhone with Amazon Echo and Alexa by downloading and setting up the Alexa app from App Store.

If you have an Apple Watch it is easy to locate the iPhone that you may have left somewhere in the house, for example under the sofa, under the sheets, on the kitchen table, etc., or somewhere in the office or other place nearby and not some places that you can find. On the Apple smartwatch, a swipe from the bottom to the top is enough to call up the function that allows the associated phone to ring or activate the LED flash intermittently. If we don’t have an Apple Watch, a function similar to the one that allows the iPhone to ring can be activated with Alexa, the Amazon assistant integrated into the various Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, and other speakers and smart devices. Here’s a guide on how to find your iPhone with Amazon Echo and Alexa.

If you own an Amazon Echo or Alexa device at home, you can simply use it and find your iPhone in an instant. In this guide, we have listed below the most useful and original ways to find it.

  1. First, you need to install the Alexa app from the App Store if it is not installed and complete the setup.
  2. Open the Amazon Alexa app, select the “More” option at the bottom and from here the “Skills and Games” option.
  3. In the search bar that allows you to search for skills write “Find my phone”, select the skill, and then tap on “Enable to use”.
  4. The skill requires the mobile phone number and it is necessary to save the authorization to access this data; save the authorization and complete the procedure.
  5. At this point, you can locate your phone in various ways. For example by pronouncing the phrase “Alexa, make my phone ring” near the speaker, or “Alexa, open Find my phone”, or “Alexa, ask Find my phone to ring”. Obviously, since a call is coming in, the function is useful as long as the phone is not in silent mode.
  6. If for some reason you want to remove the “Find my phone” skill, just open the Amazon Alexa app, select “Other”, look for the skill, and from the “Settings” section select the “Disable skill” item.

The above method obviously also works with Android phones and you don’t necessarily need an iPhone.
