Amazon releases Alexa app for Windows 10

Amazon has released an Alexa App for Windows 10 that is available to download now.
It has already been present on some Windows 10 devices but is not being rolled out to users in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany. It will be rolled out to other territories next year.

To access it, users will have to use a hotkey or clicking a button, although some devices will support the use of the Alexa app hands-free. You can use the Alexa app to control things like music playback and smart home devices but there are some early limitations.

For example, there is no initial support for the Pandora or Spotify music apps. It also cannot be used to control voice or video calls. Those features will be supported soon, however.
