The robust technology of Apple watches empowers you to perform several functions from the wrist. A critical aspect of this is a voice assistant service, which lets you manage things smoothly. However, the Apple watch has limited access to only Siri and not for any other voice assistant service. That’s where Voice in a Can app enables you to access Amazon Alexa features. Though the Apple watch doesn’t have an official Alexa app, this third-party app allows you to interact with Alexa and gives you access to several elements. Voice in a Can app makes Apple watch compatible with having access with limited features of Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa.

It is a third party Alexa app, which means it doesn’t allow you to make phone calls, play music, or make echo announcements. Nevertheless, it supports the smart home feature, which enables you to manage things effectively from the wrist. Like you can trigger on lights or off and other Alexa enabled devices. Here we are giving you a description of how to set up this app & use on Apple watch Series 4, Series 3, and remaining.
