Today Amazon announced the Alexa app will don a new home screen with updated navigation and a sleek new design to help customers get things done quickly with Alexa. Coming to iOS and Android, the update gives customers access to frequently-used app features directly from the home screen while navigating a simplified layout to find everything they need. As customers continue to use the Alexa app, it will provide more personalised suggestions based on what customers care about most.

Here’s What’s New in the Alexa App:

  • A More Personalised Experience: As customers use the app, they will see personalised suggestions on their home screen based on what they care about most, like accessing reminders or listening to an Audible Book.
  • Engagement with Alexa: Customers will now see the Alexa button at the top of the home screen to make it easier to immediately find Alexa and start talking. Customers can also still enable a hands-free Alexa experience, where they can just say “Alexa” whenever the app is open on the screen.
  • Suggestions for New Customers: New customers will see suggestions to get started with Alexa, to play songs from Amazon Music or to manage their shopping list.
  • “More” has Moved: Customers can now select “More” on the bottom navigation bar to bring up app-wide features such as Reminders, Routines, Skills, Settings, and more. 

Amazon is rolling out this update worldwide over the next month, and expect all existing app customers to have access to the update by late-August. New customers can download the Alexa app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
