How Does Drop In Work?

Drop In is an optional feature that lets you connect instantly to supported Alexa-enabled devices, like an intercom.

Use Drop In to open an instant conversation between your devices or with your Alexa contacts. When you receive a Drop In, the light indicator on your Echo pulses green and you connect to your contact automatically.

Use Drop In to:

  1. Have a two-way conversation by connecting to one of your Alexa-enabled devices ("drop in on Kitchen").
  2. Connect to a specific device group ("drop in on living room").

    Note: Only one Alexa-enabled device from the device group connects.

  3. Have a group conversation with all supported Alexa-enabled devices under your Amazon household, which are not set to do not disturb. To start a group conversation ask Alexa to Drop In everywhere.

    Note: All supported Alexa-enabled devices under your Amazon household account will connect regardless of their physical location

  4. Drop In on a contact who granted you Drop In permissions.
  5. Receive Drop In from a contact whom you granted Drop In permissions.

Group Drop In Tip: Reduce audio feedback by having Drop In enabled on only one Alexa enabled device per room.
