AT&T skill for Alexa lets you dictate and send texts with an Echo

Amazon’s voice assistant service, Alexa, knows plenty of skills. Book a flight? Done. Tell you the scores? Also done. Buy things on Amazon? Don’t be conceited — done.

But AT&T has a new “Send Message” skill it will offer so that you can use your Echo, Echo Dot, Tap or whatever Alexa-enabled device you have to get texts over to the most important people in your contacts list. You can tell Alexa your message to send and who out of ten selected contacts to send it to.

The skill, which Ma Bell claims is a first in its industry, debuts Friday.

Texting? Done.
