What Is Amazon’s Alexa Together Subscription Service?


Amazon is taking its caregiving service to the next level. Alexa Together will replace Care Hub in helping you stay in touch with family members in need.

Here’s everything you should know about the new subscription service, from what it’s all about to what you can expect when in rolls out.

What Is Alexa Together?

Alexa Together is basically an upgraded version of Care Hub. In addition to existing features that let you check up on relatives, there are new tools for extra assistance and fast response in emergencies.

Together will only be available in the United States at first, but it’s eventually expected to replace Care Hub completely. It's one of Amazon’s recent bold moves alongside giving customers the chance to buy a new Astro home robot.

The subscription for Alexa Together will be $19.99 per month, but new customers can get a free trial for up to six months. Existing Care Hub customers can look forward to their own perks when they upgrade.

What Does Alexa Together Feature?

According to Amazon, you and your family circle will only need one subscription between you. The family member you’re caring for must have an Echo or other Alexa-enabled device, while you can just use the mobile app.

The key tools carried forward from Care Hub include:

  • Quick remote interactions
  • Easy setup of emergency contacts through Amazon
  • Customized and direct alerts for your family member
  • Activity feed so you can keep an eye on how they use Alexa

In terms of the enhanced features, these are the best:

  • 24/7 hands-free access to online assistance
  • Remote assist so you can manage your loved one’s Alexa functions
  • Compatibility with fall detection services like Vayyar and SkyAngelCare so Alexa can instantly call for help

Amazon Alexa Together Subscription Features

Currently, an Alexa Together subscription lets you care for only one family member. Amazon hopes to expand this number as the service develops.

Unlock Alexa’s Full Potential

Amazon is making every effort to turn Alexa into the perfect digital assistant. Its tools for helping vulnerable relatives certainly go a long way, and Alexa Together’s subscription package seems more than ready to impress, but also make people’s lives far more comfortable.

To get as much as possible out of your smart assistant, take the time to explore its wide range of skills. The more you discover, the better it can benefit your lifestyle, not to mention your emergencies.
