Frequently Asked Questions

The new products from Facebook work just like most other products with Alexa Built‑in. You can link your Amazon account through the setup experience or in product settings.

To get started, sign in with your Amazon account and ask Alexa a question. Try “Alexa, what’s the weather?”

Currently you can only link one Alexa account at a time on each device.

To talk to Alexa, just say her name and ask a question. When you say “Alexa” you’ll see a visual cue on your Portal device to indicate she can hear you.

Alexa only responds to the wake word “Alexa” on Portal. You can then use all of the available Alexa commands. “Hey Portal” is used to access Portal features, such as calling and answering.

For example:

Start a call by saying, “Hey Portal, call [contact name].“

Check the weather by saying, “Alexa, what’s the weather forecast?“

With Alexa Built‑in, you can listen to music, see the news, check the weather, make lists, set timers, control your smart home and more – all you have to do is ask. Alexa is always getting smarter and we’re rolling out new features in subsequent software updates.
