I would like to create a skill like Beppe_61 (Send SMS using API Block) to activate or deactivate an Alarm device using voice. The skill should use the smartphone where alexa app is installed instead of using external services. is it possible ?
In other words: Can alexa send an sms using the traditional smartphone where the alexa app is installed ?
as far as I know, there is no way to send sms via alexa app. alexa app currently doesn’t allow open or connect with other apps, including sms, in your phone.
Thinking about other ways like ifttt, but I couldn’t come up with any good one.
thanks for your reply. Before write to the forum I tried the solution below but in my app language, this setting is not present. https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-send-text-messages-with-alexa/
thanks for your link! I’m using iPhone and JP locale, so I’ve never thought of that.
