Alexa Mobile Accessory (AMA) Overview


The Alexa Mobile Accessory (AMA) Kit allows any Bluetooth-capable device manufacturer to enable Alexa through a Bluetooth connection. With the AMA Kit, Bluetooth devices, such as headphones, speakers, and wearable audio devices become Alexa endpoints by connecting directly with the Amazon Alexa app on a mobile device. The AMA Kit, which contains documentation and development tools, is available to Alexa Voice Service (AVS) developers to simplify development of AMA-compatible devices.
