You can now use Alexa in the Amazon app on your iPhone

The main Amazon Shopping app has been updated to enable users to voice search for products, track orders, re-order products or add items a cart/list. If you do not have the Amazon Shopping app or do not have Amazon Alexa already downloaded onto your iOS device, you can head over to Apple's App Store and download them both right now.

Thus far, Alexa has been exclusive to Amazon's own lineup of devices, like the Echo or the Fire TV Stick. Here's everything you need to know about Alexa on iOS, including how it works and what it can do.

Alexa lives in the microphone icon next to the search bar in the Amazon Shopping app. The company did not specify why it's bringing the assistant to its main app instead of the Alexa app, but the former should introduce it to a much wider audience.

Those who have smart technology across their home will likely find Amazon's iPhone expansion most helpful. You will be able to ask Alexa anything from within the Amazon Shopping app, such as looking for music, looking for weather, reading Kindle books, and anything else you want. Instead you can just open up the app. Alexa in the app will also continue getting better.

However, Alexa may truly challenge Siri when it comes to smart home controls.
