Control your Alexa device with Amazon Alexa
The free Amazon Alexa app turns your smartphone or mobile device into a controller for any device controlled by the Alexa system. Use the app to manage your preferences, create shopping lists and more, even when you're not around your Alexa device. Perhaps the most important feature is the ability add Skills -- integration with third-party apps -- to Alexa. If you don't have Amazon Prime, for instance, you can set Alexa to stream music from your Spotify account.
