Amazon’s virtual personal assistant Alexa is awesome, but it does have a few drawbacks. Namely, it isn’t available everywhere we want it to be. Sure, Alexa isn’t just confined to Amazon’s own speakers like the Amazon Echo anymore, since third-party hardware developers now have access to Alexa for free. Even still, there’s only one smartphone out there with official access to Alexa — wouldn’t it be cool if every smartphone had Alexa baked in?
