Open the Alexa app on your mobile phone, tap “Communicate” on the bottom menu. Tap the person icon at the top right. Tap the 3 dots on the top right, to the right of the word “Contacts.” Tap “Add contact” and fill out your contact’s information. Click here for more info on adding and editing contacts.
