Amazon rolled out a new feature that piggybacks on voice calling: Drop In. This is intended for calling relatives and checking in on them with video or voice calling. But for users with multiple Echos or Echo Dots scattered around their house, it also doubles as an intercom system. You can drop in on the kitchen from the upstairs Echo, or check in on the kids in their bedroom from the Alexa app on your phone. Here's how to set up and use Drop In. How to setup Drop In For starters, Drop In is slightly different than a voice call in that those you allow to Drop In on you can literally drop in whenever. When dropping in, the person on the other end doesn't have to answer, you connect automatically and it works like an intercom system. You can immediately begin speaking and you can hear anything happening near the speaker you've connected to. If you Drop In on an Echo Show (from the Alexa app or another Echo Show), you and your contact will see a frosted glass video that will clear up after connecting.
