Customers are being offered 100 free minutes of calls per month to link their Skype account to their Alexa account

Amazon's new "Wake-on-LAN Controller" feature will let Alexa users power on TVs and other smart home devices that have gone into low-power mode and thus can't be reached via the cloud. Go to Settings Communication Skype to link the account. Now sign in using the same Microsoft account that you use for Skype. Users can also ask Alexa to dial a mobile or landline phone number via Skype. You can use commands such as "Alexa, call Dad on Skype" or "Alexa, Skype Mom" to initiate a call.

Furthermore, in addition to audio and video calling, Skype is also providing the ability for the Alexa users to call most of the landlines and mobiles numbers using Skype to phone, even for worldwide calls. Other countries will get it soon.
