The Amazfit GTS 2 mini gains a new feature with its latest software update
A few months have passed since Amazfit launched the GTS 2 mini, its cheaper and smaller alternative to the GTS 2. Debuting first in China, Amazfit subsequently released the GTS 2 mini in India and the US, among other markets. To recap, the GTS 2 mini has a 1.55-inch AMOLED display, a 220 mAh battery and a SpO2 sensor.
The GTS 2 mini was also supposed to support Amazon Alexa voice commands, but that functionality has only just arrived courtesy of the smartwatch's latest software update. According to XDA Developers, the update has only reached Indian devices so far, but we would expect Amazfit to roll it out to more countries soon.
Firmware version 188.8.131.52 is the version to look out for and is available through the Zepp app. In short, 184.108.40.206 should bring the voice commands that Amazon Alexa speakers support to the GTS 2 mini. There are a few hoops to enabling Amazon Alexa functionality, though. Once updated, you must follow these steps to enable Amazon Alexa on your GTS 2 mini:
- Swipe left on the smartwatch home screen and tap on 'Authorize Alexa on the device page of the app'
- From there, tap on your profile within the Zepp smartphone app and select 'Add Accounts'
- Then select Amazon Alexa and log in to your Amazon account
