How To Remove Contacts From Alexa

If you need to edit or remove a contact from Alexa you will need to go to the Alexa app on your device.

Update: this functionality was disabled by Alexa in a recent update, so you are no longer able to delete contacts from Alexa.

Update 2: we have just launched an Alexa Skill – Your Contacts News reading you the latest news affecting your contacts and their companies!

The skill give you the perfect excuse to reach out to a friend or acquittance to ensure you build and maintain contact and rapport: congratulate them on their recent acquisition, or take a jab at their newly announced dress-code policy!

It takes 3 easy steps to setup: 

  1. Download and sign-up to Covve, available for both Android and iOS
  2. Enable the Alexa skill Your Contacts News
  3. Authenticate (login) with Covve and you are done – just ask Alexa to “Open my contacts news”, and you will get the 5 most recent news stories affecting your contacts and their companies.

Covve’s AI-powered News Engine scans more than 150 news sources, reads the articles and understands what companies they are referring to, what the key message of the article is, how important it is to the company and which of your contacts are affected by it.

How you could previously remove contacts from Alexa – not available since a recent Alexa update:

Open the Alexa app. Go to Conversations tab in your Alexa account.


Click on the contacts icon in Alexa. It will show you all of the contacts that you have.



Locate the contact that you wish to delete and select that contact and then click on the delete or block button.
