To make Amazon Alexa as your default assistant on your Android, you need to make sure that you have the latest version of the Alexa app on your Android device. You can download the app directly from Google Play or visit APKpure to download its APK file.

HOW TO SET AMAZON ALEXA AS DEFAULT ASSISTANT ON ANDROID
Once you have the latest Alexa app on your Android device, go to Apps > Default > Assist & voice input and then select Amazon Alexa after tapping the Assist app option.
After the above procedure, your device will ask you to allow the Alexa app to read information about apps that are in use on your system, including information visible on your screen or accessible within the apps. This will be followed by a permission request screen – specifying that Alexa will hear your requests, control smart home devices, and get location-relevant results. You need to hit the Allow button on screen to begin the action.
Once you grant the necessary app access, Alexa is ready as your default assistant. You need to long-press the home button on your device to activate Alexa for your commands. This means that you can’t use “Alexa” hotword or squeeze the edge of the phone, as in the case of the Pixel 2, to trigger Alexa.
Also, the use cases of Alexa as the default voice assistant are initially limited if we compare them with the features offered by Google Assistant. Always remember that Alexa doesn’t allow you to make voice calls or send messages simply by passing voice commands.
If in case you want to go back to the past and bring Google Assistant back for all your operations, you just need to select Google as the default Assist app.
