Alexa is a popular cloud-based voice service available on over 100 million devices. However, many reported that Alexa for Windows 10 is not available.

We covered a similar subject in our Cortana isn’t available guide, but since this is a third-party application, the methods we’re going to use have to different, so let’s get started.

Why can’t I download Alexa on Windows?

  • It’s possible that the app isn’t available for your country yet.
  • Glitches and issues with Microsoft Store cache.
  • Date and time aren’t correct on your PC.
