The amiibo phone appears in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, located inside Nook's Homes. When the player uses the amiibo phone, they must scan an amiibo figure or card. So they can build a house for that character, or get a special item (the golden villager trophy). However, it cannot be used when a work day has been finished. It is unlocked when enough progress is made in Happy Home Designer.
The amiibo phone can only recognize Animal Crossing amiibo figures and cards from the original four amiibo card series. Attempting to scan an amiibo from outside the Animal Crossing series yields the message, "Beep! I'm sorry, but I'm afraid I can't connect with any animals who don't live in this town." Attempting to scan a card from the Welcome amiibo series freezes the game. This includes Carrie's amiibo card, despite her being a client within the game.
