some quite large at the event on September 24 last week. From adding to reduce the number of times you have to say , these features promise to make yours experience softer from start to finish.
How to use the new Alexa features announced by Amazon. Please note that some of them will not be available until later this year.
Interact with Alexa without saying the wake word every time
Alexa has not always been known as conversation. When you constantly have to say “Alexa” for every single task – even seconds apart – it can be frustrating. Fortunately, the voice assistant gets an upgrade called natural reversal that allows you to interact with Alexa without saying the alarm every five seconds.
You will be able to activate Alexa’s call mode by saying “Alexa, join our call.” Several people will be able to interact with the voice assistant without saying the wake-up call. You can even cancel. Amazon showed an example of two people ordering a pizza, both talking back and forth with Alexa about the size of pizza to order.
Learn Alexa new tricks
You will soon be able to learn Alexa with a new feature called interactive teaching. If Alexa is not sure what you are asking to do, it will start asking questions to teach you what you want it to do.
For example, if you tell Alexa to set the living room light to sleep mode, it will say “I do not know what sleep mode is. Can you teach me?” You can then tell the voice assistant that the unroll mode means that the light is dimmed. The next time you ask Alexa to perform the task, it will remember what to do.
Alexa can delete all voice interactions
Last year, Amazon added a setting that lets you. This year, Amazon announced that you can now delete every interaction you have had with Alexa with just one command. To do so, just say “Alexa, delete everything I’ve ever said.”
Previously, you had to delete all conversations with your voice assistant by going to the Alexa app’s privacy settings.
Alexa can help you review your privacy settings
Not sure where to find the Alexa privacy settings? Alexa can now help. Just ask “Alexa, how do I review my privacy settings?” Alexa then sends a link to the Alexa app that says Review your privacy settings.
When you click on the link, it takes you to the Alexa Privacy page where you can make changes to your voice history, detected sounds, smart home devices, skill permissions and Alexa data.
Along with these new Alexa features, the company also previewed its new series, a for inside your home and with animal design.
