Amazon has already made Alexa kid-friendly, with games, a simplified language setting that promotes good manners, and a Echo Dot built specifically for children.

This September, Amazon put all ways for children to interact with Alexa. Here's what's new.

Children's Routines

No, your child can not take over your Smart Home. Amazon, however, announced routines for children. Parents can use this collection of simplified templates to create routines for younger family members.

For example, when a kid says "Alexa, good night", Alexa can say a custom message, turn lights off and start music or sleep sounds. The feature comes to Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition .

Podcasts Coming to FreeTime Unlimited

FreeTime Unlimited Alexa is an Amazon subscription to kid-friendly books, TV shows, music, apps and games on supported devices such as Fire tablets, Kindle and iOS or Android devices and games of course, Echo Dot Kids Edition .

Now, Amazon adds podcasts to the list of available entertainment options. The company specifically mentioned the podcasts Story Pirates and Ear Snacks.

Audio Books by Audible

If you want to read (or listen) to your children for longer, do not be afraid. Amazon also announced that it will add more than 1,000 Audible audiobooks to the FreeTime Unlimited subscription by the end of October.

These kid-friendly announcements were just a few of many, many things that were announced by Amazon earlier this month. What else was there? Well, whisper mode for one. This is a feature that new parents will probably appreciate more than anyone else.
