It's been a long time, but you can now whisper to your Amazon Echo and Alexa will literally whisper to you.
When enabled, Alexa will be able to tell when you're whispering and when she responds, whispering back instead of talking to her normal volume. It is certainly better than their full volume reactions to trying to keep it quiet in a sleeping household.
CONNECTION: How to get the most out of your Amazon Echo
There are several ways to enable this feature:
- Open the Alexa app on yours Smartphone and navigate to Settings> Alexa Account> Alexa Voice Responses> Whisper Answers.
- Just say "Alexa, turn on whisper mode."
Once you set it up, Alexa will automatically whisper answers to you, depending on whether you whisper or not. Even in short mode, ringing rings at a lower volume. Pretty neat!
