New Alexa features

Taking advantage of the presentation of the new Echo models, Amazon has announced the new Alexa features. It will include, for example, the whisper mode that allows you to give personalized information without disturbing other people nearby. It will also offer two new features that will make the why of your answers more transparent. The user will be able to ask 'Alexa, tell me what you understood' and Alexa will read back your last voice command. You may also ask why did you do that? for Alexa to briefly explain why she responded this way to the last request. This feature will be available later this year.

Automatic deletion of voice recordings

Earlier this year Amazon introduced the ability for users to say 'Alexa, delete everything I said today' or 'Alexa, delete what I just said'.

Later this year Amazon will take a much-demanded step further with automatic removal. Voice recordings and transcripts older than 3 or 18 months may be auto-deleted on an ongoing basis. This function can be combined with the possibility, already available, to access and delete what has been said to Alexa individually, command by command or all at once.
