The Alexa Conversation Mode is already among us. The first device to receive it is the new one Echo Show 10, Amazon’s cover letter for this Christmas campaign. With this mode, the company has made an effort to make conversations with our virtual assistant more natural. Do you want to know how it works? We will tell you.
How Alexa Talk Mode works
Until now, to speak to our speaker we had to mention Alexa, before each sentence. “Alexa, turn on the lights”, “Alexa, tell me what’s up today”, “Alexa, what is the capital of Brazil?” The truth is that the command is already natural in itself, but if we wanted to give it several orders in a row or ask it consecutive questions, we could do something heavy and, now, unnatural.
Therefore, Amazon has designed a new way to interact with this artificial intelligence. It’s as simple as saying just once “Alexa, join the conversation”. In this way, anyone in the room can speak, from that moment with Alexa, without having to invoke her every time we want to ask or ask for something. That is, Alexa will remain silent while we do our routines and, when she considers that we need something, she will become part of the conversation. Yes, we will have to be facing the camera and looking at the screen to be taken for granted. When we want you to stop participating in the conversation, we will only have to ask you expressly and it will happen.
For now, this feature is available only on Echo Show 10, but it is expected that in the near future it will reach the rest of the models of the family. Note that conversations are recorded and uploaded to the cloud, yes, without images. In any case, we recommend that you periodically review and erase your information to better manage your privacy on the web.
