According to Amazon, we will now be able to “teach” this assistant to learn specific orders that are adapted to our environment. The synthetic voice of Alexa has been improved as well and is now more natural.
On the other hand, one of the most interesting news is that “Alexa, join our conversation.” This command allows Alexa to “be a part” of the conversation and now it can talk to different parties at the same time. You don’t have to say “Alexa” all the time, but the assistant will be more attentive all the time. The price of the device is $99.99 and will be available in three colors.
