Amazon Alexa Voice will soon speak without being asked

If you’re a user of the Amazon Alexa recognition capabilities you should know that they are about to be upgraded once again. Until now, Amazon Alexa Voice recognition is pretty efficient at replying to things you ask, but this might change in the future. A possible upgrade from now, would be to have Alexa tell you audibly or visually when you get push notifications on your device. [Read: Amazon Fire TV Alexa voice recognition is working now]

Now the Amazon Alexa Voice enabled devices will be able to give you push notifications visually or audibly without being prompted

So how will Amazon Alexa Voice recognition work now?

Details have not been revealed yet, which offers two possibilities. If developers play their cards right, this might be a revolutionary and very useful feature. However, if they abuse it, it would become annoying and even disruptive. For example, it might interrupt small kids naps or scare pets. Still, it might be a great feature if it becomes widely adopted, for example, to broadcast emergency announcements in the event of a catastrophe, or simply have it read your notifications as soon as they arrive.

It is not known yet if this new feature will come to all Alexa capable devices. Since the Amazon Fire TV 4k is able to interact through Alexa, it might seem a waste not to let users take advantage of these features. All we can hope is that the Amazon Alexa Voice unprompted notifications can be turned off somewhere in the settings. Just in case we do not want to be connected and receiving notifications without asking for them.
