“Alexa, call for food to be ready”. Amazon is working hard to make Alexa the smart assistant with constant updates in the functionality of the Echo devices . In the last few weeks, for example, there was a short mode that only gives a ping when your command is understood, a follow-up mode that lets you ask several questions in a row and yesterday they announced that you will soon see “Alexa, good morning “and then a playlist is automatically started.
Now you could already talk back and forth with different Echoes, especially if you have the new versions with a screen . Alexa Calling, Messaging and Drop In (a real intercom) let you talk to each other in different ways and this broadcast function makes it even easier to not have to move to communicate. So ideal, but we have to wait a little longer. The new functionality did not yet work on both a European (International) Echo and a VK version. When it will roll out outside the US and Canada Amazon has not said.
