Last month Amazon announced a bunch of new hardware running Alexa. With that announcement also came teasers of new features like Whisper Mode.
This new feature allows you to whisper at your Echo and it will whisper back rather than replying in a normal voice. This could be useful if you’re trying to use your virtual assistant without disturbing someone. Have you ever asked your Echo something while someone was sleeping and it replied at full volume? Not fun.
Whisper Mode is great, but it’s just a step for Amazon towards more natural speech patterns and responses. The feature is now rolling out in the US and currently only supports US English. Let us know how you like it!
