One of the new features announced at Amazons recent event was whisper mode. This, aptly named, feature, means that if you whisper a question at one of your Echo smart speakers, it will answer you in an equally whispered tone.
This is obviously great for those occasions when you don’t want to disturb other people in the house but also is another step towards giving this technology a human like feel when it comes to interaction.
Whisper Mode started to roll out in the US on Thursday 18th October but hopefully will come to other countries soon. You can enable this feature by simply telling your smart speaker to “Turn On Whisper Mode” or through the settings menu in the Alexa app.
