Alexa 'Answer Update' Feature Will Get Back to You Later

Alexa tell me what you didn't know before Alexa tell me what you didn't know

"Once Answer Updates is turned on, each time you ask Alexa a factual/informational question and she doesn't know the answer, she will go find it and send you a notification on the Echo device when she has it", Amazon explained.

So while Amazon's Alexa is able to make some aspects of life easier, using voice commands to shop online just hasn't become a habit for most people, at least not yet. It does not matter whether you are managing your personal schedule, listen to music, navigate a route to the destination, reading the news or looking for nearest service center Seat.

Despite the sale of 50 million Alexa-abled devices, merely 2% of the buyers have made purchases with their own voices in 2018. Even those functions can be cagey: As Gizmodo colleague Alex Cranz noted in a recent review of Amazon's Fire TV Cube, voice-controlled systems can turn simple tasks into irritating shouting sessions.

"We're excited for SEAT to incorporate Alexa into its vehicles", says Ned Curic, who is in charge of Amazon Alexa's automotive division. That includes Alexa, the digital assistant found in a range of Echo smart speakers.

"Clearly, voice shopping is not yet in the stage of being a mass market product", one of the sources said.

"Millions of customers use Alexa to shop because it is the most convenient way to capture needs in the moment", an Amazon spokesperson told the site. It offers a wide variety of features including but not limited to answering questions. (Hence the heavy slant towards home products, in which picking an exact item matters less than, say, a new TV, a specific type of phone charger, or a chef's knife.) At the end of the day, the best tool to do that - a computer or smartphone - is already in all of its customers' hands.

Amazon's home devices are making the hands-free future a reality with the seemingly never-ending debut of new skills, but the latest one that allows you to never leave your home (or couch) again?
