New Whisper Mode of Alexa Goes Live

Last month in Seattle, Amazon informed about the new Whisper mode into the Alexa event. Now User can whisper with this new Smart Speaker of Amazon. Amazon has recently launched this new feature for US customers. With this, Amazon has officially launched the new Alexa Guard feature. If something happens wrong in the house like loud noise or breaking glasses then Alexa will warn you.

A report in TechCrunch has recently announced that this new whisper mode has just begun for customers in the United States. To start this new feature, you need to enable Settings> Alexa account> Alexa voice responses> Whispered responses. Or it can also be enabled by sound or voice just saying  “Alexa, turn on whisper mode” and it will work. Both Alexa Guard and Whisper mode use a long-short-term memory, explained Alexa head scientist Rohit Prasad.

A neural network has been created to understand when you’re whispering. After that Alexa has learned these whispered words. It is working in US English. This app is able to make voice interactions through context carryover.

Apart from this, you can talk to Alexa over the previous words. For example, if you ask Alexa at the beginning,  “President of the United States?” then Alexa will answer the question “Donald Trump”. Then if you ask “How tall is that?” Alexa will tell you the height of Donald Trump.
