Amazon Alexa Gets New 'Brief Mode' That Keeps Responses Shorter

Posted by · 7032 views · Translate

Amazon has pushed an update to Alexa that introduces 'Brief Mode', reports Engadget. Enabling this mode makes Alexa speak less and for some simple requests she'll play a short sound instead of speaking a verbal message.

What apparently started as a quick test has rolled out to more devices, with at least one user saying it's preferable to the constant verbal confirmations. If you have version 2.2.202313.0 on iOS (which rolled out yesterday) if you navigate to settings > general > Alexa Voice Responses you'll see the option to turn Brief Mode on. If you're looking for a little peace and quiet from your smart speakers, this could be just the respite you've been waiting for.

The second generation Echo is currently on sale for $84.99. You can download the Amazon Alexa app from here.
