Amazon Alexa just got smarter. American multinational technology company Amazon has introduced a new feature called ‘Adaptive Volume’ which makes Alexa speak aloud when it detects that the user is in a noisy environment.
According to a report from Amazon, the new feature has been introduced to ensure that the user hears Alexa’s responses to any background noise such as the sound of a dishwasher, people talking, or any other device. Music is playing.
The feature is currently available for US customers, and Amazon says a user can activate it by saying “Alexa, turn on the adaptive volume.”
However, there’s no word on whether adaptive volume will work in the opposite direction, meaning quieter when there’s no background noise.
The Amazon suggests that there are other ways to reduce the volume dynamically – one of them is Whisper Mode, where Alexa will whisper her response if you talk to her quietly. You can also tell Alexa to ‘turn on Whisper Mode.” or another way is to use the “Set Volume” feature.
