Amazon Alexa introduces ‘Answer Update’ feature for those unknown answers

Alexa's new

Although Amazon has sold zillions of voice-controlled devices like Echo and smart assistant like Alexa, its plans of getting users into buying more crap has miserably failed, as per the reports. To use the helper, just download SEAT Media Control with Amazon Alexa from the Android PlayStore, connect it to the auto, and voice service is ready for use.

Per the Information, Alexa skill developer Jo Jaquinta told the site that he generally views building third-party skills into the smart assistant as a promotional tool for brands, not a direct-sales strategy.

Despite the sale of 50 million Alexa-abled devices, merely 2% of the buyers have made purchases with their own voices in 2018.

As spotted by Voicebox, Amazon is rolling out a feature called Answer Update on Alexa devices over the next week. The question is, how many are using Alexa to order items online? Factor in the inability of a smart speaker to actually let users see the product in question or quickly browse through reviews, or the mechanics of switching between shipping and payment options, and ordering via voice suddenly doesn't sound all that great when users' money is on the line. That includes Alexa, the digital assistant found in a range of Echo smart speakers.

Amazon Alexa will send the notification on the device where you have enabled the feature, a TechCrunch report said. "The trend in voice-activated services is growing and for this reason we want to make it available to our customers". It offers a wide variety of features including but not limited to answering questions.

Conclusively, the best tool to keep people glued to shopping from Amazon is a smartphone or a computer, which is already in the hands of the customers.

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?
