Amazon is rolling out Whisper Mode for Alexa users in the US

Alexa whisper mode

Some of these seem more useful than others - I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the Echo Wall Clock - but new products weren't the only topic of the day. Users can whisper normal Alexa commands and the smart assistant will whisper right back to you.

It allows the Echo smart speakers to intelligently reduce the voice assistant's volume when you whisper a command to it.

Everyone knows you should never wake a sleeping baby.

Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans hospitalized following alleged assault
Through sobs, Evans states her name for the 911 operator and says, "My name is Jenelle Eason-Evans...and my husband assaulted me". Apparently, she chose to take none, as David was not arrested and no police report was filed.

Whisper mode was one of several software updates Amazon showed off last month. For example, if you were having a conversation with someone and lowered your voice to a whisper, the person would naturally respond in-kind. With the new Whisper Mode, when you whisper to Alexa, she will whisper back.

Open up the Alexa app on your phone and navigate to Settings Alexa Account Alexa Voice Responses Whispered Responses.

Whisper Mode is reportedly powered by the same technology behind Alexa Guard, which recognises smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, and glass breaking, turning Alexa into a home security system. TechCrunch also notes that you can turn on Whisper Mode by saying - what else? There's no word regarding when Whisper Mode might launch to global markets. If you don't see the option either, just keep checking back, as it should be live soon.
