Alexa Drop In is a new and exciting feature recently introduced by Amazon. It is a communication feature intended to easily check-in on relatives without the need to call them, however, it also has some fun added features for households or businesses with multiple Echos or Echo Dots.
How Does Alexa Drop In Work?
Alexa Drop In allows for you to instantly connect with other Echo devices completely hands free. This means that that you check in with your mom or other close friends with a few simple voice commands! You can only do this with people you manually approve of, so you don’t have to worry about accidently calling your boss at 4 am. It is more meant so that you can engage with people in your closest circle easier than ever -almost as if they were in the room with you! It is kind of like a hands-free walkie talkie system if you want to think of it that way.
This has made it simpler to set some time out of your busy schedule to connect with people. You can chat while you cook or even work on assignments together from practically anywhere in the world and without having to do so much as to lift a finger!
Alexa Drop In On Echo
While intimate connections are the intended purpose of Alexa Drop In, this is not the only way you can utilize this! For one thing, having this instant, hands-free connection can be very useful in the workplace. Imagine being able to bypass phones and e-mails to be able to give your employees and coworkers important information! Having multiple Echo and Echo Dots under the same roof also allows you to transform your Alexa into a smart intercom system!
From the comfort of your desk, you can simultaneous respond to e-mails while giving instructions to your employees. In more of a household example, you can be getting ready to leave while giving your kids that 10-minute warning that they have to get up and go. This is certainly going to save time and make any walks of life just a little bit more convenient.
This new Alexa feature is certainly revolutionizing the way that we are able to communicate with people without actually having to be there in the same room with them.
Other Amazon Alexa Features
It is important after reading through this that you don’t forget that this not even close to all that Alexa has to offer. Alexa is a smart assistant, much like Siri, but for Amazon’s smart speaker. It’s sole purpose it to make your life easier -a task which I think it accomplishes flawlessly! This Amazon smart-assistant has revolutionized the way do we do a lot of things are has countless features to help out our everyday lives.
If you need any more evidence, let’s just take the time to review some of Alexa’s skills. Now Alexis skills are also optional features. To enable them, all you have to do is say “Alexa, enable…” and then whatever predownloaded skill name you can desire. Whether you are looking to play some games or analyze breeches in security, it is all up to you. You can use these hands-free voice command systems to do a lot of things. Ordering and Uber, planning a vacation and even searching for recipes while you are cooking are some neat things to do. You can even start some cars with Alexa from the comfort of anywhere in your house -and if that’s not the sign we are in the golden age of technology, I don’t know what is.
If nothing else, I think this new Drop In feature has defiantly made the Amazon Echo a more useful device. Whether you are operating a business or running a busy household, Alexa has something she can offer you to make your life just a little bit easier. Certainly, Amazon is making great strides in revolutionizing what we should expect from out Smart Speakers.
