Amazon Echo can soon answer follow-up questions without the ‘Alexa’ prompt

The Verge -------- Alexa will soon be smarter and more natural about the way it interacts with you. This includes Alexa being able to recall information you’ve told it to remember, asking multiple questions without each query beginning with “Alexa,” and launching skills through natural requests. Ruhi Sarikaya, head of the Alexa Brain group, announced the news this morning in a keynote presentation at the World Wide Web Conference in Lyon, France. In the US, users will soon be able to ask Alexa to remember important information that can be retrieved at a certain date. For example, you could say, “Alexa, remember that Sean’s birthday is June 20th.” Alexa will then reply, “Okay, I’ll remember that Sean’s birthday is June 20th.” Google Assistant has had a remember feature for some time, which can also display a list of the last five things you’ve asked it to remember. Though this feature is in infancy for Alexa, it’s a welcome addition for unloading bits of information that clutter your mind (or if you don’t want to refer to Facebook to help remember friends’ birthdays.)
