Amazon Enhances Alexa With Geolocation And New Commands


This week Amazon's Alexa got a little bit smarter with the addition of some new enhancements and features. According to Digital Trends, one of the most important improvements is geolocation, which allows Alexa to automatically activate location-based routines every time a user enters or leaves a location. That means tasks like the lights turning on will happen automatically when you get home or your music will turn off on its own when you leave the house. There are also some new kid-friendly routines, including a customizable "Good Night" routine. Other new features include a "Do Not Disturb" command, a "Stop Audio" command, and you can now ask Alexa to check your email and read important messages to you.
