Alexa will tell you when it has done its homework

Alexa's new

According to a study conducted by AdWeek, the Google Home is six times more likely to answer a question than Alexa. Earlier, when a user would present Alexa with a query that the voice assistant can not figure out, it would reply with phrases such as "I can not find the answer to the question I heard", or "Sorry, I didn't understand the question".

Amazon's digital voice assistant Alexa will now come back to you to answer your question from three days ago.

Amazon Alexa will send the notification on the device where you have enabled the feature, a TechCrunch report said. An Amazon spokesperson quoted that "The Alexa service is getting smarter every day, and Answer Updates is just another way we're continuing to expand Alexa's Knowledge Graph".

This is an optional feature that is not enabled by default.

"We're excited for SEAT to incorporate Alexa into its vehicles", says Ned Curic, who is in charge of Amazon Alexa's automotive division.

Everton seal Mina deal
The Toffees face Wolves on their opening day of the season on Saturday (5.30pm) before a clash with Southampton a week later. It now seems that United are buying Harry McGuire from Leicester, however.

The Knowledge Graph is the information database Alexa uses to answer questions.

Answer Updates will remain an opt-in feature which should be available to all Alexa users in the coming days.

Amazon is set to roll out their latest feature "Answer Update" for Amazon Alexa users over the next week, which will inform them when the virtual assistant learns the answer to a previously asked question. "This means the device's light ring will circulate with a green light and there will be a chime". - Just by pressing the button on the steering wheel, users will be able to ask Alexa about the music, attractions and much more without taking your eyes off the road.

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? Amazon has now added a new feature to the assistant called "Answer Update".

Tweaks like Answer Updates could help Amazon maintain its lead.
