How to enable Alexa’s whisper mode, rolling out now for Echo devices
Amazon announced over a dozen brand new products last month at its hardware event in Seattle, such as the Echo Sub, Echo Link, Echo Auto, and even a smart microwave. In addition to new hardware, Amazon also showed off a few new features, including one that would allow Alexa to whisper instead of speak at full volume. Called “whisper mode,” the feature finally began to roll out to Echo users in the United States on Friday.
The use cases of the new feature are fairly obvious, but as Amazon noted in its announcement post, whisper mode is great for interacting with Alexa early in the morning before everyone is awake, or late at night after everyone has gone to sleep. With whisper mode, you will no longer accidentally wake up the entire house.
