29 Apr Amazon Alexa will now reward kids that say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’
Alexa, the virtual assistant created by Amazon, has been modified so that it can offer positive feedback to children who speak politely. The update has been announced following concerns of some parents that use of the product was encouraging children to express themselves rudely. The new Echo Dot speakers also feature special controls for parents that let them shut down Alexa or monitor how their kids are using it. Amazon has now introduced Amazon FreeTime on Alexa, which features a number of parental controls that adults can utilise to monitor the way their children use the smart assistant. via BBC.
