Ever needed to use Alexa when it’s late but worried you might wake up the whole house?
Well, that doesn’t have to be a problem anymore because the voice-controlled assistant has a secret function for you.
As revealed by a TikTokerAlexa actually has a whisper mode.
So when it talks to you, it won’t explode at the usual volume.
Better yet, it’s really easy to use right out of the box.
Whisper while speaking to Alexa and Alexa will whisper back to you.
Alternatively, you can just say, “Alexa, turn on whisper mode” and it will wake up.
Alexa can actually do a few special tricks.
For example, did you know that it can help you find your phone if you misplaced it somewhere in your home?
Whether it got lost between the sofa cushions or ended up in the fridge (it happens), Alexa can help you find your missing device.
Assuming you verified your phone number in the Alexa app before it was lost, all you have to do is say “Alexa, find my phone” and it will call your phone so you can follow the ringtone to the destination.
Another useful little function Alexa can do is toss a coin for you.
Since credit cards and crypto are the “modern” way of paying for things, you probably don’t have much spare change.
You can avoid arguments with your friends or family simply by asking Alexa to toss a virtual coin and decide for you.
Just say “Alexa heads or tails” and the digital assistant will seal your fate.
