Amazon Echo Will Now Respond With Sounds With ‘Brief Mode’Amazon has apparently started pushing out a new functionality to the Echo devices called the “Brief Mode”, an optional feature that users can choose to either turn on or off, depending on whether they would like to constantly hear #Alexa‘s voice or just sounds and chimes as a form of confirmation for tasks that are being performed.
It seems like a Reddit user first spotted the rollout of Brief Mode to Amazon Echo devices, though the feature disappeared shortly after that, which may seem to suggest Amazon was initially testing the mode to check whether a considerable number of Echo device users will switch it on before releasing it to a broader scope of customers.
The arrival of the Brief Mode on Amazon Echo devices follows the launch of the “Follow-Up Mode” on all #Alexa-powered devices including the Echo smart speakers and Motorola’s Echo Moto Mod.
The Follow-Up Mode enables the #Alexa-powered device to change that and accommodate multiple questions without having to call #Alexa each time.
Both the Brief and Follow-Up modes are supposed to make the #Alexa experience for users more convenient and quick.
