Alexa will tell you when it has done its homework

Alexa tell me what you didn't know before

The feature will alert users when Alexa has found the answer to a question it previously did not know when initially asked. As Alexa is ever improving and evolving with its environment, the feature is a reminder of Amazon's efforts at expanding the knowledge graph of the digital assistant. Clever things, these AIs. 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". Editor Bret Kinsella said he first encountered the feature on Monday when Alexa asked if he wanted to enable it.

Ricciardo has been with Red Bull Racing since 2014 and has brought 7 victories, 29 podium finishes, 2 pole positions and 904 championship points to date.

Notably, the Answer Update feature will be an opt-in feature that is expected to roll out to Amazon Alexa users over the next week. Traditionally, when you ask Alexa a question it doesn't know the answer to, it will simply respond with a variant of "Sorry, I don't know that one", or "Hmm, I don't know that". To enable it, say "Alexa, enable answer updates". "This means the device's light ring will circulate with a green light and there will be a chime". From that point on, Alexa will remember whenever she's unable to answer a question, and let users know when she learns the answer. Unfortunately for Amazon, nobody really uses that feature.
