Amazon Alexa and Voice Technology: It's time to start a conversation

Cream City Digital Blog: Voice Technology
A typical technology adoption lifecycle begins with innovators, attracts early adopters and slowly begins to roll-out to the public over time.  Voice-enabled technology has eschewed that model with its innate ability to make life easier for the population at large. At Cream City Digital, we believe voice-enabled technology will change lives and transform the marketing world --  so we're primarily focusing on voice tech with this blog. If you're looking for daily curated Amazon Alexa tips, news, and how-to's, join our dedicated Facebook group.

Thanks for joining us here and reading our Alexa-focused blog posts. In 2020, we'll be moving this blog to a new website that focuses solely on Amazon Alexa and smart home tips, deals and news. We'll share new Alexa features and abilities, instructions for creating smart home routines, and information on how you can score top Alexa and smart home deals. We'll report here again when our new site launches, but if you'd like a daily dose of Alexa and smart home insight, including technical troubleshooting help from our members, join our Facebook community

If there's a storm headed your way and you suspect the power may go out, consider putting your Alexa-enabled device in "do not disturb" mode. To do this, simply say, "Alexa, do not disturb." If the power returns in the middle of the night, you won't be awakened when your device reboots and Alexa loudly announces, "HELLO!"

Do not disturb mode must be turned on individually for each Alexa-enabled device and you will still be able to issue commands to your device while in this mode.
