    Amazon Alexa gets Care Hub and other interesting features 

    Amazon has rolled out an interesting feature set for its voice assistant, Alexa. The company announced Tuesday that it is launching Care Hub, a feature that would help users keep an eye on older parents. In addition to this, Amazon also revealed that it is making Alexa smarter by implementing a feature that would make the voice assistant read the user’s mind and respond accordingly.

    Amazon launched Care Hub to allow users to keep an eye on their elderly parents’ activities. At the same time, they want seniors to feel more confident about living independently. “Introducing the Care Hub, a new set of features for the United States designed to help simplify the remote care experience for both the person providing support and their loved one. Care Hub offers customers a new and easy way to control loved ones remotely while maintaining privacy, with features like high-level activity feed and alerts. It also gives older customers the convenience of knowing they can just ask Alexa to call for help if they need it, ”Amazon said in the blog.

    The feature will be available to users in the United States. To use the feature, a user must create a connection between the two Alexa accounts. “The aging loved one will need an Echo or Alexa-enabled device. The family member providing support only needs the Alexa app on their phone. The Care Hub will work once your loved one sends an invitation and the family member agrees. This simple one-time setup offers a number of benefits to both people, “says the blog.

    Users will get alerts about seniors’ activities and if no activity is detected for a long time. They can easily call through the app if no activity is observed.

    In addition to this, Amazon is rolling out another feature that will allow Alexa to infer a user’s latent goals, goals that aren’t directly expressed but are implicit in requests. We are now taking another step towards natural interaction with a capability that allows Alexa to infer latent customer goals – goals implicit in customer requests but not directly expressed. For example, if a customer asks, “How long does it take to steep the tea?”, The latent goal might be setting a steeping timer for a cup of tea, “Amazon said on the blog. The new feature has already been enabled in the US, the rest of the countries are expected to receive it soon.
