Amazon's new Echo Dot Kids Edition is already seeing deals

With Amazon sharing a major portion of the transcribed data from Alexa with the law enforcement agencies, it is better not to take the presence of an Amazon Echo in your home too lightly!

With Amazon offering to unlock your front door and also unlock you auto in order to get your deliveries to you as quickly as possible, one would hope that the e-commerce/all-everything behemoth is taking security seriously.

Additionally, the extended features on FreeTime Unlimited give parents greater access to their child's activity on the Alexa app.

FreeTime Unlimited brings exclusive features to the table, such as ad-free radio or playlists, alarms from Disney and Nickelodeon characters, and premium skills from National Geographic, Disney, and Nickelodeon.

As per some sources from the web, some researchers have confirmed the fact that Amazon has developed an Alexa skill for the Amazon Echo which allows the smart speakers to indefinitely listen on to a user's conversation.

Amazon has a major obsession with reducing friction for the user.

Watching kids try to get Alexa to do their bidding is equal parts hilarious and horrifying.

Magic Word - The new Magic Word feature offers positive reinforcement when kids use the word "please" while asking questions of Alexa.

Amazon continued its push to capture more young users with the Gadgets API made especially for games, bringing Alexa beyond voice apps. "Beyond that, it may help Alexa build its value in people's homes", CNET analysed the long-term benefit the tech giant could earn from catching 'em early. Long term, Amazon wants to train kids to keep up with that brand identity, watching Prime Video instead of Netflix, listening to Prime Music instead of Spotify, and eventually shopping with Amazon over Google or other competitors.

Amazon is about to make its Alexa voice assistant smarter. And all unknowing to the user making the conversation! For example, in FreeTime Alexa doesn't answer questions about guns or alcohol.

'Tens of millions of households already use Alexa, and today we're excited to introduce an entirely new way for kids to have fun and learn with Alexa, ' said Dave Limp, Senior Vice President, Amazon Devices and Services, in a statement.

The blue ring on the Alexa-enabled device will light up during the five seconds to indicate that she's "listening". It's another Amazon paid subscription pitch, a Prime perk discount, and an effort to keep kids within its walled garden of apps, streaming content, and shopping.
