After adding a new male voice to the AI-powered voice assistant Alexa, Amazon is now rolling out new features for smart speakers that can automatically turn up the volume in noisy environments. This feature, called Adaptive Volume, detects ambient sounds and automatically adjusts the volume of Alexa-enabled speakers to help you hear Alexa’s response more clearly.
The company recently announced this feature, stating that the new adaptive volume mode is designed to assist users. Listen clearly to Alexa’s response in a noisy and noisy environment.. Therefore, with this feature, Amazon smart speakers use a microphone to intelligently detect environmental sounds and increase the volume of Alexa’s response. This allows you to hear Alexa even if there is background noise in the room.
This feature automatically turns up Alexa’s volume when needed, but doesn’t turn it down when the environment is quiet. Instead, Adaptive Volume restores Alexa’s audio to its original volume when there is less environmental noise. So if you want your assistant to speak at a lower decibel when someone says you’re sleeping, you can enable whisper mode by asking them to “turn on whisper mode.”
A new adaptive volume feature is now available and is currently being rolled out to users in the United States. Therefore, if you live in the United States, you can ask Alexa to “turn on adaptive volume” to enable this feature on your smart speaker right away. However, Amazon does not say whether it will add this feature to customers around the world in the future.
