You can now manage which Alexa Skills can send your Echo devices notifications

Quote:
Amazon introduced Alexa notifications earlier this year and kicked things off with the ability for Echo device’s to notify you when your Amazon shipments were on their way. Third-party Alexa Skills were said to follow with notifications privileges and now they’re here with a new way to manage them in the Alexa app.

Alexa notifications are the first way for Echo devices to communicate with you without first being prompted, aside from alarms and timers. It’s a new frontier for Amazon’s line of smart speakers, so it’ll be interesting how they and third-party developers use the new ability.

Thankfully, all notifications, whether they come from Amazon or from third-parties, are disabled by default. You have to manually enable them individually, on a per skill basis, within the Alexa app.

Best of both worlds: Amazon Music seamlessly integrates the power of voice into its easy-to-use visual app interface

Listeners in the US, UK, Germany and Austria can now use Amazon Music’s innovative Alexa voice controls for music wherever they go

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 26, 2017-- (NASDAQ:AMZN)—Starting today, Alexa is now available in the Amazon Music app on iOS and Android in the US, UK, Germany and Austria, combining the power of natural language voice controls with a rich, visual app experience. Tens of millions of songs are now at the tip of your tongue as well as the tips of your fingers – wherever you go.

Music listeners now have more choice than ever to find the music they want to play: either browse the app interface that Amazon Music customers already love, or just ask Alexa. To access Alexa within the Amazon Music app, simply use the push-to-talk function within the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android on connected mobile devices and tablets. To learn more, visit: www.amazon.com/alexaonmobile.

Millions of Alexa customers have enjoyed listening to music on Echo devices, and with Amazon Music’s innovative Alexa voice controls, customers can ask for music based on genre, decade, mood, tempo, activity or even the lyrics if they can’t remember the name of a song. With Alexa in the Amazon Music app, listeners can utilize the power and simplicity of voice functionality, wherever they are.

I find myself wishing I could turn off her vocal affirmation of commands. There is no need for her to say "OK" to my commands to turn things on/off. That those things DO turn on/off is the only confirmation I require. Especially in the early morning hours when she's still at last night's volume.

"Alexa, turn on the light."
OK!!
