It is already been quite some time since Amazon has brought the virtual speakers to the unsettling market. Let’s have a look at it and see how it is doing ever since its launch. Amazon is making the world a better place to live, with its amazing gadgets: Alexa, of course, and then there is Kindle which had given a new dimension to the readers. Amazon has gone big on Alexa and its Echo devices and reports suggest that it holds 75% of virtual speakers market in the UK. Such is its prowess in the UK.
Let’s talk about the previous generation Echo 2 and see how they changed their game to make Amazon Echo 3 rd generation, a supreme product in the market of virtual speakers.
There are a lot of things to like about Amazon Echo 2, and Amazon has been repeatedly adding new skills and features to make its product a smarter device. Having said that, it looks like one weak thing that they had encountered in Echo 2 was the voice clarity. Many believed that instead of increasing the voice quality Amazon had made it worse which sounded terrible to them. For instance, listening podcast or radio was not an issue but when it came to listening to music the listeners wished they shouldn’t have bought it. In the later days, Amazon fixed it by sending out a software update which at least put the device on par with the bigger original.
So, to make it worth buying the imperative changes were made for making a better sounding voice assistant.
Another thing that they were lagging in the area was improving the voice recognition system.
Although Amazon Echo 2 brought better microphones for superior ‘wake word recognition’ but it was still not impeccable. On occasion, Alexa didn’t even respond if something was running in the background (including when The Echo is playing music) and, contrarily, piped up sometime when no one even mentioned Alexa.
So, to make an exemplary experience Amazon noticed the flaw and worked on it to give their users the better ‘wake word recognition’ system. In our words we can put it this way, a better ‘wake word recognition’ update made Alexa respond only when someone said ‘Alexa’ specifically.
Amazon Echo 3 RD generation has made it possible to have a virtual assistant in the home to make life easier and convenient.
