New features are on the way for Amazon's voice assistant -- including the ability to remember things about you.
New features are on the way once more for Amazon's Alexa, the company announced in a blog post Thursday. Specifically, she's set to receive three upgrades over the course of the coming weeks:
Ruhi Sarikaya, Amazon's Director of Applied Science for Alexa Machine Learning, highlighted the new features during a keynote speech at the World Wide Web Conference in Lyon, France. In the blog post accompanying his speech, he writes that the Memory feature is "the first of many launches this year that will make Alexa more personalized."
Amazon also notes that Context Carryover will be coming soon to all Alexa users in the US, as well as users in the UK and Germany. Skills Arbitration and Memory will be US-only at launch -- no word yet from Amazon on if or when we should expect them to roll out to other regions, but it seems like a safe bet.
