Alexa is my new BFF (The 3:59, Ep. 275)

An inside look at Amazon's quest to make its digital assistant more human.


Amazon is working to make Alexa more humanlike and conversational.

Becoming a chattier, smarter voice assistant could make Alexa a much more important part of your life, but it would also raise new problems, like privacy concerns. We talk about a handful of these topics on today's show, along with discussing the completion, on Monday, of Amazon's huge deal for Whole Foods.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
