Follow up mode has been great in being able to invoke really quick follow ups to questions. In the right circumstances, it’s like a hot knife through butter. In other circumstances, it can be like a hot knife for eating soup.
“Alexa, how’s the weather?”
“… and tomorrow?”
“… and in Chicago?” (this one fails and starts a new query)
At least the first two provide a good example.
When does it not work?
- “Alexa, stop” (and still listening)
- When Alexa accidentally triggers and responds during a conversation and then does it again on follow up mode.
- You’re listening to a podcast out loud while asking Alexa a question.
It would be great if “stop listening” command could quickly shut down follow up mode.
