If you’d rather use your Echo for more practical things, don’t worry – you’re in luck. Because the Amazon device can now help you raise your kids, apparently.
In news that leaves us no choice but to accept our robot overlords, Amazon recently unveiled the Echo Dot Kids Edition, which is designed to encourage children to be polite.
Personal assistant Alexa has been transformed into a Mary Poppins-style figure for the new release, where it will chide children if they fail to say “please” and “thank you” during a voice command.
If children do remember their Ps and Qs, they also get a reward from the Echo. And by ‘reward’, we mean a grateful response from Alexa, who will say: “Thank you for asking so nicely.”
