Amazon launched several updates to make Alexa more kid-friendly. First, voice profiles — which can detect which user is speaking — can now provide customized voice experiences for children. Second, ‘Reading Sidekick’ is the company’s reading tutor that leverages Alexa to help children master their reading skills. The child can ask “Alexa, let’s read,” and the Sidekick, the assistant, and the child can take turns reading the selected book. Amazon already has Alexa speakers specifically targeted to children, along with additional Alexa features packaged with Amazon FreeTime. This week’s new releases will help build on Amazon’s goal to make Alexa an entertainment and educational companion for children.
