Answer Update lets Alexa get back to you when she's stumped

Amazon Alexa doesn't have all the answers. Amazon is now rolling out a new support feature to its Alexa-enabled devices, which will dredge up previous questions you asked when Alexa gains the necessary knowledge to answer them. But now, the virtual assistant can remember questions it can't answer, and get back to you later if it finds an appropriate response.

This promotion is only available to those who have an Alexa-enabled device, like the Echo Dot linked to their Amazon account, but at this point that's likely most of you.

Amazon Alexa will send the notification on the device where you have enabled the feature, a TechCrunch report said.

Incredible footage of a "firenado" has been captured by firefighters while battling a huge inferno at a plastics factory. Leicestershire Fire Service Firefighters have now released footage of the blaze.

"Answer Update" needs to be enabled by the user, who will be prompted to turn it on after asking Alexa a question that she can not answer immediately.

Once this feature rolls out, when you ask Alexa a question it doesn't know the answer to, it will prompt you to enable Answer Updates. The user can later opt out of the "Answer Update" feature by saying, "Alexa, turn off Answer Update".

As spotted by Voicebox, Amazon is rolling out a feature called Answer Update on Alexa devices over the next week. As Alexa is ever improving and evolving with its environment, the feature is a reminder of Amazon's efforts at expanding the knowledge graph of the digital assistant.
