How to Use Alexa Brief Mode On Your Amazon Echo
Brief Mode on your Amazon Echo is designed to make Alexa speak a lot less. Although the feature won’t prevent Alexa from talking altogether, it will make confirmations and certain dialogues less chatty by replacing them with a brief tune instead.
To enable Brief Mode, open the Alexa app, tap on the “Menu” icon, select “Settings” at the bottom, navigate to “Alexa Preferences,” and then tap on “Voice Responses.” In this menu, you will be able to find the Brief Mode selection up top, where you can turn it on or off by simply tapping on its toggle switch.
When it comes to making Alexa less chatty, Brief Mode isn’t the only tool at your disposal — for instance, you can soften Alexa’s voice down to a whisper in the aptly named Whisper Mode. This feature can be found within the same menu as Brief Mode, so use the same steps outlined previously to find the toggle.
If you prefer even less noise, however, you can also utilize Follow-Up Mode at the same time, which allows you to skip saying wake words like "Alexa" before successive voice commands. To turn it on, all you have to do is say "Alexa, enable Follow-Up Mode." All of these modes will certainly cut down on your room’s overall noise level.
