“This new feature is optional and can be very useful when talking to Alexa or touching the Echo Show screen is inconvenient. For example, when you want to deactivate a timer while you are cooking, but your hands are dirty and the music is blaring, you will only have to raise your hand to deactivate the alert”, they explained.
The function can be particularly useful in the case of people with some type of verbal or motor disabilitywhich for one reason or another cannot use the traditional methods to indicate commands to the Eco Show.
