Children can now safely ask Alexa questions

Now, parents don't have to fear certain answers when children ask Amazon's Alexa due to new parental controls available today.

Amazon starts shipping new Echo Dot Kids Edition including FreeTime parental control features.

FreeTime on Alexa rolls out to existing Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Plus owners via a free, over-the-air software update.

The High Tech Texan, Michael Garfield said you don't have to buy a new device.

“It’s an automatic update. You don’t need to buy anything. But, it’s just another level that really it’s smart for Amazon because they’re trying to let kids interact with this by giving the parents some sort of control over what they can and can’t do,” said Garfield.

Parents can set bedtime limits and children can ask Alexa educational questions.

 “These include songs with bad lyrics and different functions around the house. You can turn off voice purchasing for example, so they can’t Amazon music,” said Garfield.
