Amazon is one such name that people trust the service it provides. Recently, this brand came up with an amazing product named Alexa. There were several talks rolling out here and there regarding this device. Many came up with great reviews, whereas there were few reviews to contradict those. Let’s see how you can review and delete your Alexa history or how easy it is to do?
Amazon’s Alexa is a virtual digital assistant developed by Amazon. It is capable of voice interaction i.e., this virtual assistant is a female voice that talks to you in a conversational manner, ready to help you with the everyday stuffs as in setting timers, making to-do lists, streaming podcasts, playing audio books, and providing weather, traffic, sports, and other real-time information, such as news and also buying items off Amazon’s website among the other things.
Alexa also has the capability of controlling several smart devices by using itself as a home automation system. Being a user you can extend the capabilities of Alexa by installing “skills”.
But, as this Amazon’s intelligent home assistant has made life much simpler. Like almost every technical device, it does have a darker side too.
The fact that Alexa does record everything you say, what if it records your conversation and send it to some random contact? Or what if a message is okay’d accidentally by you which actually should not be processed further? Or when you want to review what you’ve asked Alexa and maybe delete some of the more embarrassing inquiries
So, to overcome this darker side, here’s how you can delete review and delete your Alexa history
- Step 1
In the beginning, open the Alexa app and select the hamburger menu that you will get to see on the top left.
- Step 2
Now, you need to scroll down and select settings.
- Step 3
Now, when you select the “settings” section, you will get a list where you have to scroll down and select “History”.
Now here you will see a list of everything you’ve asked Alexa, plus recording of those requests. It’ll all be here. Just tap on any recording you’d like to review.
In case you thought to delete a recording, just play it first. Then tap “delete Voice Recordings”. Remember there will be no “do you really want to delete this?” warning. As soon as you type, it’s gone.
