The virtual assistant Alexa, available on Echo smart speakers, will have a memory function. As reported on the Amazon developer page, the assistant will be able to remember any arbitrary information and, at the user's request, voice it out later.
Alex is capable of storing data for as long as desired, said Ryuy Sarikaya, Amazon's director of machine learning. For example, the "concierge" could be asked to remember the birthdays of family members and friends, or asked to remember where the car was parked. For Echo owners, the memory feature will be available "soon."
In addition, in the next update, Alex will gain the ability to understand the context of the conversation, which will save the user from having to repeat the same questions. For example, if you first ask him: "What is the weather in San Francisco?", And then clarify: "And next week?", Alex will guess what it is about. Residents of the United States, Great Britain and Germany will be the first to open this function.

The essence of the request without clarifying questions has long been understood by the main rival Alex - "Assistant" on the Google Home columns. He had this feature back in 2016. If you first ask him about the player of the football club, and then ask him to give the number, then the assistant will guess that the subsequent questions are probably related to the previous ones.
