Amazon has previously announced Alexa’s ability to recognize “custom sounds.” In the Alexa’s Monthly Roundup: November, they’ve added, “Water Running and Appliance Beeping as two new sounds that customers can use to kick off Alexa Routines. For example, set a Routine that enables Alexa to send you a notification when your washer beeps to signify that your laundry is done. Or, have Alexa remind you to turn off the sink if the kids accidentally left the water running after brushing their teeth.” Cool or creepy?
