Echo Show Update for Notes and Sticky Notes Alexa

The sticky notes Alexa are very practical elements that arrived with Echo Show 15. Capable of displaying widgets, the latest addition to the range benefits from a whole new customizable interface. Unfortunately, if it were possible to display these notes saying " Alexa, what are my grades on older generations, these were of little interest since they were not displayed on their own. But the whole point of a Post-it is precisely that our eyes rest on it without us having to ask. That is why Amazon updated our old devices to provide them with this functionality.

Be careful, don't get carried away too quickly, it is not the same interface as on Echo Show 15. However, a new screen now displays the notes in rotation and we must admit that it is rather practical. Only problem, you will no longer have an excuse if you forget something!

Fascinated by Alexa since the day I received it in beta test, I gradually became passionate about the subject, before deciding to go further by creating a site with Jean-Christophe. An activity that allows me to quench my thirst for new technologies and share my discoveries about the nicest of communities: Les Alexiens.
