You can control your smart home devices using a new dashboard that's coming to all Echo Show devices, and manage them by group.

Amazon has rolled out a new security feature to give users greater control over their voice recordings.

Alexa is also getting new customisable nighttime and wake-up routines, the latter of which brightens the screen to mimic sunrise before your alarm sounds. But Amazon is also introducing new and simpler ways to delete your voice recordings on all Alexa-enabled devices as well. Now, users can just say, "Alexa, delete everything I said today", and Amazon will clear all of the audio requests made on that day.

Users can access the "Alexa, delete what I said today" command starting on Wednesday, while the second command that lets users delete what they just said will arrive in the USA in the coming weeks and in other countries next month.

Faced with shopper concerns about where the audio and video Alexa collects in homes around the world ends up, Amazon has also added a button that allows users to shut off the microphone and camera.

The device is available for pre-order starting Wednesday and will begin shipping in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, Canada, New Zealand and Australia next month and to India in July, Amazon said. Previously, the only way to remove recordings was a tool on the Alexa privacy website.

Considering the standard Echo Show costs $229, the $89 is price is somewhat insane in terms of affordability.

Secondly, Amazon is also making it easy for users to delete any voice recordings by using the voice commands, "Alexa, delete what I just said" or "Alexa, delete everything I said today".

"Customers love the screen complementing Alexa on the Echo Show". That means you'll have to go into your Alexa Privacy settings page, review your voice history, and flip the toggle that says "Enable deletion by voice".
