Amazon has now rolled out its “Hunches” feature for Alexa.
Hunches is a way for Alexa to be more useful for smart home devices. If Alexa detects that a connected smart home device isn’t in a state you prefer, Alexa lets you know and offers to fix it. For example, if you say “Good night” and you’ve forgotten to turn off a light, Alexa alerts you and offers to turn it off.
Hunches is enabled by default. If you don’t want to use it, you can disable it in the mobile app (it’s not currently available to manage in the Alexa web app).
To turn it on or off:
- Go to the Settings menu and select Settings.
- Select Hunches.
- Use the toggle to turn Hunches on or off.
