Super Alexa, mother, soccer, Madrid… all the special modes

Alexa is able to do dozens of things, as we have already mentioned in the introduction. Some are as amazing as controlling our Smart TV with Alexa, but we can go a step further to wow our friends and family. The smart speaker offers some hidden functions that not all users know about and, although they are not really useful for much, they can make us have a good time. In this case, we focus on knowing and learning how the Super Alexa secret mode is activated, in addition to other special modes.

Alexa, what modes do you have?

All users who are used to using voice commands with Amazon’s smart assistant are usually related to asking Alexa for a specific song, turning the lights on and off in our house or asking her to remind us of something, among many other functions.

If you are looking for all the things Alexa can do for you, you can ask her directly “Alexa, what can you do? Or in the event that you want to discover all the modes available in Alexa, you can ask “Alexa, what modes do you have? Amazon’s intelligent voice assistant has several hidden modes that we can access through a key question. Here are some of the best Alexa modes.

What is it and how to activate the Super Alexa mode?

Basically, Super Alexa mode is a hidden feature of Echo devices from Amazon that we can activate easily. To do this, we must know a special code. If we say it right, the mode will activate and we will laugh for a while. Despite what it may seem, it is only anecdotal and does not offer any real functionality or allow access to any special options.

It will suffice to say: “Alexa, turn on Super Alexa mode”, to which the speaker will reply: “The Super Alexa mode is super secret. I will only be able to activate it if you tell me the secret code”. As we have already said, it will not activate any special function, but it is a joke with which Amazon intends to make us smile. Some consider that it may be a nod to those old consoles in which we could activate cheats by following a combination of buttons.

To activate the super Alexa mode, you have to approach the Alexa speaker or open the Alexa application on your mobile, which is for iPhone and Android, and say the following words:

“Alexa, up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start.”

In case of doing it correctly, Alexa will answer us: “Din din din, the code is exact, downloading updates”. If we don’t say it right or are too slow, Alexa will tell us that it is a super secret code and that we must repeat it. This is just one of the “secret” modes of Amazon smart speakers, do you know any more?
