A new version of Alexa won't tell kids where babies come from, spill the beans about Santa, or explain some things they might have heard on the news _ like what Stormy Daniels does for a living.
Amazon recently updated its voice assistant with a feature that can make Alexa more kid-friendly. When the FreeTime feature is activated, Alexa answers certain questions differently. Asked where babies come from, for example, the kid version tells youngsters to ask a grown-up.
Amazon.com Inc. says it worked with child psychologists for some of Alexa's answers, and that the voice assistant is "always getting smarter" with updated answers.
FreeTime, which can be turned on in the Alexa app, is available on the Echo, Echo Plus and Echo Dot devices.
