Alexa...stop saying OK. Learn how to turn on Alexa Brief Mode to stop Alexa from responding to every command. Brief Mode is very handy when you use Alexa in a smart home.
Does Alexa talk too much? Just turn on Alexa Brief Mode and enjoy the silence. Brief Mode is a simple setting that makes Alexa speak less and stop saying OK after commands.
If you control smart home devices with Alexa, then enabling Brief Mode is a must. For example, if you say “Alexa, turn on the lights” then Alexa will say OK and then turn on the lights. If Brief Mode is enabled, then Alexa will just beep and turn on the lights.
Here is the description you will find in the Alexa app for Brief Mode.
When enabled, Alexa speaks less and for some simple messages, plays a short sound instead of a voice response.
When you turn on Brief Mode, it is applied to all Alexa devices on your account. You can not turn it on for each device individually.
You can turn on Brief Mode in the Alexa app on your phone or from https://alexa.amazon.com. Just following these simple steps in the app.
Open the “Hamburger” Menu in the top corner of the Alexa App and select Settings.
Select Alexa Account in the settings menu.
Select Alexa Voice Responses in the Alexa Account settings menu.
Toggle the Brief Mode button to the on position.
