We will explain the Super Alexa Mode and how you can “activate” it, although we already warned you that it is merely a humorous command that will not serve you much more than to feel like a geeky gamer. You’ll be able to use it anywhere you interact with Alexa, from the Echo speakers to the mobile app.
We could say that this super mode was a tribute to the cheats of the consoles of yesteryear when you had to enter a sequence of keys with the controller to activate the cheats in some of the games. You have to say the same thing for Alexa to give you a special response.
What is Super Alexa mode?
Super Alexa mode is one of Amazon’s virtual assistant easter eggs. Alexa has several “hidden” commands with special tricks for those who discover them. All you have to do is say the corresponding voice command, and Alexa will give you a special response telling you that you have activated this mode.
One of the peculiarities of this Super Alexa mode is that the virtual assistant recognizes when you are trying to invoke it, and it will know if you are missing something in the voice command, warning you that you have to enter it completely to activate the mode.
What is the Super Alexa mode for?
The Super Alexa mode is useless; it’s just a joke, a nod to the gaming community. Alexa will tell you that she has activated it, but it doesn’t do anything. Come on; you won’t have to deactivate it once you invoke it. It’s just a joke where you give a special command to the wizard, and it gives you a custom response but nothing more.
How to activate Super Alexa mode
To activate Super Alexa mode, you have to approach an Amazon device or open the Alexa mobile app, which is available for Android on Google Play and iOS on the App Store. Once you open the app or approach your device with Alexa, you have to say the following command that we give you:
- Alexa, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start.
You must pronounce the letters, Be and A and start because you can speak English. When you enter this command, Alexa will reply:
- Din, din, din, the code is exact, downloading updates.
If you fail or don’t say it fast enough, Alexa will tell you that the code is super secret and to try again. And there you go, this is the whole easter egg. It can work quite well in gatherings of friends when you have several gamers in the room.
