What Does The Yellow Light Mean On Alexa?

Yellow. What it means: A slow yellow burst, every few seconds, means that Alexa has a message or notification, or there’s a reminder you missed.
Why does my Alexa have a solid yellow ring?
Pulsing yellow light – Ben Patterson/Foundry Let’s start with the light that confused me the most when I got my first Echo (the ever-popular Echo Dot). Generally accompanied by a cheerful “bum, bum!” alert tone, the flashing yellow light lets you know when Alexa has a notification for you, or if you missed a reminder.
- One of the most common times you’ll see the yellow light is when Alexa wants to tell you that a package from Amazon has been delivered, or when Amazon is about to ship a “Subscribe & save” item.
- Just say “Alexa, tell me my notifications” to hear your Alexa alerts, and the yellow light will disappear once Alexa has read them to you.
If you want to delete all your notifications without hearing them, just say, “Alexa, delete all my notifications.”

Why do yellow lights exist?
The Hidden Genius and Influence of the Traffic Light See it sway: three-eyed blind bat hanging from a wire. Or perhaps there: perched atop a pole, lights moving from top to bottom-green yellow red green yellow red-in its unvarying sequence. Two hundred years ago, it would have been a wonder, something on display at the Great Exhibition of 1851, gawked at by Victorians. Today it’s seen but unconsidered, passed under a dozen times a day by most of us, influencing how we move, shaping our cities, warping how we travel, and occasionally, inadvertently, helping to kill us. Consider the traffic light. Is there anything lonelier than a solitary traffic light blinking to an empty road? It’s an establishing shot that screams: desolation. It plays on our fear that the mechanical world doesn’t care about us, and will exist long after we’re gone. The traffic light doesn’t need people. And yet. >Here’s the thing: traffic lights don’t really do anything. They don’t-can’t-physically stop you. They don’t engage a barrier to prevent cars from going through the intersection, and lower that barrier when it’s time to drive. They won’t stop you from plowing into a hapless pedestrian at the intersection. No, they’re only a mechanical prop, a signifier of a social contract we’ve agreed to (and have written into law). They are a means of behavior change, and we (mostly) obey. #### Dan Saffer ##### About A Creative Director at (http://smartdesignworldwide.com/), Dan leads teams in creating new interaction paradigms across a wide range of products, spanning both digital and physical.

Traffic lights are used by billions daily, even by the illiterate and unschooled. The lights are designed to be seen even in broad daylight, sometimes by using cap visors or, more recently, bright LEDs to make them visible. They can be aimed on many lanes of traffic or just one, with special like those used in lighthouses to focus the light on an intended viewing area and obscure it from other lanes of traffic. The traffic light has evolved from dumb electro-mechanical objects to smarter, networked ones, able to adapt to the environment in sophisticated ways. The Genius of the Yellow Light Originally, there were no traffic lights. For almost forty years we drove cars without them—not to mention the several millennia we rode horses sans lights, or any intersection control at all.When the street light was invented by, they had no yellow lights, only green and red, with a buzzer to let drivers know the light was about to change. It didn’t take long to realize that this probably wasn’t the best solution, and thus the yellow light was born. Red, at least in the West, has been the color of danger since at least the Romans. Green as “go” came from railroad signals, color-blind people be damned. But yellow is the easiest color to see. It’s the first color your eye can detect, because physics: more light is reflected from bright colors and thus with yellow, eyes become more stimulated. The yellow light is by far the most sophisticated and cognitively challenging part of any traffic light. Red and green lights have had to consider timing, namely: how long should one side of the intersection remain green, the other red. This creates the “capacity” of a signal: how many vehicles can move through on a single change of the light. This, in turn, creates (or disrupts) flow throughout the entire traffic grid of a city. Longer green lights mean more vehicles move through the intersection. If one light is letting too many cars through, the next light might have traffic jams as cars pile up. This is how traffic can be (partially) controlled: by adjusting the capacity of traffic lights, letting more or less traffic pass through. >Sometimes it really would be more dangerous to stop than to run the yellow light. The yellow light doesn’t really control capacity, but instead creates an ephemeral Zone of Decision around the intersection. When a light turns yellow, nearby drivers have a choice to make, quickly: do I speed up and drive through the yellow light, or do I slow down and stop? Driving instructors will of course always tell you that a yellow light means slow down and prepare to stop, but on the street, that’s not always how it works. Sometimes it really would be more dangerous to stop than to run the yellow. And sometimes those driving instructors are right: running the yellow is a terrible, dangerous idea. How do you know which is which? Yellow lights generally last three to five seconds. Which means, when one appears, in the space of about a second, you’ve got to do a few intense calculations: how far you are away from the intersection, how fast you’re going, how clear the intersection is, and, increasingly, is there a camera that will take a picture of me running a red light if I time this wrong? This moment is the Zone of Decision. Guess wrong, and cars crash and people can get hurt or die, as thousands do every year. : The Hidden Genius and Influence of the Traffic Light
