Why Is Alexa Green?
- Randall Mullins
What does the green light mean? – Whether you’re using an Echo speaker with an LED light ring located on either the top or bottom of the device or an Echo Show smart display with a light bar at the bottom of the touchscreen, a green light on your Echo hardware means that you have an incoming call.

Is someone spying on my Alexa?
Does Alexa record everything? – No, Alexa does not record all your conversations — just some of them. According to Amazon, Alexa records what you say only after the Echo or Alexa-enabled device detects your wake word, Then — or after you press your device’s action button — Alexa starts recording your request, sending it up to Amazon’s cloud. After hearing its wake word, Alexa starts recording and sends the audio to the cloud. In the cloud, powerful algorithms analyze the audio, trigger the correct action, and store it in your account records. Amazon also says that once your audio snippet reaches its cloud, it goes through a “cloud verification” process to make sure you said the wake word and that Alexa was activated properly.
If Alexa doesn’t confirm the wake word in the snippet, it stops recording your conversation and ends the audio stream. Alexa will fulfill your request only after it has confirmed the wake word was actually spoken. Then, it will try to determine when you’re done with a request and immediately stop recording.
If you’re worried that Amazon Echo or Amazon Echo Dot is spying on you without your permission, it’s easy to tell when the device is listening. Just look for a circular blue LED light on the device or listen for the tone that sounds when Alexa wakes up.
What does it mean when Alexa is glowing?

How do I know if Alexa is watching me?
You’ll always be able to tell when Alexa is listening to your request because a light indicator will appear on your Echo device or an audible tone will sound. Think of the ‘On the Air’ signs that light up in television studios during a broadcast.

What is Alexa’s secret code?
How to Access Super Alexa Mode? – For activating Super Alexa Mode, you have got to use the voice commands, “Alexa, up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start.” Remember that Alexa will respond only to the precise same code. The instant Alexa hears this command; her response will go like this: “Super Alexa mode activated.
Starting Reactors, online. Enabling advanced systems, online. Raising dongers. Error. Dongers missing. Aborting.” Then it goes quiet. The response means Super Alexa Mode cannot fully activate unless it finds the missing dongers, which is additionally an inside joke for gamers. Note: The voice command refers to the order in which you must press the buttons on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller to activate the cheat code in certain video games.
However, Alexa’s response does not point to any specific game or meme.
