What is Super Alexa mode?

Super Alexa mode is a hidden function for Amazon echo devices that we can unlock by saying a special access code. If you find the correct code, your smart speaker will start a startup sequence to power up in a top secret mode. Therefore, it is not enough to say: “Alexa, activate Super Alexa mode”, to which the speaker will respond: “Super Alexa mode is super secret. I can only activate it if you tell me the secret code.

We already anticipate that this command will not activate any super power or new special ability for Alexa. It is more of a joke with which the smart speaker intends to make its users smile. It can also be considered a small tribute to the tricks of the old consoles, in which you had to enter a sequence of keys with the controller to activate some tricks within the games. That is the essence of the special access code to activate the Super Alexa mode.
