When you ask Alexa for the weather, the voice assistant’s standard response is to give you the sunniness, current temperature, high temperature, and low temperature. If that’s too much info and you just want to know the day’s high or low temperature, it’s now possible to get just that, as discovered by Reddit user derallo. If you ask “Alexa, what’s the high/low today?,” you’ll now just be told, “Today, expect a high/low of [##] degrees fahrenheit/celsius.” If you want just the current temperature and ask “Alexa, what is the temperature?” you still also get told the day’s high, unfortunately. If all you want is the current temperature, you can use the Alexa Skill Just The Temperature, which lets you say “Alexa, just the temperature” and get back “It’s [##] degrees” as a response. Update: As noted in the comments, it seems like this change isn’t available to everyone yet.
This did not work for me. I still get the long winded answer for “Alexa, what’s the high/low today?”.
Thanks for letting me know. I guess support is still rolling out to devices. It did work for me.
Works for me in english and spanish. Even it give me the high/low for entire week.
“Alexa, Just the temperature”, this gets me the current temp and the expected high for the day. That’s it. “Alexa, Hi/Lo”, only results in the standard full-day forecast.
I’ve been able to do this for months, maybe even over a year. Maybe it was new with the Echo 4.
That could be. Because it will not work for me and I have an echo 1
