Not everyone is excited about Amazon’s “Drop In” intercom-like feature. But Amazon enables it by default—even if you choose “Later” at the splash screen. So here’s how to turn it off entirely.
Amazon’s recent Echo update builds on the new Echo calling/messaging platform they released earlier this year. It allows people from your contacts list (including other echos in your house) to “drop in” any time they want to chat with you—like an intercom.
Technically, this feature is opt-in—you have to approve certain contacts before they can drop in on you. But the feature itself is still enabled by default, which is strange (and annoying).
