A new feature called hunches is a special addition to Alexa. This feature helps to combine 3 to 4 commands into a single one. For example, if you have interlinked shutting of your door and switching off the lights with good night, then whenever you say goodnight to Alexa, it will check whether all lights in the room are switched off or not and also check whether the main door is closed or not.

This reduces our work effect of not repeating the same commands daily.
