The Amazon Alexa Answer Update feature will notify you when it learns the answer to a previously asked question. However, with the new Answer Update feature, Alexa will be able to answer those questions when it finally figures them out. Clever things, these AIs. Usually, when Alexa doesn't know the answer to a question, it replies with statements such as "I don't know, but I am always learning". But now, the virtual assistant can remember questions it can't answer, and get back to you later if it finds an appropriate response.

Amazon Alexa will send the notification on the device where you have enabled the feature, a TechCrunch report said.

Amazon Alexa doesn't have all the answers. Traditionally, when you ask Alexa a question it doesn't know the answer to, it will simply respond with a variant of "Sorry, I don't know that one", or "Hmm, I don't know that".

Amazon enthusiasts have spotted a new feature being tested in the wild that lets the interactive speaker thing get back to you at a later date, should it now not know the answer to one of your spoken queries. I was able to opt in to the feature with an Amazon Echo Spot here at the office by asking Alexa to "turn on Answer Update". The capability can also be enabled by saying, "Alexa, turn on Answer Update".
