Samuel L Jackson to Voice Amazon’s Alexa
It’s FINALLY LIVE!!!! To get started, just say, “Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson!
After purchasing, try saying:
“Alexa, ask Samuel L. Jackson where he is from.”
“Alexa, ask Sam to wake me up at 7am.”
“Alexa, ask Sam Jackson to sing happy birthday.”
In case you don’t know, the Hollywood star is the first celebrity voice to be rolled out on Alexa, in a feature that will be made available to users later this year for a fee. For 99 cents (intro rate – will be $4.99 later), you can hear the Hollywood star read you the news, give you a weather report and even tell jokes. While the Alexa feature promises to make liberal use of Jackson’s reputation for colorful language, users will have the capacity to turn swearing on and off.
Amazon suggested on Wednesday that more celebrity voices will be added in 2020. Check out the current Alexa able devices…
The feature was one of a number of updates to Alexa announced at Amazon’s annual hardware exhibition in Seattle on Wednesday. Amazon also revealed new Alexa-powered devices during the Wednesday event, including…
- Echo Frames – a pair of titanium-framed glasses that vibrate to provide notifications, and have built-in microphones and speakers to use Alexa, but no display
- Echo Buds – a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds that feature noise-reduction tech, giving them an edge over Apple’s Airpods, and which can activate the firm’s virtual assistant by voice alone, unlike other Alexa-enabled headphones
- Echo Loop – a ring that features two microphones and a “tap-on” button, which allows owners to record messages and send them to an Echo smart speaker
- Fetch – a pet tracker designed to attach to a dog collar
Other updates included new privacy options such as auto-deletion of voice recordings, and new commands that force the program to reveal the data it has collected.
We will let you know when it is available. You will want to gran this at the intro rate of only $0.99. It will be $4.99 normally!
