Before the year 2019 rounds up, Alexa add another amazing feature of Samuel L. Jackson’s voice to make it more unique and refine.
The prolific actor is the latest celebrity to lend his distinct vocal cord to a voice-enabled platform and more high profile voices are reportedly to come from Amazon’s Alexa.
Users who want to hear Jackson’s voice should ask Alexa to introduce them to the prolific actor and confirm the purchase. And given Jackson’s salty language which is widely known, you must then also enable or disable explicit language.
The use of famous voices as a digital assistant is certainly nothing new. Amazon has added numbers of celebrities such as Cameo by Cardi B, Gordon Ramsey, Rebel Wilson, and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
In April, Google Assistant added singer John Legend’s voice as a Cameo in English for a limited time in the U.S.A. Users then enable the legend functionality by saying “Hey Google, talk like a legend”
So, therefore, using celebrity voice on Amazon Alexa device is no longer a new thing but it is certainly a great development by the Amazon team.
