Alexa will speak Spanish in the US later this year

Americans will soon be able to speak to Alexa in Spanish. Amazon launched a new voice model on Monday that will let developers build skills for Spanish-speaking users. The addition to the Alexa Skills Kit for developers comes months before Amazon plans on bringing full Spanish-language support to all Alexa devices later this year.

With a total of 48.6 million speakers, the US has the second largest concentration of Spanish speakers in the world next to Mexico. Developers like MMS Consulting can already write skills in Spanish for Alexa devices. As Alexa-supported devices gain popularity around the world, it seems natural that Amazon will wish to accommodate multilingual customers. In addition, Alexa skills are also available in French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Japanese and French.

Alexa in Spanish won’t just be available in Echo devices; it will also roll out to many third-party devices that rely on Alexa. Bose, Sony and Facebook are planning to launch Alexa-built in devices later this year that will also support Spanish. Philips, TP Link and Honeywell will also sell connected devices that support the Spanish for US feature.

Alexa for Business

Alexa provides a natural and intuitive way for people to interact with the technology they use every day. Alexa Skills create personalized experiences and allow Alexa to do more, and there are already tens of thousands of skills available for people to use today. Alexa for Business gives you the tools you need to manage Alexa devices at work, enroll your users, and assign skills at scale. You can build your own custom voice skills using the Alexa Skills Kit and the Alexa for Business APIs, and you can make these available as private skills for your organization.

Alexa for Business lets you use shared Alexa devices in common areas around your workplace, and personal Alexa devices for your users in their personal spaces at work, like at their desks. Shared devices can be used by anyone, they are not associated with a personal Alexa account, and no one can use their personal skills with these devices. Personal Alexa devices are associated with users, who connect the Alexa device to their personal Alexa account, and then enroll their personal Alexa account with your Alexa for Business account. This lets them use the Alexa features and skills they’ve already enabled for personal use, and the skills they need for work. They can access these skills on any of the devices associated with their personal Alexa account.
