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.
