How to change your Amazon Alexa voice in seconds – including to Samuel L Jackson

NOT happy with your Amazon Alexa voice? You can change it in just a few seconds.

There are lots of different accents and voices available – and changing your Alexa’s vocals is free.

You can change the voice on your Alexa speaker

First, make sure your Alexa speaker is connected to the internet.

Then open the Alexa app on your phone – or install it, if you don’t have it already.

Tap the menu icon in the top left, then go into Settings.

Next, choose Device Settings and pause for a moment while your Alexa gadgets load up.

You can modify Alexa to speak in lots of different accents

Now you’ll need to choose the Alexa device for the voice change – you’ll need to do it for each speaker.

Once you’ve picked a device, go to the Language setting.

You’ll then be able to choose from a list of different English-language accents.

This includes UK, American, Canadian, Australian, French, Indian and more.

The Alexa will still speak in English, but she’ll talk with a different accent.

How to get Samuel L Jackson voice on Alexa

Back in September 2019, Amazon announced Samuel L Jackson as the first celebrity voice for Alexa.

“He can tell you jokes, let you know if it’s raining, set timers and alarms, play music and more – all with a bit of his own personality,” said Amazon.

Two versions of his voice are available – one explicit and one family-friendly.

There’s a $0.99 fee – buy it here.

To enable the feature, just say “Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L Jackson”.

Jackson won’t totally replace Alexa’s voice: you have to request him by saying “Alexa, ask Samuel L Jackson” and then follow up with a question.

He won’t be able to do everything Alexa normally does, but can still do plenty.
