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.
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.
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.
