Amazon today announced that its digital assistant Alexa will soon support Spanish language in the US. Amazon is now inviting developers to start building skills for Spanish-speaking customers in the US using the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) with the new Spanish for US voice model. Amazon will publish these new Spanish language skills so that Alexa Preview program customers can try them out before it becomes available to the general public.
Amazon also mentioned that later this year, Bose, Facebook, and Sony will bring Alexa Built-in devices and Philips, TP Link, and Honeywell Home will bring Works with Alexa devices that support Spanish in the US. And of course, Echo family of devices will also support Spanish language later this year.
