Language options for Amazon Echo
Almost two years after Amazon introduced its Alexa voice assistant in India, the Seattle-based company has added the much-needed support for Hindi language as well as ‘Hinglish’ to the voice assistant. The Amazon Echo lineup users in the country will be able to set up Hindi as their default language. Amazon says Alexa can now understand the customers speaking completely in Hindi or ‘Hinglish’, in various contexts as well as varied dialects and accents.
started with Hindi, just ask, "Alexa, help me set up Hindi."
Existing Echo owners in India can change their device language to Hindi via language options inside the device settings on the Alexa app. Echo Show users can access the settings section to change the language by swiping down from the top of the screen.
Alexa can now understand commands such as "Bollywood ke latest
ganesunao", "cricket score batao",
"sherkiaawaazsunao", or "Alexa, apnebaaremeibatao".
