Amazon Alexa Quits Her Day Job, Sorta
Ever get tired of the bad jokes that Alexa tells you when you ask for one?
Jimmy Fallon announced on his show last night that Amazon Alexa won’t be the only one you can hear bad jokes from. Now you will be able to hear his voice if you so choose for jokes. This is the first time a different voice has been allowed to be used on Amazon Smart Devices. While this is just limited to certain features, Amazon may be hinting at possible other celebrity voices down the future.
If you want to not hear Jimmy’s jokes, just tell Alexa that “I miss your jokes Alexa” and it will switch back to good ole Alexa’s voice. There has been no announcement stating how long this feature will last yet.
