Amazon's Alexa Now Has Support For Hindi And Hinglish

Alexa has been operating in India for nearly two years, but it was not until recently that it started to have support for Hindi and Hinglish

Alexa, Amazon’s AI-enabled voice assistant, has been operating in India in nearly two years but it was not until recently that it started to supoort the country’s most common language, Hindi. The company has given the ability to understand and converse Hindi and even Hinglish to the voice assistant.

New Indian users of Alexa can have Hindi as the default language. All they need to do is to say "Alexa, help me set up Hindi." If you have already had an Echo device, head to the Alexa app, access the language options, and switch to Hindi.

For now, the developers are working on Hindi flavor. According to Amazon, Alexa now has around 500 skills from more than 30 third-party brands.

Alexa is in a wide range of products such as Bose smart speakers, which got Hindi support update yesterday. Some other brands will have Amazon’s voice assistant, including Boat, Motorola, Fingers, iBall, Dish, MyBox, Sony, and Portronics. They will soon have Hindi support on their devices.
