Amazon Alexa developers get eight new voices

Amazon has started rolling out an app update that will bring Alexa, the voice assistant that powers Amazon's smart speakers, to the Android platform.

They can even ditch Alexa' voice altogether and use Polly's voices for every utterance in their skills.

Those of you who really want Alexa to have different voices will be happy with this latest development. For example, you can give a different voice to each character in adventure stories and games.

Media reports say the rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, lost his key and the guard would not let him into the community. The rapper contacted his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle , who confirmed that her husband should be allowed inside the community.

Polly's voices are far from flawless, of course, but as they see more use, that could change.

Along with HP, Acer and Asus debuted personal computers that are created to work with Alexa during the International Consumer Electronics Show 2018 (CES) that was held earlier this year in Las Vegas as part of a push by Amazon to spread its voice assistant to more third-party devices. This allows developers to create speech-enabled products, and apps that talk to users.
