Alexa to get the voice of Bollywood celebrities.

Alexa is one of the most popular digital voice assistants in the world, with direct competition to Google Alexa and Apple’s Siri. What differentiates it from others is the voice they use for the assistant. Since Amazon Alexa is very popular in India, they are planning to launch a separate version for the country, which will include the voice of a Bollywood celebrity as the Alexa virtual assistant. Using the voice of high profile Bollywood celebrities will be exclusive to the Indian market. 

It is rumored that starting from next year, Amazon will be augmenting the voice of Amitabh Bachan, who is one of the most popular and prolific actors in Indian cinema. Amazon did mention that the Indian market is of great importance when it comes to the growth of the company and India has a strong smartphone adoption and the growing purchasing power of its large population, which makes it the best place for the expansion of services. When it comes to the voice of Amitabh Bachan, the voice has been unique and popular over many years in India. Also, it is one voice that everyone can easily relate to and recognize immediately. 

The voice will be available as an extra purchase for exiting Amazon Alexa users and even new ones. There is no clarity yet on how much Amazon will be charging for this or will it be a part of the global Alexa product. However, it can be possible that Amazon might use the same technique in other parts of the world, where they can use the voice of popular celebrities from the world to mimic the voice of Alexa’s assistant.
