It lets you switch seamlessly between English and Spanish!
With multilingual mode on US devices, Alexa can switch seamlessly between English and Spanish. Meaning, if you start speaking in English and switch to Spanish, she’ll reply in Spanish. Or if you start in Spanish and switch to English, she’ll reply in English.
It’s ideal for households where both languages are spoken. A child can speak to Alexa in English, Grandma can speak to Alexa in Spanish, and Alexa will understand them both and reply in kind.
It’s also great for kids who are studying Spanish in school, for Alexa users who want to brush up on Spanish, and for folks in ESL programs to practice their skills.
To activate, just say, “Alexa, speak English and Spanish.” If you want to switch back to just one default language, say “Alexa, speak English” or “Alexa, speak Spanish.”
Pro Tip #1: Multilingual mode with English and Spanish is only available in the US. But the feature has been rolled out in two other countries. In Canada, she does English and French, and in India she speaks English and Hindi.
