Samuel L. Jackson Is the New Voice of Amazon's Alexa
Samuel L. Jackson Is the New Celebrity Voice For Amazon's Alexa, and Yes, He'll Curse at You
Samuel L. Jackson has one of the most recognizable voices in Hollywood, which means it's only fitting for him to now be lending his vocal talents to Amazon's Alexa. The online retailer announced on Sept. 25 that Jackson will be the first celebrity to use his voice for the popular virtual assistant software, and according to a product page, the Shaft actor will be able to tell you the weather, play music on command, tell jokes, set alarms, and more.
Users will have the option to choose between clean and explicit content when purchasing the feature, and I'm cackling just trying to imagine hearing Samuel L. Jackson's voice hurling profanities at me to get me to wake up in the morning. The feature launches later this year for a $1 introductory fee, though once the introductory period is over, the price will go up to $5. Watch the promotional video for it above.
