Have Samuel L. Jackson as the voice for Amazon Alexa
Samuel L. Jackson is now available as a Celebrity Voice for the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. Now, you'll hear Sam's voice when you ask about the weather, set a timer, ask to hear jokes, and more. You can also turn explicit language on or off easily.
This Alexa Skill makes using Alexa a lot more fun by replacing the well-known female voice of Alexa with the voice of famous actor and Hollywood icon, Samuel L. Jackson. You'll be able to use commands like "Alexa, ask Sam to wake me up at 7am" or "Alexa, ask Sam Jackson to sing happy birthday" and then hear Sam's voice complete the task in surprising and oftentimes hilarious ways.
It's impossible to think of Samuel L. Jackson without thinking of a few choice quotes which aren't very appropriate for younger ears. Luckily, this Alexa Skill has an Explicit Content filter that's easy to set up and switch on or off at any time. That way, you'll only hear the clean version of Sam. He's actually tired of these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane! It's age-appropriate!
You can ask Sam for the weather, to play your favorite songs, tell jokes, and more. You can even ask him more about himself. While his voice can help with a lot of things, you won't hear him while Shopping, using lists, reminders, or Skills.
The best part about this Alexa Skill is that it's compatible with pretty much every Echo device, so whether you have an Echo Dot, the new Echo Flex, or even an Echo with a screen like the Echo Show 5, you can activate Samuel L. Jackson's voice and start chatting with him in any room of your home.
