Until now, Amazon Alexa users in India were able to interact with the voice assistant in English. However, starting today, Indian Alexa users can interact with the assistant in Hindi or Hinglish. All a user needs to say “Alexa, help me set up Hindi”or change the language in the Alexa app to their preferred Hindi or Hinglish language. Echo Show users can access the settings section from the device itself.
We briefly interacted with Alexa in Hindi and were impressed with its performance. However, the drawback with using Hindi or Hinglish is that you need to switch back and forth, if you want to use English again. Amazon clearly understands it, which is why they are working to activate multi-lingual support that will allow users to ask Alexa in their preferred language without having to change the language every time.
