Amazon Echo: You can now ask the most popular Bollywood celebrity – Amitabh Bachchan, to perform tasks like playing music, setting an alarm, providing weather updates, and even doing your grocery shopping for you. As part of its Alexa voice assistant, Amazon India has revealed that consumers will be able to hear the megastar’s famous baritone voice in the future.
Amitabh Bachchan on Alexa collaboration
“I am thrilled that my well-wishers will now be able to communicate with me through this new medium, and I am looking forward to hearing what they have to say about it,” Amitabh Bachchan remarked. Amazon had launched a collaboration with Amitabh Bachchan in September of last year, with the goal of creating a unique voice experience for his Indian followers.
Using Alexa, you may activate Amitabh Bachchan’s voice in the following ways:
For Alexa-enabled Echo devices, all you have to do is say “Alexa, introduce me to Amitabh Bachchan” to make the purchase and the new voice will be activated automatically. The initial fee for activating this feature is Rs 149 per year, which is payable in advance.
Android users may subscribe to the initial offer by pressing the microphone icon on the Amazon app’s home screen.
How to communicate with him on Amazon Echo
After you have made your money, you may communicate with Big B by just uttering “Amit Ji.” Under the terms of the membership, you can request that the actor inspire, entertain, and cheer you on a daily basis.
Other tasks that benefit from the voice experience include shopping, getting general information, routines, controlling smart homes, and learning new skills.
You might also inquire,
- “Amit Ji, what can you do?”
- “Amit ji, tell me something about your life”
- “Amit ji, recite your father’s poetry”
- “Amit ji, give me an inspirational quote”
- “Amit ji, give me a tongue twister”
- “Amit ji, how’s the weather?”
In addition to English and Hindi, voice help will be offered in both languages.
Aside from that, you will get access to stuff that Amitabh Bachchan has selected, such as anecdotes from his life, a collection of poetry written by his father, tongue twisters, motivational quotations, and so on.
Amazon will use neural speech technology to make Alexa sound precisely like Bachchan, no matter what question he is asking. This will eliminate the need for Amazon to record every word in Bachchan’s voice in a studio setting.
In order to change the language, either open the Alexa app and go to the device settings or just say “Alexa, speak in Hindi” into your Echo device. However, at the time of introduction, the smart speaker can only communicate in English using the Amazon app.
