First announced in September, Amazon’s celebrity voice program for Alexa devices is now available, and the first celebrity voice you can download is Samuel L. Jackson. And yes, he curses! (If you want him to.)
He’s in the cloud baby! Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson is here to add some fun to your Alexa experience. Just ask and Sam will give you the weather, play your favorite music, tell jokes, and more.
To get started, just say, “Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson.” Then, choose whether you’d like Sam to use explicit language or not. If you change your mind later, simply go to the settings menu of the Alexa app to toggle between clean and explicit content.
After purchasing, try saying:
“Alexa, ask Samuel L. Jackson where he is from.”
“Alexa, ask Sam to wake me up at 7am.”
“Alexa, ask Sam Jackson to sing happy birthday.”
Although he can do a lot, Sam won’t be able to help with Shopping, lists, reminders or Skills.
Here is a quick promotional video:
Yes, the introductory price is only 99 cents! It will later go up to $4.99, which is still a decent price to have the legendary Samuel L. Jackson curse you out while delivering the weather report every day!
If you don’t have an Alexa device, Amazon is offering the Alexa Dot (3rd generation), usually $25, for only 99 cents with a one-month subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited. That’s a total of $8.98 for Prime customers or $10.98 for non-members. Be careful, the Amazon Music subscription is auto-renewing so make sure to cancel it if you don’t want to keep it. You can take advantage of this deal here.
If you already have an Alexa device, you can download the Samuel L. Jackson voice package here, or you can just say “Alexa, introduce me to Samuel L. Jackson.”
Will you be making this an early Christmas gift for yourself?
