The new Amazon Alexa voice assistant feature now allows users to speak in different languages and the Echo device will translate it to English or any of the six desired languages. The new feature allows a total of six languages for Alexa to translate- English, Spanish, Brazilian, Portuguese, French, German, Hindi, Italian and Spanish. The feature currently works on Echo devices with locale language set to English. The English language is US English oriented.
For most Echo devices, the feature works through audio. For example you can say “Alexa translate to Hindi” or whatever language you support and the deice will translate for you. This feature is available for devices such as Echo Show 5 or older Echo show. The feature also provides an on-screen transcript for the translation.
This feature is also on-the-go. So if you are vising a new place and need help with translation, Alexa can assist you.
Google Assistant had introduced this concept a few years ago and Amazon is late to the game. However, with the amount of fame Alexa has acquired of the years, this feature is now becoming widespread and popular. Now you can even use and operate Alexa on your smart phones, making the device more efficient.
