Amazon Alexa Gets Better With Support For Hindi Language

Amazon Alexa

Amazon Alexa has been upgraded with support for Hindi. If you are currently working with Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, Amazon Echo Show, Echo Show 5 and other devices, you will be able to interact with the Hindi language.

The default language for those devices is English but you can change to Hindi by following few simple steps. You should tap the Amazon Alexa app on your smartphone and navigate to Settings.

You need to select Device Settings option and select your relevant device. If you had switched on the Echo Dot, you will view Online below the name of the device.

You will view the Device Settings page with several options. You should scroll down the page, locate Language option and select Hindi language. The final step is to select Hindi as the language. As of this writing, we are unable to view Hindi as an option although Amazon has announced its availability.

If you are currently working with Echo Show or Echo Show 5, you will be able to access Settings section by swiping down from the top of the display. You can change the language after that.

You can then interact with your Amazon device using the Hindi language. If you need to communicate with English, then you should follow the above steps and switch the language to English.

The language support is being rolled out in a phased manner and it will take few days for it to hit your apps. You should regularly check the Amazon Alexa app via Google Play Store for updates.
