A total of 48.6 million speakers in the United States has the second largest concentration of Spanish speakers in the world next to Mexico. Developers can already write the skills in Spanish for the Alexa Toolbar in Spain and Mexico. As Alexa supported devices gain popularity around the world, it seems natural that Amazon wants to deploy a multilingual client. For example, the Canadian developers already have the option of building skills in any Canadian French or English. In addition, Alexa skills are also available in Italian, German, Portuguese, Japanese and French.
Alexa Spanish will not only be available in the Echo devices; It will also roll out many devices from other manufacturers that rely on Alexa. Bose, Sony and Facebook plans to launch Alexa built in devices later this year that will also support Spanish. Philips, TP Link and Honeywell will also sell devices that support Spanish for US functions.
