Imagine having Samuel L. Jackson at your beck and call to search the internet, answer questions, stream music, and make commands to. Soon you will able to do just that… or something like that.
Amazon just revealed a list of updates to Alexa, their virtual assistant, and one feature will be the addition of Samuel L. Jackson’s voice. Mashable explains that the Samuel L. Jackson feature will be available later this year, and anyone who buys it before the year is up will get it for $0.99.
They explain, “Amazon is using neural text-to-speech technology to replicate the iconic actor’s voice, instead of having him record canned lines to repeat ad nauseam.”
Of course, there will be both an explicit and non-explicit version.
