ATLANTA – Alexa gets a much bigger personality.
Amazon announced this week that the voices of Melissa McCarthy and Shaquille O’Neal are now available on Alexa devices.
McCarthy and O’Neal join Samuel L. Jackson as Alexa celebrities. And if this launch is something like Jackson’s, it’s going to be a big hit.
The day Amazon launched Jackson’s celebrity personality in 2019, it quickly became the best-selling digital purchase on Amazon.com, the company said in this week̵
“Customers have had a lot of fun with the Samuel L. Jackson experience on Alexa, and when customers love something, we look for ways to give them more of it,” said Alexa Experience & Echo Devices vice president Toni Reid.
“That’s right guys, get ready for the vocal styling of this nasal Midwestern gal!” In McCarthy. “I hope you all like all your dad’s jokes! Funny fact – if you hear a whistle of light, it’s my personal I took with me to the recording studio!”
“It’s on! Shaq is in the house to make the speakers bounce. Boomshakalaka!” In O’Neal. “I’m so excited to be a part of the Alexa experience.”
To get started, say “Alexa, introduce me to Shaq,” or “Alexa, introduce me to Melissa.”
You can say “Hi Melissa” or “Hi Shaq” to hear a joke, personal story or the latest weather forecast in your voice.
You can also ask O’Neal to show off his musical skills by saying “Hi Shaq, rap for me”, or ask Melissa to tell you a funny story by saying “Hi Melissa, tell me a story.”
Celebrity personalities cost $ 4.99 each.
