It is  about this tine. Amazon customers in the U.S. are now able to speak Spanish to Alexa. Using the Alexa app, we can turn Echo and Alexa Built-In speakers to Spanish or use multilingual mode.

This feature enables Alexa to respond in either English or Spanish, depending on the language in which the question was asked.

Also supporting a new Spanish voice are Echo and Alexa Built-In devices, and developers can build new skills for Spanish speaking users.

U.S. users with Amazon Music can also query Alexa about new playlists of Latin music in Spanish.

We knew that these changes were coming, but it doesn't make them any less significant.

While, both Google Assistant and Siri speak Spanish (and several other languages), Amazon's ability to catch up is quite significant.
