Amazon adds UK English, German on Alexa for developers

Tuesday 7 February 2017 | 16:25 CET | News
Amazon announced developer support for voice commands in UK English and German over its Alexa digital assistant platform. This means developers in the UK and Germany can add Alexa voice commands in the local language to their products. Logitech is among the first to use the new feature. The company announced that its ZeroTouch car phone holder and voice-command mobile application will integrate Amazon Alexa, adding new hands-free voice capabilities and services to the car. The enhanced ZeroTouch product is available in the US and UK, with German availability in the coming weeks.
