AVS for International

New language and regional services for building voice-forward products with Alexa built-in

Reach New Customers

AVS offers language and region-specific services to developers, enabling localized voice experiences. Language models and regional services are all built in the cloud, so developers don’t have to do any of the heavy lifting. Now customers can speak to Alexa and receive responses and content in their preferred language and region.

Supported regions include USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, Germany, Austria, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain, and Mexico. Alexa can interact with customers in US-English, UK-English, CA-English, English with an Australian or Indian accent, German, Japanese, French, Italian, ES-Spanish, and MX-Spanish.

How AVS Localization Works:

A customer located outside of the US

Emma is an Amazon customer located outside of the US. She recently purchased a device with Alexa built-in. During the out-of-the-box experience, Emma links to her Amazon account where she has set her current locale as her primary marketplace. The setting allows Emma to speak with Alexa in her local language, access region-specific and multi-language skills.

A customer located in the US

Ben is a German-speaking Amazon customer located in Seattle. He recently purchased a device with Alexa built-in. During the out-of-the-box experience, Ben links to his Amazon account, where he has set the U.S. as his primary marketplace. Wanting to speak with Alexa in German, Ben switches his primary language to German on the device. The setting allows Ben to speak German to Alexa, but still access local skills in the U.S.
