HP's new 'all-in-one' PC to come pre-installed with Alexa

Amazon Echo 2nd Gen

For instance, if coders were to create interactive audio stories for Alexa, they could use the new voices to represent different characters, Amazon said.

The voices are only available in U.S. English, and include a mix of both male and female, according to Amazon Polly's website.

While no auto maker is offering the fully integrated experience yet, Amazon is promising much the same - the ability to do searches, navigation, home automation, check your calendar and more. It will give skills more varied personalities, which should lead to a richer experience - or at least that's the idea. "It's as easy as that".

Creating engaging skills can pay off: Developers can make money through Alexa skills using in-skill purchasing or Amazon Pay for Alexa Skills, the post noted. "You can even use an Amazon Polly voice for every utterance in your skill if you like". We'll select a subset of the skills that apply, and will provide more information to those selected. The point of having access to multiple Alexa voices is so developers can build skills (apps) in which users interact with a variety of voices instead of just one.

Amazon now has a number of different voices with different dialects and accents developers can now bundle into their skills, according to the company's website.
