How to Change Alexa’s Voice on an Echo

If you’re tired of Alexa’s default female voice, you’ve come to the right place. There are many voice selections to choose from, all carefully recorded for the best results. Read on the find out more.

How to Change Alexa’s Voice to Jarvis

Jarvis isn’t a real-life celebrity but the digital butler for Marvel’s Iron Man, Tony Stark. Depending on the timeline you want to go by, Jarvis is either a real-life butler or Tony’s AI assistant. The Alexa voice we’re going for will be the second choice.

Jarvis’ voice on Alexa will sound similar to his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As Alexa is available on multiple platforms, we’ll have steps for Amazon Echo and the Alexa app. We’ll start with the Echo and Echo Show:

  1. Say, “Alexa, introduce me to Jarvis.”
  2. If you haven’t purchased the voice pack, proceed with the purchase.
  3. Choose whether you want explicit content or not.
  4. Alexa should confirm the voice change.
  5. Test and see if the new voice pack is in effect.

You can still use the default Alexa voice by saying the wake word.

To make the change on mobile devices, follow these steps:

  1. Launch the Alexa app on your mobile device.
  2. Go to the “More” section.
  3. Select “Skills & Games” from the list.
  4. Search for Jarvis using the text box.
  5. Tap on “Enable To Use” once you purchase the voice pack.

The changes take effect regardless of the method you choose to enable it. Note that if you have multiple Alexa-enabled devices, you can only change the voice of one device at a time. The voice-activated method will also let you choose the device, no matter which one you ask.

Buying the voice pack is a one-time purchase unless there are devices that belong to someone else. In that case, that other device’s owner must repeat the instructions above before they can enjoy Jarvis’ or another celebrity’s voice.

How to Change Alexa’s Voice to Morgan Freeman

Apart from being an actor, Morgan Freeman is also a famous narrator who appeared in many science documentaries. His soothing and deep voice is a favorite worldwide, but the problem with Morgan’s voice is that it isn’t available on Alexa right now. At least, not officially.

While there are two free Skills for Alexa that claim to use Morgan Freeman’s voice, they’re not the real deal. Both are low-quality recordings and voice packs that you can barely hear. The reviews even say that it doesn’t sound like Morgan Freeman at all.

Until Amazon asks Morgan Freeman himself to sit down for a recording session, we won’t get an official Alexa Skill for him. Nevertheless, many users still request that Amazon do so, even after several years.

There are many other excellent voices out there for Alexa, however. From Borat to Baby Groot, the options range from funny to severe.

Set the Alarm for Eight A.M. Tomorrow

Alexa’s default voice is what many people use, but you can get some fantastic voice replacements for less than $5 per Skill. She’ll still surface when you ask for shopping lists, as these Skills can’t replace the default voice completely. Even so, you’ll find these new voices highly entertaining.
