In September, Amazon launched its Prime membership program in Brazil, including its music-streaming services. Less than a month later, that launch has been followed by the debut of Amazon’s Echo smart speakers in Brazil, along with the Alexa voice-assistant’s new ability to speak and understand Brazilian Portugese language.
“Customers across Brazil will be able to ask for their favorite music, control their smart home, and enjoy skills from hundreds of customer-favourite Brazilian brands,” announced Amazon Alexa VP Toni Reid.
For now, the Echos available in Brazil are the Echo Dot and Echo Show 5, with the regular Echo to follow in November. The announcement also included an old stat: “Over 100 million Alexa devices have been sold globally”, which was first announced by Amazon in January.
