Queen Elizabeth Will Deliver Her Christmas Day Message Through Alexa
You can now ask Alexa to play Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas Day message and you do not need to live in the U.K to listen to that. Starting December 25, the phrase ‘Alexa, play the Queen’s Christmas Day message’ will begin on all the devices.
One good news is that this feature will not be available only in the United Kingdom but also in other parts of the world including the US, Canada, Australia and India. The users in India will be able to listen to the address at 8:30 PM on Christmas. All you need to do is say the phrase and you will be able to listen to Queen’s Christmas Day message.
Amazon seems to think it might be: “After a challenging year, millions of people from across the Commonwealth will be eagerly awaiting Her Majesty the Queen’s message on Christmas Day. By creating this world-first innovation, just as we did in 2012 with the release of the Queen’s Christmas speech on Kindle, we hope that even more people will be able to enjoy the uplifting words of Her Majesty,” reads a statement from Eric King, director of Amazon Alexa Europe.
According to HT Tech, if you don’t own an Echo speaker, you will be able to listen to the Queen’s speech in using the Google Home smart speakers at the same time by saying, “Hey Google, play BBC Radio 4.”
