Select Your Language
After choosing your device for configuration, navigate to Language and open it.
A drop-down menu appears, select your preferred language here.
Note: It isn’t every language that is compatible with Alexa. Things like music streaming and other skills may not be compatible with every choice.
When you’ve chosen your accent or language choice, the app will ask you to confirm your selection. Now, go ahead and ask Alexa a whole bunch of questions to test your device’s new language preferences.
