Limitations When Changing Alexa to Speak Spanish?

It’s crucial to remember that whether your Amazon Alexa supports Spanish (Español) relies on the generation of your device and your geographical location.

Some features, such as capabilities, music, skills, and content, may not be completely available depending on Alexa’s compatibility for your chosen language.

Change Alexa’s Language With Voice Commands

Say the following command to change Alexa’s current language to Spanish using voice commands:

“Alexa, speak Spanish.”

To enable multi-language mode on your Alexa, which allows you to speak English and Alexa to reply in your preferred language (for example, Spanish), say the following voice command:

“Alexa, speak in English and Spanish.”

Say the following voice command to your Amazon Alexa to stop speaking in a different language:

Can Alexa Play Spanish Music and Radio Stations?

Alexa can play a variety of radio stations and music:

  1. Visit your Alexa app to access your Alexa Skills.
  2. Select “Skills and Games” from the drop-down menu.
  3. Go to “Categories” and then scroll down to “Music and Audio.”
  4. To find one of the tuners available for Alexa, scroll until you find one, or simply touch on the search box and type “radio.”
  5. Tap on the skill and install it to start listening to Alexa radio.

Say the following voice command to allow Alexa to play a radio station:

“Alexa, play {name of radio station} radio station”

Because Alexa lacks an FM tuner, you’ll need an online connection to listen to Alexa radio stations.


As you can see, Alexa does indeed support the Spanish language, and you can use that to your advantage in a variety of fun and useful ways.
