Alexa is down on Amazon Echo speakers

Amazon Alexa

While some Alexa services are still functioning through the phone app, users have been unable to use voice commands to access information or services. The intelligent personal assistant is now capable of deciphering single words and phrases, but with these improvements, Amazon hopes that Alexa will work seamlessly in conversations as a real-time translator. All good stuff, though one potentially game-changing skill that is coming to Alexa is real-time language translation.

According to a report by Yahoo Finance, Amazon is "seriously exploring" adding real-time translation to Alexa's suite of capabilities.

In other words, in the above example, Alexa would consider the Japanese's culture, which is more formal and conservative than American culture.

For example, if a user from the only capable of speaking English but he is at an event in Japan, Alexa will be able to help that user hold a conversation in Japanese.

Jordan Peele's directorial debut Get Out is one of the most talked about films of 2017, and blew audiences away last February. With the #MeToo Movement and the take-down of many of Tinsel Town's biggest players, the tides have changed in Hollywood.

Amazon appears to be ambitious when it comes to Alexa. Context and cultural awareness is something that's still missing.

Amazon does not have a page that tracks the status of consumer products and complaints. Google Pixel Buds has a similar feature and obviously work with a Google Assistant.

Amazon reportedly also wants Alexa to be capable of translating languages on-the-fly which means that if someone is talking to you in a local language that you do not understand, Amazon would translate it into your native language in real-time. Samsung's Bixby voice assistant on its Galaxy phones is already capable of basic translations, while Bragi also created wireless earphones previous year that featured real-time translation. It's not exactly the most popular today as it directly rivals the Google Assistant but it has a following and a market.
