Alexa blows out its three candles in France
Arrival in France on June 13, 2018, Alexa is actually older since it was unveiled on November 6, 2014 in Seattle, United States. In front of an audience of guests, Amazon presented to our amazed eyes the first generation of the connected speaker Amazon Echo and invited the lucky first to participate in a beta phase.
An experience in which we also had the chance to participate 3 years later in order to prepare Alexa to speak French and which allows us, since, to note the growing attachment of the French for the vocal assistant ofAmazon.
It must be said that our assistant helps us and accompanies us on a daily basis, by controlling our home automation of course, but also by regularly surprising us with small crisp sentences or experiences like the one proposed this week for his birthday.
Gianmaria Visconti, Amazon Alexa Country Manager, specifies that “During the first three years since arriving in France, the number of customers actively using Alexa has grown considerably, 50% per year, and, in 2021 alone, 2,4 billion interactions were carried out between French users and Alexa. Some of these interactions show how the voice assistant Alexa came into our homes and became a real member of the family. This is evident when we see that users ofAlexa have said 4,5 million times "I love you" à Alexa, just in the last year ”.
20 gift certificates Amazon to win
In order to encourage you to always discover better Alexa and to wish him a very happy birthday, Amazon involves 20 gift vouchers in the amount of 20 € to be used on your purchases on Amazon.com.
