The voice interaction with our various assistants just got a little better. I’d love to be able to name my Siri to whatever wake name that I prefer. I’d love a wider range of voices too. Amazon just expanded both, and while the new name, Ziggy is quirky, the chance of a home with Alexa and Ziggy living in it… quite low. The new voice, a rich baritone which would sound great on the local news, is my preferred Amazon device voice now. How do you change either? Speaking to your device with the actual name, “[device], change your voice”… “[device], change your wake word to Ziggy”.

How to Change Amazon Alexa’s voice to Ziggy? After the initial announcement comes availability.
