Starting October 8, we are expanding Alexa Voice Service capabilities by bringing the Portuguese language to customers across Brazil. Customers can ask Alexa for the weather, get new food recipes, control smart home devices, listen to music, hear the news, and more – hands-free. Device makers can now access the new Brazilian Portuguese language models using AVS APIs, adding support for another language to their Alexa Built-in products.
