Alexa Loses Her Voice in Widespread Outage

It went quiet for users in many locations Friday because of an outage within Amazon's cloud data service, AWS.

Yahoo found that Alexa could soon help a native English speaker attending a meeting with Japanese business partners understand what those people are saying in Japanese.

Amazon wants to turn Alexa into a real-time translator. DownDetector.com is also reporting with Alexa.

Sources familiar with the matter claim that Amazon is "seriously exploring" the possibility of making Alexa more useful across different languages and cultures, according to Yahoo Finance. It would ideally have an understanding of Japanese culture as well and would incorporate that knowledge into its translations.

If you're traveling and unsure of how to ask for a table at a restaurant, Amazon wants Alexa to have your back.

Alexa is already capable of translating words and short phrases between several languages.

Is Amazon Alexa down?

The artificial intelligence battle between Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant may have just heated up a notch as Ashwin Ram, previously the Senior Manager of Alexa AI, has joined Google as the Technical Director of AI at Google Cloud. The Pixel Buds' real-time translation feature received mixed reviews.

The sources also expect that one day Alexa will be so advanced that a single device could translate multiple people speaking multiple different languages at the same time. Anyone who uses Alexa to control smart-home devices, like smart light bulbs, could experience delays before Alexa carries out your command. The chip is expected to power Alexa's artificial intelligence features, and may be a component for whenever the real-time language translation service will be rolled out.
