One of the most well-known voices in the world is coming to your Alexa-powered device. That’s right, now you can interact with Samuel L. Jackson through your Amazon‘s devices. Unfortunately, you can’t change Alexa’s default voice to Jackson’s. (We would love that, by the way. Are you listening, Amazon?) You can ask Alexa questions directed toward Jackson, and hear his reply, though. Interactions include jokes, weather forecasts, movie questions, and more.

Samuel L. Jackson is renowned for his creative use of the F-word. With Alexa, you can choose to let him rip in his 100% explicit glory, or choose non-explicit mode.

Jackson and slide the Explicit Content tab to choose whether you want the toned-down Jackson or not.
