    Get ready Echo users, Alexa has lost her voice and a new voice might be responding soon! Amazon’s new Super Bowl ad teaser posted on youtube kicks off with a woman in a bathroom brushing her teeth. She asks Alexa what the weather is in Austin. As Alexa starts to answer, the digital assistant coughs and splutters, and then falls silent. Jeff Bezos appears and gives the nods for the new update. See the full preview below:

    Haha! I wonder if it will be a more realistic voice or what?

    hope it is just a commercial. I have no problems with the voice.

    I prefer google over alexa, but... I've had an echo dot and it was useful.

    I like the commercial, kind of comical at the end. What better way to plug your product than the big game, one of the most watched events of the year. For the few folks out there that may not know what an Echo / Alexa is, they will after the commercial. Pretty smart. As a Google Home owner myself, I wonder if Google will add support for additional (or new) voices after this update to Echo rolls out? Both companies seem to be neck-in-neck with rolling out new updates around the same time as each other. One adds new functionality...the other adds it some after, etc.

    most likely google will eventually add different voices. they are still the new kid on the block though they have a better distribution system. this time around new voices for alexa and possibly new names to use for google. who knows what is next.

    I think the commercial was pretty great, I'm not getting an alexa as I've used one and it's just meh... Still a great commercial.
