For developers with skills that use only one voice, changing it or adding another in the right place may offer a more engaging experience for customers, according to the post.

Since then we have not heard much more about the initiative, and Amazon is using this slack to try and install their own digital assistant in the dashboard of your vehicle.

The online retail giant said Wednesday that developers can now apply to test the voices, which were built to sound like U.S. English speakers.

Creating engaging skills can pay off: Developers can make money through Alexa skills using in-skill purchasing or Amazon Pay for Alexa Skills, the post noted.

An Alexa app, pre-installed on the computer will let the users call up the assistant and see any information like weather forecasts, music albums and more on display. An Alexa Skills Kit comprises tools, application programming interfaces (APIs), code samples and documentation to enable developers to add skills to the 10,000-plus voice recognition capabilities already available on Alexa.

The eight voices will be in US English and will give devs who use them a chance to liven up their Alexa skills.
