  • Amazon is discontinuing Celebrity Personalities for Alexa.
  • The Samuel L. Jackson personality has already stopped working.
  • Shaq and Melissa McCarthy’s voices will stop working later this year.

Amazon first introduced Celebrity Personalities for Alexa back in 2019. Now it appears Amazon is pulling the plug on Alexa’s celebrity voices skill.

If you go to the Celebrity Personalities for Alexa page, you’ll be greeted by the faces of Samuel L. Jackson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Melissa McCarthy. But if you click on their individual pages, you’ll notice there’s an update. That update reveals that these Celebrity Personalities are no longer available for purchase. Not only are these voices no longer available for purchase, but Amazon also appears to be ending support.
