How to Change Language of Alexa on Echo and compatible devices


First, open the Alexa app. Then head to Settings or Devices. There you will see the list of paired devices. If you can't find yours, you can easily add it. Remember that they must both be connected to the same Wi-Fi connection and also be logged in with the same Amazon user.


Once you select the device to change the Alexa language to, go to Language. There you will find the languages available depending on which device you have. Choose the one you want and save the changes by clicking on the corresponding buttons.

As a curiosity, in the latest versions of Alexa, you can also ask the Amazon assistant to speak more than one language. As simple as asking for it by voice. For example, if you tell him to speak in Spanish, that will be his default language. But if you tell her to speak English and Spanish, she will answer you in one language or another depending on the language you speak to her.
