How to Change Alexa Name to Jarvis

Many people have recently taken to customizing Alexa. You could be disappointed if you’re a fan of Jarvis and expect Alexa to talk like him.

Unfortunately, renaming Alexa into Jarvis is not possible. Also, Jarvis’ voice is not supported by Alexa. But there are a few interesting change-ups you can do to get something similar.

How to Change Alexa Name to Jarvis?

You can modify Amazon Alexa app settings and change the name when you mention it. You can’t, however, alter it to Jarvis. “Alexa,” “Amazon,” “Computer,” and “Echo” are the only four options for the name that an Alexa speaker replies to right now.

When you want the renowned voice assistant to start responding to a follow-up request or query immediately, say the word. It’s how you catch her attention. Beyond these options, this setting is not adjustable, at least not yet.

Perhaps, manufacturers will work on upgrading this in the future. And maybe one day, we’ll meet again, and I’ll have the chance to teach you how to change the Alexa wake word to Jarvis.
