You’d be hard bet hearing the weather from DOD. 

Alexa

Amazon have stepped up their Amazon Echo and Dot services in India & the U.S.

Instead of the default ‘Alexa’ voice, there are now options to add celebrities to the voice feature.

In 2019, the U.S. market were treated to the voice of actor Samuel L. Jackson by saying ‘Hey Samuel’.

Now in India, movie star Amitabh Bachchan is a new alternative voice to ‘Alexa’.

So what if Ireland decided to add a celebrity voice feature? Here’s who we’d want in the mix:

Blindboy Boatclub

There’s something soothing about Blindboy’s ramblings, and his Limerick tongue would go down a treat.

Michael D Higgins

If you were feeling patriotic, having Michael D answer your questions would be as assuring as anyone.

Roy Keane

Good luck getting Keano to do this. Nonetheless, he’d be a staple for the Cork users.

Saoirse Ronan

The dulcet tones of Ireland’s Hollywood star would be a popular choice.

Liam Neeson

Want directions to the shop? Make it more epic with a ‘Taken’ style announcement.

Nadine Coyle 

Ask about birth charts and star signs. She’d love that.

Daniel O’Donnell 

Ah, Daniel. You ask him a wee question, and he gives you a wee answer.
