When the news first broke out, people were visibly excited. @SH_221bBSt and thousands of other users immediately voiced their appreciation for a star who’s adored and respected by one and all.
Alexa can now respond in @SamuelLJackson 's voice, I will be hugely disappointed if every response doesn't include mother f*cker.

Amazon obviously knew it wouldn’t make sense to have Jackson’s voice without his iconic remarks. The platform had released two versions of the feature: a clean and an explicit one. Users can easily switch between the two from the Alexa app.
The @SamuelLJackson voice skill for Alexa is the best money I’ve ever spent.

Didn’t find any, did you? Well, because there isn’t! @hemal is absolutely spot on, and many would agree. Samuel L. Jackson’s voice costs just about $0.99 as part of an introductory offer, after which the price would be $4.99. Not bad, right?
I’d probably get a lot accomplished if Alexa dictated my to-do list with @SamuelLJackson ‘s voice https://t.co/MZaoo64dX3

As far as pep talks go, Samuel Jackson can deliver the best one out there. His ferocious demeanor shines through that confident voice and motivates people to keep it going. You concur, @NiaWong?
Tell Alexa to chill. The voice of @SamuelLJackson is now coming through your Amazon smart speakers. pic.twitter.com/zkGSPIi7XN

When you ask Jackson what it's like outside, or how to make sandwiches, or what his favorite time of the day is, you’re asking for trouble. The man has transcended such questions. Thankfully, he will keep his nerve and not swear, for once!
I asked Alexa if she could sound like @SamuelLJackson yet. She gave me a preview, then said Sam costs extra. Sam should be included with #AmazonPrime, because that's exactly what his voice is. Prime.

Gotta hand it to you, @GhastlyDope. You absolute piece of art! Sam’s voice is definitely legendary and gets our blood pumping. Fortunately, it doesn’t cost much to get him on Alexa.
Amazon just announced @SamuelLJackson as their first celebrity voice for Amazon Alexa. This is great news! I can never have too much Nick Fury in my life.
— Kev (@kevreasner) September 26, 2019
Tony Stark might not agree, but what can we do? Like @kevreasner, the rest of us actually like Nick Fury and wouldn’t mind having him over 24x7. It could get slightly complicated, especially if he invites his superhero friends over.
Alexa, ask @SamuelLJackson to sing me happy birthday ???????? pic.twitter.com/gQheNeI0jO

Have a look at @_marcba’s hilarious post to know what we’re talking about. Very few things define Jackson better than his unending love for the word and the many ways he throws it around.
It’s a pretty cool time to be alive #alexa @alexadevs @SamuelLJackson pic.twitter.com/ALa2YDzRp1
— Jeff Nunn (@jbnunn) December 13, 2019
Clearly, @jbnunn had a blast last Christmas. And why not, when you’ve got Mr. Cool bringing you the best of Christmas carols. Can’t wait to spend our Holidays with Jackson already!
Me: I’ll never get an Alexa because I don’t want Amazon listening and recording my private life,which would be a gross invasion of my privacy. Also me: I want @SamuelLJackson to give me f**king cooking instructions. https://t.co/5DXKY8mF3E
— Cat Headley (@Cat_Headley) September 29, 2019
At first, we were just as happy as @Cat_Headley to learn that Sam could help us out in the kitchen. However, the realization soon dawned, and we’re not really sure if we could hold back the tears if Sam starts hurling instructions while we cook.
Welp, now I gotta get an Alexa. I’ll never oversleep again with @SamuelLJackson’s voice yelling “wake up motherf*ck*r!” as an alarm clock https://t.co/hLemEP1Zia
— Chris Martin (@CMartSpeaks) September 26, 2019
@CMartSpeaks is damn right! Oversleeping is a major problem for many of us, and getting an Alexa with Jackson’s electrifying, thunderous voice might do the trick. Imagine dreaming of those beautiful realms and suddenly, out of nowhere, BAM!
Me: Alexa, is there a snake on the plane?Alexa: Yo, Creamy....cut it man.
— CreamyButters (@CreamyButters) September 26, 2019
Points to @CreamyButters for being the only one to get Jackson slightly nervous in there. The legendary actor has starred in a number of blockbusters, including Snakes on a Plane, Pulp Fiction, and Django Unchained, among others.
