Did you know Amazon Alexa was born on November 6, 2014? Yes, Alexa is celebrating her 9th birthday this year. We can't believe we have been testing and playing with Amazon Alexa-enabled devices for that long. It seems like just yesterday when we published our Amazon Echo (1st Gen) review.

Over the past nine years, Alexa has accomplished a lot. Besides becoming one of the most popular virtual assistants in the world and powering over 400 million smart home devices, Alexa has helped keep people connected, especially during the pandemic. She has also helped people with disabilities to manage their homes and daily life. She brought joy to millions of people worldwide with her soft and welcoming voice, no matter what language she spoke.

Today, Amazon Alexa is continuing to evolve. The company is constantly working to add new features and skills and will soon offer an Alexa skill that leverages AI. We are excited to see what the future holds for Alexa and can't wait to see what she accomplishes in the next nine years.

So, what can you do to help celebrate Alexa's birthday? You can get a free birthday skill that will let you play games, ask Alexa about her favorite things, and more—all easy things to do with your Echo smart speaker or display.

To celebrate Alexa's ninth birthday, Amazon is offering a variety of deals on Alexa devices. Here is the list of big deals on Amazon devices and bundles the company is offering to celebrate Alexa's 9th Birthday through November 12th.
