These skills offer Anghami users in the UAE and KSA an enhanced interactive experience that allows them to play music that fits their mood, stream their favourite podcasts, listen to religious content and control millions of songs by simply conversing with Alexa using local pronunciations and intonation in both Arabic and English dialects. Customers with smart devices will simply need to connect their Anghami accounts to their Alexa device and start the conversation by saying “Alexa, start Anghami music” and the skill will welcome them providing a wide range of Arabic content available on the platform.
“In recognition of the importance of our Arabic language, this partnership will further enhance the experience for our customers and help to spread our culture worldwide”, commented Elie Habib, Co-Founder and CTO of Anghami. He added, “As part of our continued commitment to elevating the music industry and incorporating leading technology capabilities, we are thrilled to partner with Amazon to bring an innovative experience to our customers in KSA and UAE.”
“We are very excited to team up with Anghami, the region’s leading digital music platform, giving customers access to millions of international and Arabic songs and podcasts. Only by using their voice, customers can ask Alexa to play their favorite songs from the region’s largest music catalog in Arabic”, said Eric Saarnio, VP Devices and Services, Amazon.
