Alongside the roll out, which is going live right now, Amazon has announced some new skills to take advantage of its bilingual capabilities, including ones from Univision and Telemundo.
More languages, more places
Amazon Music is getting a little extra Spanish flavor too, with new playlists available focused around Latin music.
