Amazon lays off ‘several hundred’ people working on Alexa

Amazon has begun laying off ‘several hundred’ workers in its Alexa division according to an internal memo sent to employees last week from Daniel Rausch, Vice President of Alexa and Fire TV. This comes exactly one year after Amazon cut approximately 10,000 jobs in its Devices & Services division where many of the layoffs also involved Alexa-related positions. The memo states that these new cuts are at least partially for “maximizing our resources and efforts focused on generative AI.” The memo continues to say that they “remain very optimistic about the future of Alexa” and that “Alexa remains an incredibly important part of our business.”
