Truth be told, before you try your luck with Alexa speaking profane words out loud, it’s not going to happen. There is no official method, as Amazon does not allow reckless or rude words. As soon as it detects a word like that, it automatically marks it. As you may already know, all you hear is a censored beep as soon as Alexa tried to pronounce the word. If you are thinking that nothing really works, stick to that thought as I have found some solutions that you might like. So without further ado, here’s how to make Alexa swear using your Amazon Echo devices. Let’s jump right in.
Make Alexa swear using Echo devices
1. Alexa Ads
Although Amazon ran ads with the goal of creating an ecosystem for multiple Echo devices in your home. Think of it more like a personal ad system for your home. For example, you can use it to tell everyone that dinner is ready, to quickly get ready when you’re late for a trip, etc. For us, the ad feature is useful as it can use profanity like, idiot, damn, A ** h ***, etc., which Amazon still allows.
If you use voice command, ‘Alexa announces x’, record your voice and play it as is. So if you don’t have a problem with a voice memo, go ahead and use the voice command.
To use the announcement feature, you can say “Alexa, announce x”, where x is the message. Another way is through the Alexa app. To do that, Open the Alexa app from the main menu, tap make an announcement from the home screen. Now simply write the phrase / word you want to hear it will play instantly on your Alexa devices. Easy right?
2. Samuel L. Jackson
If you often use Alexa to tell a story, ask for weather details, set an alarm, and more, now you can add an extra personality with the Samuel L. Jackson Alexa skill. The skill will cost $ 1.99 and once you purchase it, you will have the option of keeping the language clean or dirty. We all know how dirty Jackson can get!
When you set the language to explicit, you will use a combination of clean and explicit words. You can enable or disable this option easily. To enable / disable, just say, ‘Alexa, turn explicit filter on / off’.
3. Allowed curses
As I already mentioned, making Alexa swear is difficult as it is extremely efficient at detecting profanity. I tried using certain words, but some were a success one day and a failure the next. Still, there are tons of profanity that Amazon doesn’t censor, like curse, c ** p, and more. Instead of putting words in here, you can go ahead and Google it as you’ll get a much more comprehensive list of bad words compared to what my mind can hold in one go. Then start testing it with Alexa and see what works and what doesn’t. I know trial and error is a long process, but it is a great solution.
4. Similar sounding words
This trick is similar to the previous one, but in this case, we are trying to find words that sound similar to other bad words. For example, fuck is a word that will always be censored. So instead we can use, fug, fuk, etc. You get the idea right?
This fulfills our goal, as adults will be able to easily understand what is being said. Also, the youngest guys in the house won’t be able to figure it out directly, so it’s a safe bet. I’m sure since you’re reading this you’ll find it pretty easy to make up these words in an instant. If you still need a helping hand, just use this website to find words that have the same consonants and sound similar.
5. Simon says
Simon has always played his role as our personal parrot. Repeat what you say as is, but not in this case. Amazon’s strict policy works well with this skill as well, so you should rely on other similar sounding words or permitted profanity that we discussed in the previous points.
If you haven’t used Simon Says before, don’t worry as it’s pretty easy. All you have to say is ‘Alexa, Simon says x’, where x is the word or phrase you want to repeat. That’s it.
6. Amazon Alexa Skill Blueprints (Custom Questions and Answers)
Skill Blueprints allows you to ask personalized questions and answers that Alexa can answer. The process is simple and makes Alexa respond using the custom response that you enter. So, let’s see how it’s done.
one. To ask a custom question, go to the Skill Blueprint page and select Personalized Questions and Answers> Make Your Own.
two. Write the question in the When you say: Alexa, and the answer in Alexa will say: option. Once you’re done, click Create skill in the upper right corner to finish.
For example, when you say, “Alexa, is Siri better?
Alexa will say: Fook You.
It will take a few minutes before you can use the custom question feature. Also, you can delete or edit these responses whenever you want. Please note that you cannot add adult words as a question or answer. So the only option is to use words that sound similar to the ones we used in the previous methods. Also, the question is limited to a maximum of 10 words.

Closing Remarks: How to Make Alexa Swear
I suggest that you refrain from using bad words and especially in front of children. Profanity and profane content are not good for anyone. If you have children at home, hearing profanity will encourage them to use it in real life conversations. If you still plan on moving forward, I think using your announcement command with your voice is the best possible way, as long as you add a personal touch to your curses when speaking with your voice.
