Add Portuguese (Portugal and Brazil) language support to Alexa (pt-PT and pt-BR)
Currently Portuguese is not supported by Alexa. One of the most spoken languages in the world (6th place). Please make sure to distinguish Portuguese Portugal (pt-PT) from Brazilian Portuguese (pt-BR).

Please release Alexa in Brazilian Portuguese so I can by more echo dots for relatives who live in Brazil as they cannot speak any other languague but Portuguese-BR. Portuguese is the 6th most widely spoken languague in the world. There are over 200 MILLION people in Brazil, it is a huge market and you are already behind Google Assistant. There is no time to waste!

To clarify my last comment, allow an easy way for individuals to link commands in any language or sound to existing language. (I.e. if speak language X and I need to turn on the AC and say "afdrjbdhkc" Alexa knows to translate it to the existing command "turn on the AC" even though it doesn't have language X software, because I've previously trained it to recognize that sound as a certain command. This would have to allow multiple basic commands without me having to go through a commercial developer to bus that skill.
Please develop an easier way for people to use Alexa in other languages, if not already fully launching Alexa in that language. I would love to set up Alexa in my blind grandma's home to help her be more independent, but she only speaks Brazilian Portuguese.

Please release Alexa in Brazilian Portuguese soon. It would be a great tool for my blind mother.
Please, my wife is Brazilian and although perfect English Alexa does not like her accent.

I would like to listen to Portuguese music on this app
Developers can start building voice experiences for customers in Brazil using the new Portuguese for Brazil voice model. Skills that developers create now and are certified for publication will be available for customers when Alexa launches in Brazil later this year.
Developer documentation can be found here: https://developer.amazon.com/docs/custom-skills/develop-skills-in-multiple-languages.html
Currently pt-PT is not an available feature. For any upcoming announcements you can stay tuned to our blogs: https://developer.amazon.com/blogs/alexa/
