Amazon's Alexa Assistant Can Now Recognise Multiple Users' Voices

That's why when Google introduced the Google Home speakers, they upped the game by introducing voice recognition to let users tune the assistant for various users using the device. Amazon's Alexa "voice profiles" allows the Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show to deliver personalized responses to everyone in your family or share house.

To get started, head on over to the Alexa app and select the "Your Voice" option. More user voice functionality is coming but Amazon hasn't released any specifics on that yet.

AMAZON'S ALEXA VOICE ASSISTANT edged a step closer to Google Home this week with the rollout of support for multi-user voice profiles. As this puts both the devices on the same page, the battle between the smart speakers has become more intense. Interestingly, voice recognition is very efficient, it means when you will say "Call mom", it will call your mom, not your friend's. Alexa is now able to recognize your voice for Flash Briefings and automatically skips stories you listened to from your feed. Moreover, when it comes to news, Alexa will only read those that you haven't heard before. You'll have to repeat ten sentences over to train Alexa that it's your voice. Then access Account Heading and finally, Your Voice. If you live alone, or are the only person who uses your Echo then you are unlikely to get any immediate benefit from doing this. If you have an Alexa enabled device and want to try it out for yourself, navigate the settings on the mobile app and choose the "Your Voice" option.

They can be used to answer questions, such as a query about the weather today and tomorrow, for commerce, such as voice ordering a coffee from Starbucks, or to control other smart home devices.
