Alexa Can Tell Voices Apart with Individual Voice Profiles — Amazon Echo

Amazon drops Echo Show price after You Tube falloutMore

Back in April, Google Home gained the ability to recognise individual voices (before it rolled out to Brits in June) and Amazon has this week followed suit with the launch of Voice Profiles for Echo devices.

Amazon today is starting to roll out customized voice detection to its line of Amazon Echo and other Alexa-powered devices. Further, each user with a voice profile and on a Music Unlimited Family Plan, just needs to say "play music" to trigger Alexa to play songs based on the speaker's preferences.

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is winning the smart speaker wars by a large margin, according to a new study, helped by its vast selection of devices and large number of apps, or "skills".

"Once you set up the feature, Alexa will learn your voice (versus your spouse/partner/roommate's voice) and be able to deliver a more personalized experience", an Amazon spokesman said.

Amazon Echo and other Alexa devices previously supported multiple accounts, but required users to say "Alexa, switch accounts" to move between them.

Undesirable Bug On Google Home Mini Turned It Into A Surveillance Device
The Mini has a touch-sensitive surface, and, to issue a command, you can either say "OK Google " or long press on the top. He says the company replied to his initial e-mail within 10 minutes and issued a band-aid patch the day after his report.

This means if you ask Alexa to call your friend Ben, the Echo will call the right person. At launch, it is compatible with Shopping, Amazon Music, Alexa to Alexa calling and messaging, and Flash Briefings.

Scroll down to the end of the Accounts section and tap on Your Voice.

The training process does have you speak some specific phrases to train Alexa on your voice. From there, your voice is stored in the cloud, meaning it will apply to all your Alexa enabled devices.

Sales of voice-activated wireless speakers are set to surge this holiday season as a raft of devices from established and new competitors hit the market, a research firm predicted Thursday.
