Now Alexa can recognize voices of multiple users

Amazon Alexa gets voice recognition

This new feature by Amazon is now available for messaging, calling, flash briefing, shopping and enjoying the Unlimited Amazon Music and soon this update will cover all features. After completing the training, voice profile will work across other Alexa devices including Echo series devices, tablets, smartphone and third-party Alexa-enabled devices.

The solution, for these mostly blind devices, has been voice recognition, first seen on the Google Home, and today available on Amazon's Echo range of smart speakers.

One of Google Home's most interesting features is coming to Amazon's family of Echo speakers. Even for the command "play a station", Amazon's voice assistant will personalize results, notes ZDNet. It has been something which Amazon missed out, but it's now making it up for that with the introduction of voice recognition and additional features in Alexa.

In addition, users who have set a voice confirmation code for shopping, now no longer have to say the code as Alexa already recognizes the voice linked to that account.

Amazon launched a new skill for Alexa this week that will allow any of the company's Echo products to recognize individual voices. To activate the new feature, users need to go to the "Your Voice" section under settings, and then follow the instructions.

The training process does have you speak some specific phrases to train Alexa on your voice. Once you've trained the virtual assistant, she will store the information in the cloud and make use of it again if you purchase another Alexa-enabled device. It's definitely an inelegant way to do that and I prefer the way Google Home just shows up for other members of my household since they're connected to the same WiFi and lets them teach their voice.
