Following the footsteps of rival offering Google Home, Amazon'sAlexa smart speaker can now differentiate voices and offer back a personalised response. The original Echo was first made available in late 2014 for select Amazon Prime subscribers, and that means the Alexa AI has been learning new tricks and features for almost three years. Setting the new feature up requires the user to register their voice, and once registered you can sync it with Amazon account preferences.
Amazon had a head start on AI-powered home speakers compared to other players like Google.
Google Home and most recently Amazon's Alexa can tell whose voice is talking to it so it can respond to the right person, making the voice assistants even more personally tuned. Interestingly, voice recognition is very efficient, it means when you will say "Call mom", it will call your mom, not your friend's. However, it should be kept in mind that touch-to-talk devices such as Fire TV remote and Amazon Tap do not support voice profiles.
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. Alexa is now able to recognize your voice for Flash Briefings and automatically skips stories you listened to from your feed.
Now you will be shown 10 phrases to read outloud, so that Alexa can learn your voice.
These voice profiles will then work across other Echo devices and "most" third-party party Alexa-enabled devices.
Alexa has been able to handle multiple accounts before, you had to switch between them using the Alexa app. After the training, the voice assistant will instantly recognize them on any device.
