Alexa can recognize and distinguish users by voice when desired. This could be practical for families.
Amazon Alexa can now recognize users by their voice and distinguish different users. The feature has to be enabled in the Alexa app if you want to use it.
There is the point under the account settings. The speaker heads through a short process in which the user has to read a few sets of samples. Once the voice is saved, Alexa automatically recognizes who’s talking to her.
The voice distinction is handy for families who share their Alexa speakers. For example, depending on the recognized voice, Alexa can play the user’s preferred music or read the appropriate messages.
