Amazon's Alexa can now recognize different voices and give personalized responses

Amazon Echo Show is $30 off right now Your Amazon Alexa device can finally tell different voices apart

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.

Echo Show also connects to Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn-giving you voice control for all of your music. From this day, Amazon's AI assistant will be able to differentiate between multiple voices and provide personally tailored responses. With that said, we believe Alexa will be showing off the same prowess in other devices which doesn't support the feature now, like the Fire TV remote to name one.

Amazon Echo owners, if you ever found yourself jealous of Google Home's ability to recognize different voices, then you will be happy to know that Alexa just gained this exact skill this week.

Later on, Bellinger was at it again in the fifth hitting. "I could tell by the body language that things were going good". Tony Cingrani got a double play and Brandon Morrow got a groundout to end the sixth and then pitched a 1-2-3 seventh.

What makes it different than Amazon's Echo smart speakers is that it's equipped with a 7-inch display that can show song lyrics, the weather, and can also be used to make voice calls, among other things. Interestingly, voice recognition is very efficient, it means when you will say "Call mom", it will call your mom, not your friend's. It will work with shopping, Amazon Music, Flash Briefings, and Alexa-to-Alexa calling. It would know, for instance, whose message you want it to read. In order to train Alexa to know your voice, you will have to access the Settings menu.

Scroll down to the end of the Accounts section and tap on Your Voice. The feature comes after Google launched its Home speaker earlier this year with similar functionality.

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.
