Alexa users can train Amazon’s voice assistant to learn how to recognize different voices and personalize its services for multiple users.

Amazon’s Alexa has evened up the score with Google Home and can now be used to set up multiple user accounts. Amazon’s Alexa “voice profiles” allows the Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show to deliver personalized responses to everyone in your family or share house. ​

Amazon Echo and other Alexa devices previously supported multiple accounts, but required users to say “Alexa, switch accounts” to move between them.When recognizing a registered user’s voice, Alexa can deliver personalized results for messages, Alexa-to-Alexa calling, music playback, shopping, and news briefings.

Now, for users on a Music Unlimited Family Plan, each person with a voice profile can just say “play music” and Alexa will select songs based on the speaker’s preferences.
