When recognizing a registered user's voice, Alexa can deliver personalized results for messages, Alexa-to-Alexa calling, music playback, shopping, and news briefings. Once the setup is complete, voice profiles work across other Echo devices and the majority of third-party Alexa-enabled devices. However, Amazon promises voice recognition will be made available to other additional Alexa features sometime in the near future.

Alexa, Amazon's digital assistant can now recognise different voices to ensure that the responses are personalised for each user. It will also personalize results for the command "play a station".

"Consumers who are looking to buy a smart speaker this coming holiday season will have a wide range of form factors, prices and feature sets to choose from", Strategy Analytics analyst David Watkins said. But if you live with someone else, or own an Echo which is often used by visitors, teaching Alexa to understand their voice is where Voice Profiles starts to shine.

It sports a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 image sensor with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF autofocus, 4-axis OIS, and two-tone flash at the rear. Coming to the Front it has a 5-MP camera, the device also has a 12MP camera, which looks great and can also capture time-lapse.

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. TechCrunch also reports that Amazon is planning to "add unspecified functionality" soon, and that Alexa will "get smarter".

Once you have set up different profiles, Amazon says, Alexa will offer personalised results to each of the individual. In order to train Alexa to know your voice, you will have to access the Settings menu.

It turns out that 40% of smart light bulb owners use Amazon Echo or Google Home to control their devices. Especially, Amazon Echo will definitely be improved.
