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

Back in April, Google Home gained the ability to recognize individual voices, which allows the device to personalize its response for everyone in your house or apartment.

Amazon launched the Echo Show back in June this year.

Starting today, you'll be able to train Alexa to recognize your voice.

You can set up voice recognition using any Alexa device like an Echo or the Alexa app on your smartphone - or even a Fire TV with voice remote.

The Amazon Echo Show comes with a 7 inch display and features dual 2.0 inch speakers, the device comes with Amazon's Alexa voice activated assistant built in. Sales of the device have probably taken a turn for the worse and Amazon has now discounted the Echo Show by $30 for the first time. One Verified Purchaser, who originally gave the product five stars, updated their review with the following statement in late September.

Just a few days after its public spat with Google, Amazon is slashing the price of its premium smart speaker from $229.99 to $199.99.

A spokesperson tells The Verge voice recognition will work for calling and messaging, flash briefing, shopping, and the Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan with more features to come. If my roommate asks, she'll play different songs that are better-suited to his tastes. Additional voice recognition use cases are on the way, Amazon says. With voice recognition, however, that code can be bypassed, with Alexa only placing the order if she recognizes the person making it.
