From today, users can set up voice recognition on Amazon's Echo, Echo Dot, or Echo Show.

The new feature is now rolling out for the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show devices, but eventually, all users of Alexa-enabled devices (including those made by third-parties) should be able to take advantage of this new ability.

Amazon has updated its voice assistant Alexa with a cool new feature that many people who have an Echo device with multiple users have been wanting.

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is winning the smart speaker wars by a large margin, according to a new study, helped by its vast selection of devices and large number of apps, or "skills". 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. Interestingly, voice recognition is very efficient, it means when you will say "Call mom", it will call your mom, not your friend's. From this day, Amazon's AI assistant will be able to differentiate between multiple voices and provide personally tailored responses. Alexa will recognize their voice without you having to manually switch between profiles, or tell Alexa who you are.
