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

Amazon's virtual assistant Alexa gets a cool new trick this week - the ability to recognize your voice. Amazon confirmed that the update is rolling out to the Alexa app today. Once you've trained Alexa, she'll store your voice recognition info in the cloud, which means that it'll automatically apply to any other Alexa devices you purchase in the future. First you'll need to set up an Alexa voice profile, which involves training through the Alexa app.

Amazon tells us that the voice recognition feature will extend across the entire range of Alexa devices, as well as numerous third-party Alexa devices not made by Amazon. You'll go to your account settings and tap Your Voice, then tap on your profile name.

How to watch SpaceX Falcon 9 launch
The Falcon 9 booster to be launched on Wednesday made its maiden voyage on February, 2017, on a mission to resupply the ISS. On Wednesday evening, SpaceX plans to launch a satellite using an already flown rocket for the third time ever.

At launch, personalized results will be available for shopping with Amazon, news flash briefings, Amazon Music Unlimited account holders, and calls and messages. The functionality has remained one of the most-requested for Alexa, with users' eagerness only fueled by Google adding support for voice recognition to its Google Home several months ago.

Everyone in the home using Alexa should do the same thing, teaching the assistant who to expect to hear from. For instance, if I tell Alexa simply to "play music", she'll start playing songs based on my preferences.
