This feature has been around for a long time on Google Home, but now it’s finally available to Echo users. This will allow multiple family members to use Echo for a more personalized experience. So if you ask Alexa when your next meeting is, she’ll know who’s asking and look into your calendar. If your spouse asks the same questions, Alexa will look to his calendar.
Of course, this is just an example, and there are many other things that Alexa can personalize with this new feature, including music playlists, calling and messaging, and flash briefings. Here’s how to do it. Keep in mind that each member of your family will need to complete the following steps in their own Alexa app in order to add their voice profile.
Start by opening the Alexa app on your phone and tap the menu button in the top left corner of the screen.
Scroll down and click «Your Voice».
Click on «Get Started» at the bottom.
Next, you will conduct voice training on the Echo device. So click «Select Device».
It doesn’t matter which one you choose. Just choose the one closest to you.
