Teach Alexa to recognize your voice

It's a great way for everyone in your household to have their own Alexa experience

We're all spending more time at home, and for many of us that means more time with all the other members of our households -- spouses, kids, friends, etc. If you have multiple Alexa users in your home, I highly recommend teaching Alexa your voice.

Just say "Alexa, learn my voice," and you'll be on your way to a way more personalized Alexa experience.

For example, when I say "Alexa, play my flash briefing,” Alexa will play only the briefings that I haven't listened to yet. If my husband makes the same request, Alexa will play only the flash briefings he hasn't heard yet.

Teaching Alexa your voice will also personalize Alexa calling & messaging, shopping and music (if you subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan). Plus, with my Alexa voice profile set up, when I say "Alexa, thank you," she responds "You're welcome, Katherine." Sometimes it's the little things that make you smile :) 

Do This Now: Set up your Alexa voice profile (takes 2 mins)

Set-up via Alexa voice command (recommended): Just say "Alexa, learn my voice." She’ll ask you to confirm your name, and then all you’ll have to do is repeat 4 short phrases

Set-up via Alexa app: Open the Alexa app > Tap the hamburger icon in the top left corner > Tap "Settings" > Tap "Account Settings" > Tap "Recognized Voices" > Toggle on "Automatic Voice Recognition" and Tap "Create a voice profile" (if it says "Manage voice profile" that means you've already set it up and probably just forgot you did it!) > Follow the prompts to say 4 short phrases
