It's the latest development in the back-and-forth battle between Alexa and the Google Assistant, each one working to one-up the other with new features as they fight to earn a place in your home.
Amazon's virtual assistant Alexa gets a cool new trick this week - the ability to recognize your voice. It's the first Echo device ever to feature a display.
An updated to the Alexa app for iOS, Android and Fire OS, introduces individual voice recognition. With voice recognition, however, that code can be bypassed, with Alexa only placing the order if she recognizes the person making it. Instructions on various ways to create a voice profile can be seen in this Amazon video.

At launch, the feature is compatible with Flash Briefings, shopping, Amazon Music's family plan and Alexa to Alexa calling, adding the name of the specific user to incoming calls. Additional voice recognition use cases are on the way, Amazon says.
