KitGuru Says: This could make way for Alexa-powered devices to only respond to your voice, which in turn would make it much more hard for your friends or even South Park to prank you.

According to Amazon's setup instruction video, training the assistant to recognize a user's voice requires they repeat 10 given phrases.

There is a caveat to the voice recognition feature at launch, however; voice recognition only works with certain features and services.

Click on the different models to get an in depth look at what each internal component is responsible for, the cost of the part, and more. Since, Alexa will save the voice recognition details in the cloud, the same setting will automatically be available to all Alexa devices that you purchase in the future. These include smartphones, tablets, Fire products and the Echo devices. From suggesting music playlists to authorizing shopping info, it will be able to fit your needs exactly. The feature is also useful when making calls to each specific person's contact list. It would know, for instance, whose message you want it to read.

It's even more interesting that this is only the beginning. Then access Account Heading and finally, Your Voice. You'll have to repeat ten sentences over to train Alexa that it's your voice. It's important to be in a quiet room so that the virtual assistant will have a flawless training.
