For example, Alexa will only speak out the data from sources that you have subscribed to.

E-commerce giant Amazon added the Voice Recognition and Multi-user support features to Echo earlier this year. In other words, Alexa was taught to recognize the owner’s voice and distinguish it from others. This would help the assistant provide you with personalized results.
