Alexa is part of my living room/kitchen/bedroom furniture. I would love for suggestions, restrictions and settings to be personalized to the asker that is invoking an intent. I assume it would be pretty easy for Alexa to identify if it is a male/female, adult or kid voice. That can be used to set some level of parental controls and customize music suggestions, stations, etc differently. It doesn't need to be perfect at all, but having Katy Perry and dance radio as "a station that I might like" could be improved. Same for firestick control, customizing answers (maybe less technical to kids than adults, for example) or controlling home connected devices (kids turning my bedroom lights on and off, opening the garage door...). Just a thought. This could even be improved by explicit setup where users could enter the family profile in the app for every user and a few samples of each user's voice (reading a sample text, for example).

I'd suggest that you put this in the feedback section of the Alexa app. This forum is for feature requests related to Alexa Skills Kit and Alexa Voice Service.

add an attribute "speechID" in the user object of the session Developers can use it to assign identical speechID to a user, and perhaps a percentage like "speechID_percentage" which will give an hint how sure alexa is for the correntness of the the speechID.
When a person first calls an skill, speedID_percentage is 0%, when a person calls a skill more and more, speechID_percentage will go up to 99% (per Skill or over all skills).
