The Amazon Echo had a strange birth and introduction, it was only available in invite form for a few months and only recently it has gone on sale to the public, albeit only in the US. The device is actually pretty useful, it can play music on request, audiobooks, read the news, take orders and look up stuff but it only works for one Amazon user. Now, Amazon has added support for more than one person so everyone in the family can play their own music – using just their voice.

The Amazon Echo will switch profiles by you asking it to and then it will play your tunes.
