Following in Apple’s footsteps, Amazon too brings Alexa Household that allows you to share your Amazon content and purchases with the members of your family.

And therefore, their music libraries and digital book shelf will be different. With different household profiles, family members can use their own calendars, to-do lists and preferences.
