The IP.com Prior Art Database
The present disclosure describes systems and methods that provide for routing messages among devices located around a physical location without requiring the sender to know the current location of the recipient. More particularly, the present disclosure provides for combining a plurality of devices, such as smart speakers, home assistants, and/or the like, located around a physical location, such as an office, building, and/or the like, with intelligent voice matching capabilities to enable inter-room messaging by addressing the individual recipient without needing to know the room they are currently located in. In some implementations, the devices can monitor their surroundings for human speech and identify location members within audible range of the device using voice identifiers, such as voice features and/or speech patterns stored in personal speech profiles. The devices can use the identified member locations to provide for routing messages between members among the devices located in the physical location.
