Can I use device or user ID which is personalized based on customer's voice?

The next page was posted last year. It explains that limited developers can use Alexa's Voice Profile feature.
Currently, is this feature available to all skill-developers? We plan to personalize our skill response.

It is available but only as developer preview, for exclusive companies/users. When it will be a available, they will probably announce it in their blog: link.

So short answer would be: they are working on it, but it is publicly not available.

UserId and DeviceId are shared between users who use the same device and same account, so it is not possible to identify who is using the device like this. Also they change if user enables/disables the skill.

The only other way, not an ideal one of course, would be to ask user who he is, when user invokes the skill. This way you could determine who is using the skill and tailor their expirience accordingly.
