How does Alexa recognise human voice
Both Alexa and Google have powerful NLU (Natural Language Understanding) running on their cloud. When user speaks to the devices, his speech just transferred to the cloud and with help of NLU, they try to determine the context/intent of the user request, thus able to determine the end of the phrase.
If they are not able to determine the intent (because user didn’t complete the sentence or user never asked a question after uttering the keyword) then a 4–5 seconds of silence determines the end of phrase.
