Google Home now supports multiple users
While Home can still give everyone general information and trivia via the Knowledge Graph (and more erratic "featured snippets"), it can only create appointments and do other user-specific stuff for one designated Google account. It's not that the device didn't recognize your voice - it's just that before today, you could only register one Google account to the Google Home device. Specifically, Google Home can now support up to six different individuals, and the smart speaker will be able to distinguish one user's voice from another so that the information provided will be tuned to the individual asking.
That means two different people in the same household can each log into a Google Home device and set it up with their calendars and other preferences.
"From there, you'll teach your Assistant to understand it's you, not your partner, family member or roommate-and vice versa, based on who's speaking".
To learn your voice, Google Home will ask you to speak the key phrases that "wake up" the device. Google said those phrases are analyzed by a neural network that can detect certain characteristics of a person's voice in a matter of milliseconds.
To start the setup process, look for the card that says "multi-user is available" in the Google Home app. Thanks to the way Google rolls out features, it might take a few days.
Aside from personalized results, each Home user may also set up their preferred third-party features, such as services for music or video streaming. You'll get your own playlists, schedule, and more. You should find a notification there that also says Multi-user is now available.
Google explains: "So how does it work?"
Google Home is, for the uninitiated, a smart home speaker similar to the Amazon Echo. The problem for Apple is the Google Home is getting better all the time. It will expand to the United Kingdom in the coming months.
