This update means a household with multiple roommates or family members will be able to access their own personalized info when they interact with Google Home, rather than that of the primary owner.
One of the biggest limitations of Google Home, Google's voice-controlled speakerbot, was that it couldn't tell anyone apart so all your requests were centered on one Google account.
Though Google has not made any comment on this prospect, there is a possibility that this new feature could be the starting of incorporating some of Google Assistant's features like creating notes, reminders and events that are now missing on Home.
A user can link his or her account through the Google Home app. You'll say "Ok Google" and "Hey Google" twice each. So, from now on it will be the Google Home, and not your better-half, providing information regarding your day's schedule. Voices Google doesn't recognize can still ask the Home to look up information, play trivia, set a timer, or control smart home devices.
To make use of support for multiple users you'll need to do the following.
"Starting today, I can-and so can you". During the training process, your "OK Google" phrases are analyzed by a neural network, which Google says can "detect certain characteristics of a person's voice".
Customize Google Home by tapping on the three-line icon in the upper left-hand corner, and selecting More settings from the drop-down menu.
Those people who aren't recognized users can still ask questions of the Home device, but it won't respond to more personal queries about things like users' calendar data.
The multi-user function for Google Home is only available in the United States at launch, though Google plans to expand to the United Kingdom in the near future. Only one person's Google account could be logged in at a time. This was made known today by Yury Pinsky, Product Manager Google Assistant in a blog post.
