Google Home now supports multiple users

  • 5 things you can do with the new Google Assistant

Google Home can now support up to six people, differentiating each user by their voice, the company announced Thursday (April 20). Today's update lets you add up to six people so that everyone can talk to the Home and actually get personalized responses.

Google Home, right, sat on display near a Pixel phone, October 4, following a product event, in San Francisco. So even if you don't create an account for your guests or your children, they'll still be able to ask it to do things such as answer questions, set timers, or play videos on a Chromecast. Your voice is then analyzed by a neural network, and the device should recognize it thereafter.

Lutron has added Google Assistant to its list of technologies from which users can control their lights using voice. Until it gets that going, Google can finally claim some bragging rights - but it still has a lot of catching up to do, Engadget said. Its smart speaker is rapidly catching up to Amazon's popular Echo range of devices, and multi-user support bumps its speed up a notch in the race.

We asked Google how confident it was in its ability to distinguish users only by voice: "We've worked hard to make the Assistant work well for you, and we're excited for users to start hearing their music, news and more". With that said, we're just getting started and we won't be flawless.

Google explains: "So how does it work?"

When someone starts speaking to Home with "Okay, Google" or "Hey, Google", the device compares the voice to previous voices it has heard and determines its identity-all in a matter of milliseconds. Like your dog, though, Google Home needs some training so it can learn. It will expand to the United Kingdom in the coming months.

The update signals a possibility that Google Assistant features now unavailable on Home, such as events, reminders, and notes, may finally be incorporated into Home.
