Google Home's assistant can now recognize different voices

  • Google Home Gets Three More IoT Partners

One of the most common complaints about Google Home is that it lacks real support for multiple users. To use this feature you should be on latest version of Google Home App.

While Google didn't have any official comment about this, this new feature may also finally open up a path to bringing some of the Google Assistant features like creating notes, reminders and events that are now missing on Home (but available on Android, for example).

During profile setup, the Google Home app prompts users to say "Ok Google" and "Hey Google" repeatedly, so the software onboard the speaker can identify their voices' distinct qualities.

To set up multiple accounts, you'll need to use the Google Home app.

Google began rolling out a feature this week to remedy the situation in households with a shared Google Home unit: the ability for up to six people to connect their account to that unit and, following a brief training period, have the speaker recognize each person's voice independently.

"It's important to balance making sure the assistant on Google Home is still useful and able to answer a guest's or friend's question while also answering a few specific questions just for you", Google spokeswoman Kara Stockton said. This is a feature Google Home devotees have been requesting since day one, and Google has finally acquiesced.

Amazon's competing device, the Echo, supports multiple accounts. But it's superior in at least one major regard: Multi-user support.

You'll get someone else's schedule, news, and music preferences.

Still, leaving your kids alone with Google Home might not be your safest bet. If you don't see the card, click on the icon in the top-right, and find your Google Home from the list of connected devices. The smart speaker's neural networks will learn what you sound like - and next time you ask for your commute time or Spotify playlist, it will give you what you want - and your spouse or roommate can do the same. Each person can download the Google Home app and complete the set up process from their own device. Google Home will still listen to unregistered voices when asked for things like facts and games. But Google says in its blog post that it will reach United Kingdom in coming months.
