Now, if you significant other asks the same question, the Google Home will personalize its response for him or her. To get the device to recognize your voice, you just say, "Ok Google" and "Hey Google" two times each. Google can play customized playlists, in addition to telling you about your schedule and commute. Google said in a statement that the new feature makes it so that "only you would be able to shop via Google Home". Google has today announced that multi-user support is rolling out for the Google Home.
Google Home can now be trained to identify the different voices of people you live with. This is a feature Google Home devotees have been requesting since day one, and Google has finally acquiesced. Previously, the Google Assistant-backed smart speaker could only support a user at a time, making it a hassle to personalize the experience to yourself without messing up another individual's settings.
"Starting today, I can-and so can you".
Still, leaving your kids alone with Google Home might not be your safest bet.
The update is rolling out in the US initially.
Since its launch last fall, Google Assistant on Google Home has become able to answer questions, provide personal info (like calendar or flight information), and convey a unique personality. A neural network will analyze your voice, and be able to recognize you from then on.
When your account is connected to Google Home, you will be asked to say the phrases "Ok Google" and "Hey Google" twice each. Each person can download the Google Home app and complete the set up process from their own device.
Google Home is finally getting a feature that its users have been clamoring for since it launched a year ago: it can now distinguish between different voices and respond with personalized responses.
Google Home: Where is multiuser support available? But if you didn't set up Google Home with your Google account (maybe it's set up under your son's account), then you won't hear results that are meant for you. But Google says in its blog post that it will reach United Kingdom in coming months.
