Google Home's assistant can now recognize different voices

Google says multiple user support will roll out to Google Home in the United States beginning today. The voice-activated assistant of Google can now recognise different voices, as in who is talking to it on Google Home speaker. 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. When you ask to play music, your preference in music service will play by default and you will have access to your personal playlists from Google Play Music, Pandora and Spotify.

Previously, Home only linked up to the account of whomever set it up first. Rumors that Alexa was going to implement voice recognition have been swirling for some time, but it appears that Google beat them to it this time around.

Another feather added to the crown of Google Home. This prevents potential blunders from happening, such as one case where a news broadcast caused a number of Echo devices to order dollhouses. Tap Continue, then tap Invite if you want to add someone else to the Google Home. "We're just getting started and we won't be ideal", the statement said. When this feature becomes available, it will be indicated on a card in the Google Home app with the message "multi-users is available". United Kingdom will get it in the coming months, according to Google.
