Google Home's assistant can now recognize different voices

Google Home's assistant can now recognize different voices

In a hugely significant update announced on Thursday, the firm revealed users asking "Ok, Google".

Google Home now supports Multi users now.

This feature will start rolling out today for Google Home users in the US, and will expand to the U.K.in the coming months, the company said.

Your Google Home speaker now supports up to six different users at any one time. The Google Home now supports multiple accounts with personalization and neural network voice recognition. The sound of your voice is then compared to the previous analysis so the Assistant can understand the exact person speaking. "For certain features, like personalized music and commute, you'll also need to set up your preferences within the app" Pinsky added. Having multiple accounts would especially complicate such features, but hopefully future updates will make the device able to actually do more.

"Your Assistant should be personal to you - and now it is". This prevents potential blunders from happening, such as one case where a news broadcast caused a number of Echo devices to order dollhouses.

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. With that said, we're just getting started and we won't be ideal. Until it's confident the feature will work sans any missteps, Google advises users not to rely on voice recognition as a security feature. Google notes, "this comparison takes place only on your device, in a matter of milliseconds". And specific features, like personalized playlists, must be set up individually.

Google Home may finally have a solution to children "hijacking" the device to buy stuff.

The new capabilities should be available to Google Home users in the U.S. starting Thursday and will be available in the United Kingdom in the coming months.
