The number of users supported for Google Home has increased to six. Basically, this means that Google Home now has the capacity to recognzie and distinguish the voices of multiple users for personalized content and results.
This includes things like news, music, scheduling, commute times and so on.
In order to this set up, users will have to get the most current version of the Google Home app. Every user will have to link a Google account and set up preferences in the app. There’s a process where each user will have to say either “Hey Google” or “Ok Google” twice.
After this, there will be an audio/voice analysis to determine which person is speaking:
From that point on, any time you say “Ok Google” or “Hey Google” to your Google Home, the neural network will compare the sound of your voice to its previous analysis so we can understand if it’s you speaking or not. This comparison takes place only on your device, in a matter of milliseconds.
According to Google, multiple-user support was rolled out on April 20 in the US, and in the UK in the “coming months.”
