Google Home as­sis­tant to al­low mul­ti­ple users

The Washington Post - - ECONOMY & BUSINESS - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Google has just added a key fea­ture to its smart-home hub.

Pre­vi­ously, Google Home was linked only to the ac­count of the per­son who set it up. Now, it will be able to han­dle mul­ti­ple ac­counts and tell to whom it is speak­ing, of­fer­ing per­son­al­ized an­swers.

This might also help cut down on un­wanted sur­prises. Google said the new fea­ture makes it so that “only you would be able to shop via Google Home.”

To set up the fea­ture, users have to hop on to the Google Home app, which should have a new op­tion for “multi-user” sup­port on any Google Home con­nected to your net­work. Own­ers of the de­vice can add up to six ac­counts, a com­pany blog post said.
