Google announced multi-user support for Google Home earlier today, but it's only launching in the U.S. right now. For an assistant such as Siri, which lives on devices used by just one person, multi-account support isn't as important.
Earlier this month, a report suggested, that Google Home would soon support multiple users. Once you see Google Home, just click on "link your account", and you're ready to start training it. For example, if both you and your partner ask, "What's on my calendar", you should both receive your personalized answers once multiple accounts are linked and voices learned.
Google's voice-distinction feature, however, won't prevent unauthorized users from activating the assistant, as long as Home's microphone is turned on.
Google said Google Assistant on Google Home should recognise you going forward and be personalised to you - from music to news. Having multiple accounts would especially complicate such features, but hopefully future updates will make the device able to actually do more.
Google Home can now be trained to identify the different voices of people you live with.

Devastating new poll: Majority of Americans now say Trump can't keep promises

Nearly ten days ago we told you that multi-user support coming to the Google Home was inevitable.
Google's multi-user announcement follows a February report by Time indicating that Amazon is working on similar technology for its Alexa voice assistant. The voice recognition process takes a matter of milliseconds and is carried out on the Google Home device, he added.
Each person who adds their Google account will be asked to say phrases like "Ok Google" and "Hey Google" two times each.
When you open the app, look for a card that says "multi-user is available". To use this feature you should be on latest version of Google Home App. Those phrases will be analyzed by a neural network that can detect the characteristics of your voice.
Individual voice recognition represents a hugely compelling reason for people hoping to use the speaker as an assistant in shared living spaces.
