The assistants in our living rooms are supposed to be as personal as they are on our phones, but it’s never really felt that way. Anyone who walks into our homes can say, “OK, Google,” or “Hey, Alexa” and get access to whatever they want, from upcoming appointments to the kind of music we like, even addressing them by your name. But a new feature rolling out to Google Home looks to add a personal touch to the impersonal home speaker.
Instead of being tied to a single account, Google will now let you set up multiple accounts on your Home device (up to six in all), so you’ll be able to get specific results from Google Assistant. And what’s more, it will recognize your voice so you won’t have to ask it to switch from a different account.
