When talking to your Google Home, you'll no longer be just some anonymous voice. Specifically, Google Home can now recognize the difference between multiple voices once trained, and will take actions based on the voice it hears.
Though Google has not made any comment on this prospect, there is a possibility that this new feature could be the starting of incorporating some of Google Assistant's features like creating notes, reminders and events that are now missing on Home. The feature is launching today for Home users in the U.S., and should arrive in the United Kingdom in the "coming months", Google said.
To set it up, you'll need the newest version of the official Google Home app.
Google Home is addressing one of its most criticized features, adding the ability to differentiate up to six people by voice and serve them up their own, personalized results. So even if you don't create an account for your guests or your children, they'll still be able to ask it to do things such as answer questions, set timers, or play videos on a Chromecast. But a new feature rolling out to Google Home looks to add a personal touch to the impersonal home speaker. Previously, the voice-activated smart speaker could only be connected to a single account. Now that multiple accounts can be used at once, the Google Home is a much more of a family-friendly device.
Analysts Opinion on Price Target: NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)
The firm owned 41,898 shares of the computer hardware maker's stock after buying an additional 35,953 shares during the period. The stock now shows its YTD (Year to Date) performance of -6.86 percent while its Weekly performance value is 1.55%.
Users started noticing the change being rolled out a couple weeks ago. Whenever someone uses one of those phrases in the future to ask the Google Assistant a question, the Home device being addressed will check to see if that person is one of its recognized conversation partners.
Those of you with a husband or kids or a roommate will appreciate Google Home's latest update. "We're just getting started and we won't be ideal", the statement said.
The assistant will then ask you to say the phrases "Ok Google" and "Hey Google" two times each. With Google Home, often being a shared device, it can be tricky to balance privacy and personalization.
