Google Home's assistant can now recognize different voices
21 April 2017, 03:09 | Patty Hardy
Therefore, with today's update the Google Home can belong to six people. Those features didn't make much sense on a device that, while inherently communal, but could only recognize a single voice. To accomplish this you'll need to repeat the phrases "OK Google" and "Hey Google" several times apiece. So now, when you ask your morning commute, you'll get the info about your route and not your spouse's.
Google's voice-activated assistant can now recognize who's talking to it on Google's Home speaker. Google doesn't think the technology is necessary on phones because most of those devices are password-protected and are usually used by just one person.
Think you know a lot about smart speakers?
A personalized experience that combines unique voice signature with multi-user support would also directly attribute questions and answers within the My Activity area of the app, which shares the recorded audio clip and transcript of every question or exchange a user has with Google Assistant.

To set this up. look for a device card in the Home app that says " Multi-user is now available" or "Link your account".

Google explains: "So how does it work?"
With this feature Google Home will differentiate users on its voice and than it will show that person's schedule and more. It'll be ready to switch accounts and answer your questions, as well as anyone else in your household who has been added as a user. This isn't something Google has enabled the Home to do, despite owning the entire end-to-end ecosystem.
This feature is now rolling out for Google Home users in the US. This was made known today by Yury Pinsky, Product Manager Google Assistant in a blog post.
