Google says that multi-account support in Google Home will start rolling out today in the U.S. And it will expand to the U.K.in the coming months.

However, it doesn't make everything alright for Google Home as its performance has not been that impressive. Rumors that Alexa was going to implement voice recognition have been swirling for some time, but it appears that Google beat them to it this time around.

In order to set up the device for shared account use, Google is asking owners to look out for a card that says "multi-user available" within the latest version of the Homeapp.
Maybe this also opens up room for a feature that Google showed in its launch video at its I/O developer conference past year but also never launched: pro-active alerts. If your significant other asks the same question, Google Home will customize that result and read out an appropriate response. Being in a home with many people implied you either had to share stuff like records and accounts or get added Google Home speakers. Once you see yourGoogle Home in the list, select "Link your account". "We don't recommend that users rely upon voice identification as a security feature".
