Google Home Introduces Multi-user Functions With Voice Match

Google Teams With Nest To Make Your Smart Home More Dynamic

Google follows Amazon with multi-step smart home routines and kid-friendly accounts

We'll have to try it all out when the functionality goes live. If it doesn't recognize, you can ask Google Home to show you the stream on your television. It also applies the setting to all your devices connected to the same Google account. As another touch, Google has included a Find My Phone system on the Google Home based on the user. However, this feature (like many others) was limited to the United States. Earlier, Spotify voice commands were exclusively available only on the Google Home smart speaker.

These new integrations will function best with Nest products.

This news also comes as Google moves away from Groove and partners with Spotify. To send a broadcast, you just need to say "OK Google, broadcast" followed by the message you want the Google Home to speak out.


The quality of cognition has also been improved for the Google Assistant, with some 15-odd million voice samples being used to train it.

This feature, while it's actually something really basic, can have many different utilities: you can use a broadcast for telling your friends something in another room, you can use one for waking up your children in the morning, and a lot more! Let's take a look at some of the more significant improvements to Google's own AI assistant announced at the Made By Google event. I should note, however, streaming is not working for me with Android TV devices. It can even turn up the volume of your phone before pinging it and even bypasses a silent ringer mode. Now available on nearly all of Google's different devices and platforms, not to mention integrating with third-party platforms, it has the potential to become what pundits and even conspiracists have been looking for: Google OS. How it will all work in practice, we'll have to wait and see.
