We鈥檙e six months into the release of the聽Google Home,聽and while the reviews are still pretty dang good, one mega frustration for lots of people is the gadget鈥檚 inability to tell one person from another. Basically, the last thing聽you want is for the digital assistant to spill聽your schedule to anyone who asks.聽But worry no more, friends; the Home will now recognize you and anyone else in your house (up to six people) as separate entities.

In order to get this all set up, make sure you have the latest version of the Google Home app on your phone. When you open the app, you may see聽a card that says 鈥漨ulti-user is available.鈥 If not, tap聽the Devices icon in the top right.

Choose your Google Home from聽the list and tap 鈥淟ink your account.鈥

Now you can teach your Assistant to recognize your voice, similar to how Siri learns when you first set it up.聽Now聽your device can tell you聽your name,聽your favorite color, etc. based on hearing聽your voice. It can also tell you about your day, give you news and podcasts, commute information, differentiate between Uber accounts, and more.

Some features will require you to聽define聽your preferences within the app, but it won鈥檛 take long, and when you鈥檙e done you鈥檒l have an ultra personalized household helper.
