Google Home app is not exactly known for a seamless experience since the earlier versions were riddled with several bugs. However, lately, the updates have been successful in addressing issues (for instance the sloppy Chromecast connections). Until now Google Home didn’t offer multiple account support which meant that only one device was authorised to control the Google Home which kind of doesn’t make sense. In the recent version of the app, however, Google is serving a card that says “Multiple users now supported.”
The multiple user’s support was apparently something on the cards and now some of the users have been seeing this message on their Googe Home app. The card further explains how anyone in the home can get a personalised experience via the Assistant on Google Home. That said the feature is not live and doesn’t appear despite updating the app. Perhaps the card was a classic case of “Jumping the Guns” but again it surely emphasises on the possibility that the multiple user accounts support will soon come to the app.
With this update, Google Home can access the data from the Google Assistant on your phone and start offering the recommendations accordingly. You may also be able to set alarms, personal reminders and create calendar events. This is a substantial step in fortifying the Google Ecosystem, the Google Assistant and Google Home working in tandem with multiple accounts will allow the people to use the skills it has to offer. An APK teardown last month had revealed that users will be able to access alarms and timers set on Google Home and it had also suggested the oncoming multi-user profiles.
