Google Home Introduces Multi-user Functions With Voice Match

Google Assistant Now Offers Male Voice Option Too

This step will allow you to do multi-step routines and also trigger the device with phrases like "good morning".

If you're not a Nest owner, Google says the feature should work with over 1,000 smart home products from over 100 brands. The world is basically moving towards simplicity and ease. Amazon also has a kid-friendly account for the echo line.

Ever since the original Google Home launched, Google has marketed the device as the ideal home companion - a device that can help the whole family with searches, schedules, recipes, alarm clocks, music playback, et cetera. Both these products were announced only last week. By subscribing to the Nest Aware subscription, you will also be able to take advantage from the facial recognition feature.

For example, customers will be able to use the Assistant to view footage from their Nest Cam on a television with a connected Chromecast, just by asking a Google Home speaker to play it.

Gerrymandering case could reshape Texas' politics
Depending on the remedy that the court requires, the reverberations could be significant for redistricting after the 2020 census. The Supreme Court is taking up a case about political maps in Wisconsin that could affect elections across the country.

To access the male voice, users will need to go to the settings on their phone or in the Google Home app, then Preferences Assistant Voice. Phone call integration for the Home was actually announced on Google I/O 2017 all the way back to May, however, it finally rolled out months later without support for actually using your phone number: you could only use either your Google Voice or your Project Fi numbers, severely limiting your options if you were outside of the United States. I should note, however, streaming is not working for me with Android TV devices.

The new feature has been created to make a profile out of your voice's pitch and tone and differentiate it from the rest of the household.

Broadcast is a new feature that allows one Google Home device to broadcast a message to the other devices in the home.
