How to set up Google Home with multiple users

Google can differentiate between up to six Google accounts, making it easy for the whole house to use!

Google Home works by recognizing your voice, letting you listen to music, add items to your shopping list and even check the day's news. With multi-user support, that goes a step further allowing up to six different accounts to link to a single Google Home. This means that every account can receive personalized responses from Google Home to help them on their day.

We've got the details on using Google Home with multiple users here!

Note: Multi-user support is only available in the U.S. and the UK at the moment.
