5 things you can do with the new Google Assistant

The move will allow Google to build out a model in which advertisers can attribute voice searches on Home to specific users, allowing platforms like Google AdWords to target ads and Google Analytics to track back and tie together each specific consumer to the device.

Google says Home will be able to answer personal questions for topics like your schedule, shopping lists, news and podcasts, photos, information about your commute, your calendar and Uber account. In other words, they can't tell if I'm giving it a command or you're giving it a command. Googles voice-activated assistant can now recognize whos talking to it on the Googles Home speaker.

There are many benefits to such hands-free control; you don't have to get out of bed to turn the light off, for example, nor do you have to walk across the room if you're busy doing something else.

Adding up to six different voices, especially if those voices are part of the same family and sound similar, makes profile authorization increasingly complicated. This won't solve the "Burger King" problem of commercials being able to trigger the Google Home through your television. So if you ask "What's my day like?" Each person can download the Google Home app and complete the set up process from their own device.

Despite the technological advance, Google's voice-distinction feature won't prevent unauthorized users from activating the assistant. Home owners can add up to six accounts, according to a company blog post. "This comparison takes place only on your device, in a matter of milliseconds".

The update is rolling out to all U.S. Google Home users and will expand to the United Kingdom, where Google Home only recently launched, in the coming months. But Google says in its blog post that it will reach United Kingdom in coming months.
