Google Home -- the company's voice-controlled smart speaker that plays music, searches Google (GOOG) and lists recipes -- can now tell the difference between you and others based on voice.

Axar.az reports that as of Thursday the square, cylindrical device will now recognize partners, roommates, kids and guests who come to visit. now supports multiple accounts. Also, Google Home users can now create up to six different accounts on their devices.

So when you say the trigger phrases "OK Google" or "Hey Google," the Home will listen for who is asking and provide answers based on your voice. For example, Google Assistant will know what's on your calendar, what your reminders are and what your commute looks like.

It's a helpful update for users who live in multi-person homes, and the feature gives Google a boost over Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) in personalizing virtual assistants, as the Echo still doesn't have voice recognition.

To learn your voice, Google Home will ask you to speak the key phrases that "wake up" the device. Technology embedded in the Google Home analyzes different vocal characteristics, pinpointing what makes your voice different from other people's.
