Google has added support for up to six users to its virtual assistant device, Google Home.

That’s a huge leap in the world of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
It solves many problems related to voice-activated virtual assistants, while also creating some serious privacy concerns.I have three Gmail users in my house who all access the same Google Home device, which is linked to my account.
It’s used for playing music, watching videos through Nvidia Shield, helping with recipes, asking questions, checking appointments, and other such tasks.Here’s the problem: I hate it. My Google search history and YouTube playlists are all messed up.
It’s full of queries by my wife, guests, kids, and our au pair. My private appointments are accessible to anyone who can ask for them.

Anyone can activate my Google Home device by yelling from outside the window and taking control of connected devices like oven, lights, and door lock (I was smart enough to not install smart locks). Worst of all, Google is not learning anything about me as it’s being used by everyone.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
