Voice Match and media on shared Google Nest or Home devices

A Google Nest or Home speaker or display is often shared among household members. When each person in your household uses Voice Match, all of you can enjoy a more customized media experience.

When you set up Voice Match on a shared speaker or display, you can do things like:

  • Choose your own default music services.
  • Get a personalized music experience based on your listening history, liked songs and other details of your past interaction with the music service.
  • Control your own private library for the music service, which allows you to access your saved songs and playlists.
  • Can ask to play recommended YouTube videos or some TV shows or movies from a linked streaming service, which allows you to continue playback from your last saved spot.

Voice Match setup on displays for someone under the age of 13

A member of your home who is under the age of 13 can also use your display to set up Voice Match with their parent's help.

For your child to begin Voice Match setup, they should say "Hey Google, learn my voice" to your display. From there, they can select their Google Account on your display (or link their account to your display if they haven't already) and continue setup.

Your child needs to ask for your permission to enroll in Voice Match. Voice Match setup will ask you to sign in to your Google Account to give parental permission for your display to recognize your child's voice.

Your child will then teach the Assistant how to recognize their voice. After, your child will need your help once more to opt-in or opt-out of saving audio recordings.
