As you can see by browsing the application, Google Home is packed with so many options, preferences and other settings that it's pretty easy to get lost in it. This is why we first offer you here a small overview of the parameters relating to your Google account(s).

Very practical if you want to add a professional account to Google Home or to save the different accounts of your family members, an additional user account is also easy to synchronize. Switching from one account to another is done quickly, with just one click.
