-I can easily set up my own voice/google account with the mini and it recognizes my voice (mostly, more below). I was told i could set up multiple users. I want to add my kids voices as well and want it to recognize them by voice/name. In the instructions on how to do so, I should get a blue banner when in the google home app, on the device card screen. I do not: Your text to link here...
Do my kids need there own Google account to be able to add their voices? They are young and i'd prefer not to have to create an account for them. Their school accounts are moderated and won't work.4. In the top right corner of the app Home screen, tap Devices . Find the device card of the Google Home you'd like to link to your voice.
5. From the device card, tap the blue banner labeled Multi user is now available or Link your account.
-The mini often doesn't hear my voice (or my kids voices) and doesn't respond. I thought it was supposed to hear "OK google" from a good distance. My kids are now walking right up to it and speaking annoying loud to get it to comply.
-Can the tell the mini to start an app on my android box? (all on the same network) Is there a way to create commands and then just say the command name and it will execute? i.e. I create a command that starts the mixcloud app on my Android box called "command 1". "OK Google, command 1" to execute.
-I have a semi smart Vizio TV which has a youtube app. I have a PS4 with youtube. I have an android box with youtube. I can't figure out how to connect any of them to the mini. Right now there is no default video player.
I'm hoping the mini gets better as right now it isn't doing much but telling us some jokes and traffic/weather.
