Multiple users now available on Google Home in the UK

When multi-user support launched for the Google Home back in April, the functionality was made available only in the US with the UK said to be “coming soon” in the next months. Now the wait should be over and multi-user support should be live in the UK as well.
A couple of Google Home support pages have been updated from, “This functionality is only available in the US. It will be coming to the UK soon,” to, “This functionality is only available in the U.S. and the U.K.” (As we’ve come to discover, for Google this means it’s available for those who have set US English or UK English as their default language, so it’s reliant on the language and not on where exactly you are and will thus work in other countries too.)
This means that you should technically see the multi-user setup card in your Google Home app and/or you should be able to set your Google Home as a shared device (as shown here) to allow others to connect to it as well. If those options aren’t yet live for you, they’re probably coming very, very soon.
