Google Home multi-user support, Mastercard's biometric scannerThe biggest tech news of the day includes Google Home's new support for multiple users, Chrome to soon block bad ads and Mastercard's biometric scanner built into a credit card.
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now. Google's personal assistant device Google Home can now identify up to six different people just based on voice recognition alone. You'll need to train it in order for it to work properly, but once you do, Google Home will seamlessly switch between accounts depending on who's talking. Is something that Amazon's Alexa currently can't do. Speaking of Google, the Wall Street Journal says the company's popular web browser, Chrome, is about to roll out an ad-blocking feature for its desktop and mobile version that will remove advertisements that are deemed to provide a less-than-ideal web browsing experience. Of course Google also sells billions of dollars worth of ads each year as well. Finally MasterCard has said they developing a new biometric credit card that can scan and store up to two fingerprints on. On the card itself. The new card is currently being tested in South Africa. It could reach the US by next year. You could stay up to date with the latest by downloading the CNET Tech Today app in the Apple or Google Play Store.
