    Is multi-user supported on both Canadian English and Canadian French, or only on Canadian English?

      No, only Canadian English.

    • Samuel Dion (PuzzledSam)

      That’s unfortunate, but thanks anyways!

    ICYMI: Alexa devices now seem to support Canadian addresses, businesses, etc.

    Still no audio equalizer? I still can’t listen to music on Google Home in my apartment due to the overpowering and unchangeable bass levels.

    • Stephen B Morris

      That’s a good suggestion. But I’m curious, will it use the Google Play Music equalizer if you set it in app?

    Doesn’t Google Voice have to be in Canada for this to work? I thought we didn’t have access to Google Voice here yet?

      you’ve been able to make voip calls through various google services in Canada for years. the client in Gmail, through hangouts, etc.

      The one disadvantage to it is that the person receiving a call will see “unknown number” and not your phone number.

      Actually, in hangout (phone or tablet only) you can have the phone calls display your number. You just have to get the number verified through the app once.

      I’ve tried getting it working for years and it has never once worked for me. I figured it was a Canadian restriction.

      same for me, if i set my gh to french canadian if i set it in english canadian is totally fine.

    Multi-user isn’t really working as well as I thought for me. It never tells me about “my day”, particularly any meetings, events, I have in the day. Anyone else have it working?

    • Robin

      I think it has to do with me using a Google Apps account instead of a regular gmail account.

    Don’t forget bluetooth now works too!

    Ok, tested as working, Google Home calling is now working in Canada, I tried it, a buddy of mine tried it, no issues… works friggin’ awesome!

    • Stephen B Morris

      I concur. “Friggin’ Awesome”!

  • Pascal LeChuck

    is this me or if my google home is set in french canadian, i cant make a call?

    Google Home cannot read non English names from Google contacts. If your contacts are non English, you are out of luck.
