Users of a smart speaker or device with a built-in Google Assistant can now use a guest mode. This can be done via a simple voice command, and locks the device against curious visitors. When guest mode is turned on, searches and questions will no longer appear in the history on your Google account. This has been disabled by default since August last year, but can be useful for people who have enabled it via opt-in. In that respect, the guest mode is similar to an Incognito mode, although the speaker must still be connected to a Google Account.
For example, once enabled, guests will not be able to see or hear personal agenda items and reminders. Basic functionality such as playing music, setting timers and answering questions will still work, however. You can switch off guest mode via voice recognition.
The new feature is not to be confused with the guest mode that Google removed from Google Assistant almost a year ago. This made it possible to cast content from users who were not on the same Wi-Fi network to a Google Home, Nest or Nest Hub, but that feature was removed and is only accessible for Chromecast devices.
