Apple SVP Federighi: Touch ID was not intended for multiple users

One difference between Touch ID and Face ID (besides the obvious fact that one is a fingerprint sensor and the other is a facial recognition system) is that the former inadvertently supports multiple users, while the latter does not.

Google Home app update shows multiple user accounts may come soon

One of the more annoying things about Google Home in what we got at launch compared to what we saw in the prerelease videos is that Home was tied to one specific Google account. Of course, the annoyance of that is somewhat limited since Home also can’t create calendar entries or do any messaging, so the effects of a single account end up being more related to the searches, music and videos that end up in your history, coloring your future recommendations.
