Hi

We have three of these in the house each one tied to a separate users phone/spotify account
Is there away of filtering out the other two, for example mine is in the master bedroom, if i talk to it, my daughters device in her room reacts, as well as mine She is not too pleased about that, she has no taste in music

Is everyone using their own Google account on each device? Have you thought about tying them all together and making a "Family Account". This way no 2 devices every activate together.

https://families.google.com/families

I have 6 Google devices and many times the WRONG ONE will activate (so annoying... standing next to the living room one and the kitchen responds) but never more then one.
If you want to keep every one separate I don't think there is any way around this happening.

all three are connected to individual accounts, we are looking at a feature for advanced voice recognition, meaning my device will only react to my voice etc etc/ I have that set up on my device but need to get daughter to try on hers so that my voice does not get recognized by her device

That's why I asked about family accounts. You can then train Google to recognize each voice. You're really missing out on some cool features by not doing a family account.
Broadcasting and Using all speakers to play music together being 2 that I love.

Hit a snag, seems the family account allows up to six users to use any given device, so long as its not in use. It can be personalized through voice recognition to allow my daughter to play her music but it means I cannot play music on my device at same time. Its been suggested elsewhere that we need three separate Home Accounts, as if we were in three separate houses

So we simply had to move all three to rooms where voice activation wasn't heard by the other two, seeing as how we only really use them for music, that works

Ill have to test this. Do you have a family Spotify account, too, or is everyone using their own?

We are all using our own. We set up a family one only to discover we could all use any given device and personalize the system so if it were my voice it would use my Spotify account and if it were my daughter it would be her google music account. Which is great, however we could not get both going at same time
