As mentioned above, a user may want to unlink his/her Google Account for any reason. Here, I would like to add one more genuine reason why users need to remove Google Account from Google Home. A user, who follows Indabaa, told me that he has changed his password of Google Account. The user had linked his Google Home with his Harmony account to enable voice command. When the user changed his Google Account password, he was not able to connect his Home with Harmony; and therefore, the user had to eliminate Google Account from Home and then link the account again.
