The Google Home Smart Speaker has Google Assistant built in and …
… nicely integrates with Google Calendar, Maps and Chromecast – the Home app is easy to use on both iOS and Android. It all integrates with Google Assistant, Google’s answer to Siri and Alexa, so it gives you personalized answers.
And just like the Amazon Echo the Home can also control your smart home gadgets or send music and video to your TV and speakers. Unlike Alexa, the Home can support up to six different user accounts, offering personal responses to questions about calendars and traffic. The Home will remember answers to your previous questions to better answer you in the future.
The top of the Home will respond to touch. Move your finger clockwise or counterclockwise for volume, tap to start or stop the current music stream, or long-press to give the Home a command without saying the wake words, “OK, Google,” or “Hey Google.”
Google Home works well as a smart home controller “Hey, Google, turn on the lights.” will turn on any lights in the Home app corresponding to “lights” and can be a group of lights if that’s how you configured it.
