Google Home review
Google Home is a separate app — a sort of virtual control room — for managing and controlling a range of Google devices such as cameras, lights, TVs or speakers to make your life easier and more vibrant.
What Is Google Home All About?
Over the past few years, characterized by the technological boom, Google Nest has introduced a range of smart home devices meant to eliminate any possible discomfort. Among them are:
- Chromecast devices (digital media players);
- Home security systems;
- Smart speakers;
With the help of the Google Home app, you can manage all the devices with only a few taps. Do you feel like watching Netflix or listening to some classical symphonies in dim lighting? Or maybe adjusting room temperature? Not an issue at all! There is no need to hustle anymore — the app is always there to suffice your needs.
You can keep track of frequently performed actions that are displayed on the home tab. The feed tab displays reminders and recaps your recent events. Parental control is also at hand to ensure that your kids do not abuse your kindness.
Before using the app, you need to set up your preferences — it’ll work accordingly. Also, make sure that your devices are all connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Otherways, you won’t be able to reap the benefits of the app.
Given that Google Home functions revolve around the Wi-Fi network, the necessity for internet connection and access to your Google account is out of the question. When it comes to mobile devices, for Android phones and tablets, you need Android 5.0 and 6.0 versions (or later) accordingly; for iPhone and iPad — iOS 12.0 (or later).
The app works perfectly fine with a great number of smart home devices. Whether it is a Chromecast player that supplies audio-visual material to your heart’s content, a Google Home speaker that is always at the ready to bate your curiosity or cameras to ensure your safety, this platform will equally serve its turn and save your time. Remember that some features may be limited or unavailable depending on where you live.
Sadly, the Google Home app is available only for Android and iOS users, though you can still run it on your PC if you have Chromebook or through Android emulators.
