To say we have a “connected home” would be an understatement. My husband and I can control a majority of our appliances from apps on our phone.
If we want to check what’s in our refrigerator, no problem. If we want to change the temperature in a specific room, no problem. If we want to turn on the lights or change the color of the light in a room, no problem. If we want to take a look at our house through cameras while we’re away, no problem.
It’s seriously an amazing capability to be so connected to your home and technology just keeps getting better and better so we’re able to add on to our connected home often. Most recently we added Google Home to our collection of products and couldn’t be more happy with what it’s able to do for us. If you aren’t familiar, Google Home is a voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant. Having a Google Home has given us a whole new meaning to having a connected home.
All that is needed to get things started with Google Home is a simple “Ok, Google” or “Hey, Google” and the assistant is ready and at your service. We’ve had so much fun learning about Google Home and seeing everything it has to offer. Here are a few ways we are using our Google Home:
Enjoy some tunes. With a simple voice command, play tunes from services like YouTube Music, Google Play Music, Pandora, and Spotify. Enjoy even more compatible audio services by streaming directly from your phone to Google Home.
