What is Google Home?
Google Home is a Wi-Fi speaker that also works as a smarthome control centre and an assistant for the whole family. You can use it to playback entertainment throughout your entire house, effortlessly manage every-day tasks, and ask Google what you want to know.
How does Google Home work?
Music and video playback
Because Google Home is a Wi-Fi speaker, it can stream music directly from the cloud. Google said it will deliver rich bass and clear highs - all from a compact form factor. With it you can access songs, playlists, albums, artists, and podcasts from your favourite music services just by asking with your voice. Or, if you prefer, you can send music from your Android or iOS device through Google Cast.
That last bit is important because, with Google Cast support, you'll be able to use Google Home to control other connected speakers in your home. You'll even get multi-room playback, meaning you can add one or more Google Home devices to a group of speakers in order to blast tunes throughout your house. But that's not all: Google Home will let you control your video content.
Let's say you want to watch the latest episode of Jimmy Fallon or some sort of cat video on YouTube. Just issue a voice command to Google Home, and the content will appear on your TV (again, thanks to Google Cast support).
Google Home can be a control centre for your entire home, because it has access to Google Assistant (see below). It will let you do the basics like set alarms and timers and manage to-do lists and shopping lists. It will also connect your smarthome and support popular network systems. That means you will be able to control smart lights, switches, doors, and Google's own Nest products.
Google plans to work with developers so you can control things beyond the home too, such as booking a car, ordering dinner, or sending flowers to a loved one. And the best part is you will be able to do this with just your voice.
Speaking of your voice, Google Home will let you ask Google anything. You can ask for the weather or check facts on Wikipedia. You will have access to Google's 17 years of search experience. That allows you to ask specific questions such as "How much fat is in an avocado?" or "What is Draymond Green's jersey number?" Those types of questions would stump Amazon Echo, but not Google.
Because Google Home has Google Assistant, you can be conversational and ask follow-up questions like "Where did he go to college?" Google Home will be able to connect the "he" pronoun to your previous question about Draymond Green or whoever in order to serve up an accurate answer. You can even ask complex stuff like "What was the US population when NASA was established?"
Google said Google Home will give you immediate answers each time. Also, Google Home can read the relevant part of webpages back to you.
Which services does Google Home support?
At launch, Google Home works with YouTube Music, Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music, TuneIn, and iHeart Radio. With support for these services, you can ask, "OK Google, play that Shakira song from Zootopia." Without having to name the song, Home can figure it out and play it from your favourite app. Thanks to Google Assistant and its machine-learning capabilities, Google Home knows you and your preferences.
Also at launch, Google Home works with Nest, SmartThings, Philips Hue, and IFTTT, which means you'll be able to control these select smarthome devices and activate your IFTTT recipes using the speaker. Google Home also acts as a Chromecast Audio receiver.
