Ratings and Reviews
I love the APP! I use it everyday and have seamlessly integrated it into our daily lives. I have three google minis, two google home hubs’s, one google home, one google max and one audio casting devices for outdoor speakers. I like the progression I’m seeing on my hubs. I look forward to the days where I can see and do more with them. The mini’s and home work well and have decent sound. I wouldn’t mind seeing or paying for an upgraded mini with better sound for music around the house. I am slightly disappointed with my Max though. The sound is good, not S loud as I thought it would be. I can never seem to link my Bluetooth to it without going in the settings app and linking there unlike all the others only requiring a voice command. I would probably return it but I’m sure I’ve passed the limits to return. It’s still my primary option centered in the hub of my home and usually takes the majority of commands which makes it more difficult when it’s not properly working. I’d love any advice on how to fix the issue if possible.
Thank you for your time, I’m a happy costumer!
Google Home Facelift A Success!!
The first iteration of the Google Home app was fine for launch, but there are certain features and refinements that were missing, then they made it a little convoluted by switching you back and forth between Home and Assistant for some reason, but this new version is exactly what I'd expect from Google. The UI/UX is phenomenal and the features you actually expect are right at your fingertips when you open the app, such as the ability to see every device and manage their basic operations with one click and not having to dig through various apps to target such devices manually. The addition of pairing a Bluetooth speaker has been long awaited but also the ability to make a speaker group and simultaneously play music through all of them is another feature I had been waiting for as someone who has speakers throughout the house.
Google, you truly nailed it with this update and I really hope the majority of the updates are minor fixes and routine maintenance, because as it stands, this app feels polished and feature rich!
You learn more by testing
I honestly wasn't expecting much since I stayed at a home that had Alexa. I genuinely love the Google home so much. It's easy to maneuver and I like that it resumes from where you left off if you accidentally stop it.
As for improvements, I'd love more options for news (especially a astrology and astronomy and Broadway based one) and to be able to read the full description of each news option somehow. Perhaps a transcript of the news as well to read along. I'd like it if you could go through your past questions/requests to the Google home as well just so I don't have to repeat myself if it speaks too fast. For lingists I think it would be neat if you could do a bilingual option (I know you can do multiple languages but it wouldn't answer to me when i spoke English even though it was the primary language). It would be nice to practice other languages with the Home's help. Or an option to put topics you want to stay up-to-date on and it will Google search and read the newest articles.
