A helpful home is a private home.
Protecting your privacy starts with one of the world’s most advanced security infrastructures, which we build directly into all Google products so that they’re secure by default. The built-in security in your Google Account automatically detects and blocks threats before they ever reach you, so that your personal information is always secure.

We build privacy tools that keep you in control.
Control your Google Assistant activity, privacy settings, information and personal preferences. See your activity, delete it manually or choose to delete it automatically. Control your privacy on Google Assistant with your voice. Ask questions like, 'Where can I change my privacy settings?' to get answers to the most common privacy and security questions.

I love this app

It is soo good and I spent a lot of money for a good reason it helps me with exams and texts. it is absolutely epic and the lights are really cool ,the music is cool , everything about it is fun! I had soo much fun setting it up and it only took an hour it is pretty and white which I love !!!it is soo useful and my on my iPhone X the weather is sometimes wrong but on my google home mini it is always right ! and I think if you are looking for a google home get the mini google home I hope that you have a good experience with your google home, and I think they should get updates, but it is still cool I have a smart tv in my room , and the google home was easy to set up on a flat screen soo I don’t know how it is on smaller tv cause my house only has flatscreens, and we all have iPhone Xs so I don’t know about other phones. I had a pretty good time with mine my brother sister mom and dad have a google home each and a family one. I don’t have to go up and down stairs because now it is in my room!!! And you all should by it!!!!! If you want to ask about stuff you can and also google is nice not like Siri if I ask her about my background she says “well you are Spanish Italian Greek American and born and live in America” if I say what is my age she says “ 18” if I say what is my name she says “ kristina” and it is all true!!!!!!! So hope u get your own google home mini and I do not want to sound like a show off.

Very Disappointing

App takes a very long time to download even when I have a full Wi-Fi connection and at least 10G of storage available. I recently purchased a Google Home Mini and I am also disappointed with how the app will not connect, and keeps saying “Something Went Wrong”. I tried multiple times reloading the app, connecting and disconnecting, turning on and off but nothing seems to work. The app also wont show my Google Home Mini as a device, nor will it show Chromecast as a device. I’ve given it 2 stars as it is fantastic WHEN IT WORKS! My chrome cast will also not allow any other devices to connect to it, even when i have completely disconnected from it. Very disappointed with how everything is. I have also seen other reviews stating the same problem. Google, It’s over to you.

Disappointing

This app although sporting a nice layout is beyond frustrating. I have two Google nest minis which I received from my mobile Phone provider as a gift. I should have declined the offer! Set-up is easy enough to navigate, but time and again these nest mini devices drop out and stop responding so I am forced to factory reset and do the whole dance again and again. Menu after menu of settings to tweak and they always seem to double up the same controls or settings info and scatter it across the app in odd spots. I set it up, functions ok. I do not use these devices daily for chit chat or performing tasks via assistant. I simply want the speakers paired and ready to play music when required. But the time the mood strikes to stream some music the connection has inevitably crumbled again and I receive the dreaded “sorry something went wrong message yet again”. It takes all my self control not to hurl these Google devices at a wall!!!! The software continues to show the now bricked devices in the list with no way of deleting them as it can’t find them. So I delete the app reset the devices and install as new. For a technology super power Google’s Home app, along with these useless home assistant devices seem to be laughable at best. So you can basically track where I am any time you like but you can’t find your own devices in my living room?
