How do you get the most out of your Harman Kardon Citation One with Google Home?
Settings and tips
Once you've downloaded the app, click 'Add' and then click 'Add new device'. Go through the setup and add a new house if you don't have one yet. With the tips below, you can get the most out of your Harman Kardon speaker with the app.
Tip 1: set your sound.
Tip 2: use the voice assistant.
Tip 3: connect multiple devices via Google Home.
Tip 1: set your sound
Because Harman Kardon doesn't have its own app (yet), you need to connect the speaker via Google Home. Unfortunately, this means that you can't manually set the Citation One with the so-called equalizer. The advantage of Google Home is that you get Google Assistant. This way, you can use your voice to control the speakers.
Tip 2: use the voice assistant
Once you're in Google Home, you can access the endless world of Google Assistant. Simply say 'Hey Google' and ask about today's weather, traffic, or your calendar. Do you also have smart lights or thermostats? If so, you can also operate them via a simple voice command. You can read more examples of the voice assistant in the article below.
Tip 3: pair multiple speakers via Google Home
You might want to expand your speaker with a soundbar. Or you want to pair multiple speakers to create a stereo pair or a multi-room setup. This way, you can listen to a room-filling sound in every room of the house. You pair the speakers in the Google Home app. First, you install both speakers separately. Then, click on one of the 2 speakers to pair it. Now, press the 'Settings' icon and your current house. From then on, you have the option to pair the 2 speakers and name the pair.
