Product Expert smart home hubs

The Google Home speaker plays your favorite music and is your hands-free help around the house. The speaker can be set up for each language and country. You get the most recent information about things such as the trains, the weather, and the news from the country that you've set. This isn't available for Belgium yet. You can give commands to play music or to dim your smart lights. Thanks to voice recognition, you can use the speaker with up to 6 people. First connect the speaker to AC power, then use Bluetooth to link it with the Google Home app on your smartphone via Bluetooth. Adjust settings such as the language of the speaker and the temperature display. Do you have Google Chromecast? If so, you can use voice control to stream videos to your television via the speaker and connect the speaker to other Google Cast supported speakers.

Note: The Flemish version of Google Home isn't available yet. This means you use the Dutch or French version in Belgium. When you ask Google Home questions about the news or the weather, you get answers that are about The Netherlands or France. The other smart options, such as controlling your lighting, thermostat, or your music, are available.

"Sounds and looks nice, but user experience needs work"

Roy | 4 December 2019

  • Pros:
    Better sound than the mini
  • Pros:
    Easy to setup
  • Pros:
    Looks nice
  • Con:
    Misunderstanding of voice commands
  • Con:
    Occasionally loses connection
  • Con:
    Google home integration can be sketchy

It's a decent upgrade over the home mini, but it sometimes just stops playing music when using Spotify. The voice commands and integration with Google Home can make you feel like you live in the future when it works, but too often it leads to frustration. This technology is clearly still in its infancy and still needs a lot of optimisation.

    Nothing

Love it, have two Sonos which appears a bit disappointing next too the Google home (except for the audio) as it needs to be reset each time it’s moved from a room & that “google lady” on the Sonos does not listen that well

  • Pros:
    Great sound
  • Pros:
    Nice features
  • Pros:
    Integrates with a lot of smart appliances
  • Con:
    Google needs to bring more features
  • Con:
    Doesn't always understand commands

I've been using Google Home for a while now, at the moment the best features were the animal sounds it makes which entertains our kids, plays music on demand, with great sound quality, and can control various items in the house such as the thermostat or the lights, which is great.

All in all a fun gadget to have.
