Google Home is here! Does it live up to the hype?

Google Home is a new hardware device by Google that uses the “Google Assistant” and artificial intelligence to power this smart speaker. It uses voice commands to look up information, control smart home devices, and do entertainment. Google Home might not be for everyone though, since many of the best features involve using it as a hub to control smart home devices, which not everyone has. It ties into your Google Account, so if you don’t use Google for everything, you’ll also get limited use. I think it’s a great competitor with Amazon Echo, another smart speaker, and Apple Siri, but which is best will depend on what eco-systems you use the most.

Does Thio pay for all hardware he reviews, or companies send him stuff for free, in exchange for YT review?

Shibby says:

how did you get the onscreen links to work on the phone? Is it just the new update to YouTube? I’m glad you specified! That’s cool

Red Woods says:

Without credit-debit-gift cards, you can NOT access Youtube Red music. Cheated!

Mario S says:

Netflix is now supported and works flawlessly. The Google play movies not working infuriates me though. I should be able to rent and playback movies on a Chromecast with this thing.. how does that even make sense??

Lachlant1984 says:

What do you think of Google Home in comparison to the Amazon Echo? I know you’ve reviewed that unit before. I know that Google Home has the whole context sensitive conversation thing which the Echo doesn’t have, but other than that what do you think of the 2 units in comparison to each other?

Tomas Trujillo says:

Chingatu tu madretu y luz

vacationboyvideos says:

the top of the unit should be a LCD or OLED touch screen!

Michael Hametner says:

Thanks for the review 🙂

Have you had any chance to check if it supports to play Spotify on another Spotify connect device?

The Re-Uploads Hub says:

watching this and having your model respond to his commands… XD

Dave Satay says:

So Google Home listens and records all conversations in your living room, 24/7, and people are PAYING for this? WTF?

Such a violation of privacy!

Sebastian Chavez says:

Can you set the google home to be an alarm?

This comment will be lost between all of these 300 comments. It will not reach 1000 likes and no one will respond to it, nor will ThioJoe respond to it even thought I am a big fan. May god bless you all!
