Recently, I have been enjoying the benefits of Siri. When I want to know if a store is open, the date a movie was released or confirm information my friends and I are discussing, I ask Siri for the answer.
We have Google Maps, Google Search, Google Mail and Google Earth and now, we welcome Google Home & Assistance into our homes to assist us with our day to day tasks. With a built in speaker and an ability to search Google directly, Google Home is definitely an asset to ones home environment.
Google Home allows you to control many aspects of the home from a central panel / device. For example, you and tell her what to do - from suggesting a specific playlist gets playing in a room, to changing the time of events in your calendar to listening to notifications. You have the ability to direct Google Home to text people, reply to emails, share and show you information (on your living room TV for example).
Once 'Ok Google' is said, the device activates and attempts to complete whichever action you've given it.
Assistant has over 10 years of language processing in its database, and knows 70 billion facts. If you ask Assistant something it doesn't know, it will search Google until it is able to provide you with an answer.
If you happen to miss all or some of the response given, you may say 'repeat that' within a short time frame and Assistant will repeat the last answer for you.
Google Home gives you the ability to:
Track package locations
Receive traffic updates and route suggestions
Receive any information you would search in Google for
Receive email and phone notifications
Turn lights on in selected rooms
Play music in selected rooms
Has a built in speaker (plays from YouTube, Google Play Music and Spotify for example)
Customizable - can change standard grey fabric out and swap with a different colour or shade of metal
Cord tucked into the back underneath device
One button - to select mute or un-mute the device
