Google Home is now a thing and it’ll change your place forever

Tech these days is pretty damned impressive. Lights go on and off without having to touch a thing, you can talk-to and order-from your fridge, your TV can record live broadcasts, all your gadgets can sync together to create seamless experiences, etc. The list goes on.

Now you can add Google Home to that list, the latest from the Google mothership, offering one hell of a seamless at-home experience that you didn’t know you needed ’til now. If the Google Pixel phone wasn’t enough, then this is sure to turn heads, allowing an Australianised way to incorporate the best of Google technologies into your most personal pf spaces that can actually understand you.

Google Homes speaks and understands Australian English, can control anything you have synced to the Home apps on your smartphone and can just simply operate as your own personal PA that’s always listening, always available and always on in the most convenient part of your home.

These are the 7 best bits about your new home buddy…

Google Home speaks ‘Strayan

With a distinctly Aussie voice, your Assistant on Google Home speaks and understands your language. Ask it for brekkie ideas or where the nearest servo is. You can also ask it what sound a Kookaburra makes, and it’ll cue the laughter we all know and love. And of course, they’ve hidden a few Aussie treats for you to discover along the way. Why not try asking your Assistant on Google Home “Are you going to Bonnie Doon?”

Get personalised help for your everyday tasks

Whether you’re stirring pots, matching socks or brushing hair, they know Aussie homes are busy ones. That’s why the Assistant on Google Home has been designed to help you get more stuff done when you have your hands full. With your permission, it will help with things like your commute, your daily schedule and more. And the best part? Up to six people can connect their account to one Google Home, so if you ask your Assistant to tell you about your day, it can distinguish your voice from other people in your family, and give you personalised answers. Just ask “Ok Google, tell me about my day” or say, “Hey Google, how long will it take to get to work?” and you’ll get up to speed on everything you need to know. It can wake you up in the morning (or let you snooze), set a timer while you’re baking, and more.

Turn up your tunes

Find the right beat for every occasion, whether you’re doing sunrise yoga, hosting a dinner party or having a dance-a-thon with your little ones. You can play songs, playlists, artists, and albums from your favourite music subscription services like YouTube Music, Google Play Music and Spotify.* With Google Home, we’re offering 6 months of YouTube Red for free to customers who are new to Google Play Music and YouTube Red**, so you can enjoy a premium YouTube experience, allowing you to listen to official tracks, albums, remixes and more – all completely ad-free.

Control your smart home

Google Home can help you keep track of everything going on in your home–you can control your lights, switches and more, using compatible smart devices from brands like Philips Hue and IFTTT. Just ask, and your Assistant will turn off the kitchen light. If you have a Chromecast, you can also use voice commands to play Netflix, Stan and YouTube on your TV or binge watch your favourite show. Enjoy Multi-room by grouping Google Home devices together (with Chromecast Audio or Chromecast built-in speakers too) to listen to the same song in every room.

A speaker designed for any room

Whether you’re hosting a dinner or a solo dance party, Google Home delivers crystal-clear sound and creates an enjoyable listening experience.  Plus, we designed Google Home to fit stylishly into any room. And you have the option to customise the base with different colours to reflect your home’s style.

It’s just the beginning

Your Assistant on Google Home will continue to get better over time, as we add more features. And soon, Google Home will be open to third party apps for the Assistant, giving you access to even more of your favourite services and content.

And there’s more

Google is also launching Google Wifi, giving you seamless internet coverage for homes of any shape or size. Some Wi-Fi routers haven’t always been built to support the increasing number of devices we use or high bandwidth activities like gaming or watching videos. Google Wifi is a connected system that replaces your current router to bring smarts, security and simplicity to home Wi-Fi to give you consistently strong coverage in your home.
