Google Home is Google’s answer to Amazon’s Echo. It’s a voice-activated smart speaker.
If you have an Android phone, you may have used “OK Google” to activate it, then start asking it to do things like “Navigate to Costco” or “Remind me to call home in an hour” or “Set timer”, etc.
It’s a useful feature in a phone and now you can have that feature around the home too.
Once plugged in, you can get answers to questions like “What’s today’s weather forecast?”, “How’s the traffic”, etc.
You can get it to stream videos if you’ve Chromecast, or play music, or control your Nest thermostat.
The set includes 2 Google Home speakers, and 2 AC power adapter.
I do like the “OK Google” feature in the phone but I’m not sure if we need it in the house. What do you think? Do you have Amazon Echo or Google Home?
