Smart home assistance 101
Google Home is a smart speaker that works with simple voice-commands that allow you to ask Google questions or control some smart home devices.
It has been designed to make everyday tasks effortless, like getting the weather report before you leave the house, calling an uber hands-free or adding pantry items to your shopping list.
Google Home also connects to compatible smart devices around the home to automate actions like turning the lights off before bed and streaming music or movies.
