Got your hands on a Google Home device? The first thing is to figure out where to place your Google Home in your house. Google Home speakers are small enough to fit in most everywhere in the house, but they can serve specific purposes in different rooms. Read up below to find out the optmial places to put your Google Home....
If you spend a lot of time in your bedroom, your Google Home should live there, where it can set alarms, playing music and control your air-conditioning. Maybe you like to cook, or your family generally congregates in the kitchen. In that case, your Google Home should live there, where it can set timers, answer cooking questions and control smart appliances. Here are 3 suggested places around your home that definitely need a smart speaker.?
1. Living Room
For most people, the living room is the place the first smart speaker should go as everyone can enjoy it. Whether it's for listening of music or controlling the lights or controlling the air-conditioning, the living room is a natural common area where your Google Home, Google Home Mini or Google Home Hub will likely get the most use.
In the living room, you can use Google Home, Google Home Mini or Google Home Hub and a Chromecast to show the weather or play YouTube or Netflix on your TV. You can even set the temperature on the thermostat to control your air-conditioning. During family gatherings, you can use it to play games such as trivia to foster family bonding.
For those with Google Home Hub, the killer feature is "ambient mode," allowing you to display photos from Google Photos. Like a screensaver, the function transforms the display into a slick digital photo frame in your living room.
You can even choose people you would like to showcase on the Hub Display. They should all be grouped by faces, and possibly names if you have previously tagged them in the Google Photo app.
If you are a cooking enthusiast who loves to hang out in the kitchen, your Google Home, Google Home Mini or Google Home Hub will be your ultimate cooking assistant!
A feature you will find most helpful in the kitchen is the timer function for your recipes. To set a timer, just say, "OK, Google, set a timer for five minutes."
If you are wondering the best recipe to cook up your ingredients, your Google Home will offer you recipe ideas. You can simply find and view recipes step by step instructions on Youtube and view the instructions directly from Google Home Hub’s screen.
Your Google Home can also convert units of measurements on the spot for you. If you need to know how many cups are in a gallon or how many milliliters are in a teaspoon, Say, "OK, Google, how many milliliters are in a cup?" or, "OK, Google, convert 3 cups to milliliters."
A Google Home won't just replace your old alarm clock, it will doubled up as a music player, podcast, audiobook player and news source. The Google Home has a feature called “My Day”, which will give you updates on traffic and weather, upcoming calendar events and flight information. If you have it set to do so, it will also play your preferred news when it's finished telling your personal update. To hear your My Day, just say, "OK, Google, tell me about my day."
If you like to fall asleep to nature sounds or white noise, the Google Home has a built-in function that turns it into a noise machine. For example, you can say "OK, Google, play forest sounds."
Forget to turn down the AC before laying down? Don't get up and adjust the thermostat or reach for your phone. Just tell your smart speaker to do it for you. The same goes for turning off the lights or locking the doors.
