You can also tune an instrument: "OK, Google, tune my instrument" or "OK, Google, play an F sharp." (Note: If you don't specify "flat" or "sharp," you must say "note" after stating which note you want Google Home to play, such as "play an A note.")
Baking with Google Home 🍰
Enjoy baking during your June Holidays, with the help of your Google Home device! It can look up recipes and substitutions, and answer questions like, “How many tablespoons are in a cup?” For Google Home Mini and Google Home, the smart device will read you the recipes or answer your questions.
Whereas, for Google Home Hub. It gets more interesting! One interesting and incredibly useful function is how Google Hub handles recipes. You can get visual step-by-step instructions on the Google Hub’s screen by simply asking for how to make certain dishes. Similar to Google Home Mini and Google Home, Google Assistant reads out each instruction by step, letting you use your voice to advance further into the recipe or even skip ahead to specific points if you’ve moved on. It will also set countdown timers for you when required, measurement calculations when you need to convert things alongside translations and to do lists. It’s the ultimate kitchen assistant.
Music, Movies and Photos 📽
Google Home has been able to play music, movies and photos using Spotify, Netflix, Youtube and Google Photos. As long as you have a Chromecast connected TV, you can use your Google Home devices to play a holiday movie via Netflix on your TV or share your favorite Holiday photos with your friends and family on the big screen. Here are some useful commands:
