As a voice assistant, Google Home is supposed to make your life easier. Here are five of the most useful commands to try. To get the most pertinent or important information of your day, ask Google to tell you about your day or simply say “Good morning”. It tells you the time, the weather, the traffic, any appointments you might have, your calendar for the day, as well as the news for the day. You can customize the information you receive each morning under the app for Google Home.
If you want to make a new recipe for dinner, say “OK Google, “How do I make tzatziki?” It will read you the ingredients of the recipe as well as the directions. If you miss a step, you can just ask Google to repeat it. With the help of ifttt.com, Google Home can help you find your phone if you lose it. You can log into the website and tell the Google Assistant to call your phone.
Another feature of Google Home is its ability to throw content to your cast enabled devices in your home. It can help you play music, movies, and TV shows. All you need to do is to add your cast enabled devices to your list under the Google Home app.
If you have a song stuck in your head, but you don’t know the name of it and want to hear it again, all you need to know is a few verses of the song and Google Home will help you find it. What a handy tool!
