Google Home Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Google Home review: The Amazon Echo needs to watch out. Improvements to Google Assistant have made this a contender.

Great design ; Decent sound ; Reasonable price point ; Conversational assistant ; Easy setup

Limited smart home compatibility ; Speaker isn't very loud ; Needs to be plugged in at all times

Google Home is a powerful smart speaker, powered by the smartest voice assistant and a growing range of smart device support.

Google Home review

 

Google enters the voice-controlled assistant world, but has some catching up to do

Simple to use ; Unobtrusive design ; Works with Chromecast ; Multi-room capability ; Stereo pairing

Few apps ; Average sound ; Limited smart home capability ; No Bluetooth (but it's coming)

Google has arrived late to the voice-controlled assistant party, and has some catching up to do

Google Home review: does it beat Amazon Echo?

 

Unless you want a pub quiz mate or need integration with Google Music and Chromecast, you're better off asking Alexa

Cheaper and arguably more attractive than Echo ; Better at answering questions than Echo ; Built in voice control of Netflix and Chromecast

Less good as a music speaker than Echo ; Does less overall than Echo

Google Home review: A better voice assistant than Amazon Echo?

 

Google Home has and continues to mature since it first launched. If you don't mind waiting for its full potential, it's the voice-assistant speaker to get.

Good-looking design will integrate anywhere around the home ; Touch panel controls ; In-depth conversational and search-based results ; Supports up to six users

Less third-party app support than Amazon Echo ; Microphone pick-up limited when music is playing

Google Home has matured a lot since it first launch and continues to, so if you don't mind waiting for it to reach its full potential, then it's the voice-assistant speaker to get. It's good looking, great sounding and, it has the potential to be the...

Google Home review

 

Update 25/4/17: Google Home can now automatically switch between accounts thanks to voice recognition wizardry...

Looks classy, yet unobtrusive ; You can control your home and music like Tony Stark ; Search and translate functionality is brilliant ; Can now recognise multiple users by voice

Could sound better ; Play Music doesn’t support adding to your library/playlists ; You can’t add appointments, reminders, or send messages

Genius in some ways, and a dunce in others, Home, like the Echo, is on the cusp of true brilliance. We’re just not quite there yet.

Google Home review

 

We put the Google Home to the test.

Customizable base Massive song library Expanding hardware ecosystem

Missing Google’s own services Phrasing needs to be precise Google Cast support needs work

Wildly intelligent and supremely versatile in the ways in which it can be used, Google Home is a solid smart speaker. It's not as integrated with Google's own services as we'd like, and the Google Home has some room to improve in terms of audio...

The original Google Home is still the best, especially at its Echo-matching price of £89/$99. Here's our review of Google Home, the physical embodiment of Google Assistant.

Google Home prices slashed as Prime Day approaches

 

Save up to £100 on the entire Google Home smart speaker range at Argos and John Lewis

We’re not totally sure how long this superb sale on Google’s smart speakers will last, but the Philips Hue deal expires on 27 July, so we suggest you get a move on – before Prime Day steals your attention and your wallet.

Save £60 on a Google Home smart speaker

 

Build your smart home for less with this great saving on Google's hands-free smart speaker

For now, at least, John Lewis looks to have solved the latter problem. Make sure you don’t miss out.
