Google rolls out fix for setting alarms and reminders on Google Home speakers

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Asking your Google Home smart speaker to set an alarm or reminder is a rudimentary use case for those devices. But it seems some users recently found that their Google Home failed to sound alarms and reminders that were set. Now Google is saying that a fix has been rolled out and those functions are working again.

A few users in the Google Home Help Forum brought up the issue, saying they used their voice to set alarms or reminders on their Google Home and received an audible confirmation.

Tip: Ask Google Home to find your missing phone

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Google's Find My Device service offers an invaluable tool for tracking down a missing phone or tablet, combining GPS positioning with an audible alert to let you quickly locate your missing hardware. And with tools to remotely lock or erase your device, it also helps ensure your data's safe until you get your hands back on your gear. But for as useful as it can be, you still need access to some device in order to perform the search, and especially if you keep your phone and laptop in the same bag, that can be a problem.

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Google Home users know that their smart speakers can help keep them entertained, or control their connected-home devices, but what about when you've had enough stimulation and just want to lie back, relax, and really zen the heck out? Well, with the right voice commands your Google Home can soon be helping you chill out to the sounds of waves crashing on the beach, a gentle spring shower, or even some neutral white noise.

Google Home gets support for Saavn and Gàana music streaming services in India

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Google has just launched English support in India, but that's not all. It's also rolling out support for a few region-specific music services. Users of Saavn and Gàana can plug their accounts into Home and make them a default music streaming service. It only takes a few taps.

Saavn and Gàana are both popular services in India, but they're available to users worldwide. They both seem to focus on regional Indian music, but there's international content as well.

Google Home can now pair with Bluetooth speakers

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

The Google Home family of devices have built-in speakers of varying quality, but you might have some nicer Bluetooth speakers around the house. Now, you can have Google Home stream audio directly to these devices. After pairing your Home with the speaker, you can control playback and even adjust the volume.

To pair a speaker, open your Home app and head into the device settings. Connecting to a Bluetooth speaker is part of the "preferred speaker" setup (previously spotted on Reddit).

Google Home now speaks Italian, indicating that it will soon be sold in Italy

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Currently, the only languages supported by Google Home are those for the countries where the smart speaker is officially available. However, Italian has been spotted as an option, meaning that Google should soon be bringing the Home and Home Mini to Italy very soon.

Italian is already supported by Assistant on phones, Actions on Google, and Allo, but not Home. First spotted by Italy-based site smartworld, this makes Italian the ninth available Assistant language for Google Home devices.

You can now set location-based reminders from Google Home

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Remember how long it took Google to make reminders work on Google Home? I won't bore you by recounting the whole sage, but the wait was substantial. At least adding new reminder features isn't taking too long. We heard some weeks back about location-based reminders in Assistant for phones, but the Home release was "in the coming weeks." For once, Google actually meant "in the coming weeks." It's live right now on a Home near you.

10 Stupidly simple things I wish Google Home would do

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

I love my Google Home(s). I've been using two of them for nearly a year in my apartment, and they were recently augmented by a couple of JBL Link speakers with Assistant and a Google Home Mini at work. I call upon them frequently throughout the day to ask about the weather, play music, set reminders and calendar events, control my smart home devices, and more. And I have spent countless hours testing and checking everything they can do, which culminated in a very long but super detailed Google Home tutorial that I suggest you read.

Google Home calling is now live in the UK

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

You might think making phone calls with Google Home would be a basic function available from launch, but you'd be wrong. VoIP calling eventually came to users in the US and Canada last August, but it's eluded other regions until now. At Google's October 4th hardware last year the UK was promised similar functionality — due to go live later in the year. It's a bit late, but UK Google Home users are finally able to make hands-free calls as of today.
