Google Home and Home Mini are coming to South Korea next week

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Back in May, Google announced that it would be bringing its Home smart speakers to seven new countries, including South Korea. Now, the wait is almost over as the Google Store in Korea has began listing the Home and Home Mini as coming soon. The official launch should happen next week.

Google Assistant has supported the Korean language on smartphones for nine months now, but some Google Home support pages (1, 2) just began listing Korean as a compatible language also on Home speakers.

Google Home now understands room context, only adjusts nearby lights

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

Controlling smart home devices by voice can feel almost like magic. If you've got a Google Home and compatible connected lights, all you have to do is ask, and bam, illumination. Up until recently, any command involving smart lights translated to "do this to every light in the house;" not particularly intuitive. But lately, such commands have started applying to only the lights in the room you're currently in.

This is something a lot of users (including us) have been asking for for a while now.

[Deal Alert] Nab a free Google Home Mini with $119 purchase on eBay

Friday, July 13th, 2018

We've seen deal after deal after deal on Google's donut-sized smart speaker, the Google Home Mini, and they just keep coming. The latest: just about any order of $119 or more on eBay will net you a free Mini in one of two colors.

The online retailer offered a similar freebie deal in May, but this one doesn't require as large a purchase. To get your speaker, just add items that total up to $119 (anything except paper money, coins, or a few other excluded items) and the Mini to your cart.

Google Home can now read your imported and iCal calendars

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Multiple calendar support on Google Home has been available since last November, but the feature has been very limited. You couldn't choose your birthday or holiday calendars, ones created from a G Suite account, or imported calendars from URLs/iCal. That last part has recently changed, even though the support page hasn't caught up to it yet.

If you head over to your Calendar section in the Google Home app (under More settings), you should find a list of all your personal and shared calendars, plus the ones you've imported via a URL or iCal.

Google Home and Home Mini launch in Mexico

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

We knew it was bound to happen when Google Home added support for Mexican Spanish, but now the Home and Home Mini speakers have officially launched in Mexico and are available for purchase.

Although Google is listing both Home and Home Mini on its Store in Mexico, the two products can't be purchased directly from the site. Instead, when you tap on "Buscar Minoristas," you get a list of nine retailers you can get the two smart speakers from: Best Buy, Coppel, Costco, Liverpool, Mercado Libre, Office Depot, RadioShack, Sanborns, and Sears.
