[Deal Alert] Google Home Mini 3-pack is $100 ($15 off) at Costco

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

As a pleased owner of a Google Home Mini, I often find myself wondering why I didn't buy one or two more of these tiny smart speakers to scatter around our apartment unit. When I ask my wife what she thinks of getting some companions for our lone Mini, she aggressively asks "Why?" — and, well, that's the end of that. But now Costco is giving me some new ammunition, thanks to a deal offering members the chance to purchase a Google Home Mini (charcoal or chalk) three-pack for just $99.99, which is $15 off of the normal going price.

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.

Google Store launches in Singapore with Pixel 2XL, Google Homes, Chromecast, and more

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Buying Google's gadgets can be very difficult if you live in a country where they're not officially available. Overpriced black markets, questionable imports, and difficulty of finding support are some of the issues you face. But after today, that won't be the case for Android and Google fans in Singapore as the official Store is now launched in their country.

The Google Store in Singapore carries 6 products so far, but they're arguably the most interesting.

Google thinks the Home Mini is a ‘Vintage Retro Biscuit Tin’

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

"Ok Google, remind me to fill you up with chocolate hobnobs."

Thanks to a wonderful error spotted in the UK, the shopping card in Google Search seems to think Google Home Mini is a 'Vintage Retro Biscuit Tin.' I'm sure bugs of this sort happen all the time, but it's especially funny that it's happened to one of Google's own devices.

  

The reviews are positive, noting that the product is "easy to use," "great value," and "lightweight" — all important features of a biscuit tin.

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.

Google and Netflix collaborate on Lost in Space game for Google Home

Friday, April 13th, 2018

As well as having tons of practical uses, Google Home also offers plenty of fun little distractions. You can ask the Assistant to tell you jokes or facts, and even play games with it. Tie-ins were inevitable, and Google joined forces with Netflix for a Stranger Things game last year, in which you could chat to Dustin on his trusty walkie-talkie. Lost in Space is Netflix's latest hit show, and there's a new Google Home game to go with it.

Google Home and Home Mini launch in India for Rs 9,999 and 4,499, respectively

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

The signs have been popping here and there and everywhere and now it's finally official: Google is bringing its smart speaker duo, the Home and Home Mini, to India. But before you get ahead of yourself and jump in excitement, you may want to do a double check on the prices: Rs 9,999 for the larger Home (approx. $154) and 4,499 (approx. $69). As always, prices outside the US are higher, and the sting is even more palpable in this case when the Home is over a year old and has been discounted to around $80 a few times and the Mini to $29 in the US.
