  • Here’s how to sync smart home gadgets using Google Assistant

    “Ok, Google, sync my devices.”

    Thanks to products like Philips Hue light bulbs, WeMo smart switches, and more, our homes are now smarter than ever before. However, as awesome as these things are when they work, they can often be a pain in the butt to pair new gadgets, move them to another room, etc.

    Thankfully, it looks like there’s now a command for Google Assistant that makes these tasks a whole lot easier.

    When talking to the Google Assistant on your phone, Google Home, etc., saying “Ok, Google, sync my devices” will automatically search for any smart gadgets and sync them up to your Google account. In addition to this, you can also get a tad more specific by saying something such as “Ok, Google, sync my lights” if you only want to sync up your smart light bulbs.

    This functionality is available for Google Assistant now, and while it’s not revolutionary or ground-breaking, it should make your life with smart gadgets a whole lot easier.

  • Google Pixel Buds UK review: A second opinion

    Google’s smart earbuds are a decent proof of concept, but at £159 they’re a really tough sell.

    With the removal of the headphone jack from this year’s Pixel phones it’s pretty clear Google expects buyers to go wireless for their mobile audio needs. And if you’re sticking within the Google ecosystem, the company is hoping to tempt you with a set of Bluetooth buds, nestled within a carpet-clad charging case, for £159.

    Naturally, Google Assistant is a major selling point for the Pixel Buds, with the ability to instantly interact with Google via a touch, instead of using the “OK Google” keyword, and hear replies instantly and privately. Notification reading is another big value-add, offering a hands-free way to fire off message replies without pulling out your phone.

    On the whole, the Pixel Buds are at least competent at everything they try to do. But after a few days of use, it’s clear to me that this is ultimately a “version 1.0” product. The Pixel Buds are promising, wi…

  • You can now buy the Google Home Max from Best Buy and Verizon

    Still no word on Google Store availability.

    At Google’s October 4 hardware event, one of the more surprising announcements was the Google Home Max – a beefed-up version of the regular Google Home with two 4.5-inch woofers, custom tweeters, 20 times the audio power, and a whole lot more. A listing in late November suggested that the Home Max would be released on December 11, and that appears to have been fairly accurate.

    Spotted by Android Police, the Home Max is currently available for purchase at both Best Buy and Verizon Wireless for $399, but those are the only two retailers selling it at the time of publication. The Google Store still shows an option for joining a waitlist, and it’s unclear exactly when this will change.

    Best Buy has the Charcoal and Chalk variants available for purchase with free shipping by Wednesday, December 13, but Verizon only has Chalk with the Charcoal one apparently already sold out.

  • Andy Rubin returns to Essential following report of inappropriate behavior

    Less than two weeks after his leave of absence began, Rubin has returned to Essential.

    On November 28, a report from The Information came out claiming that Andy Rubin – the co-founder of Android – had engaged in an “inappropriate relationship” during his time at Google. Rubin promptly took a leave of absence from his new startup, Essential, following this claim, and less than two weeks later, he’s already made a return.

    It’s now being said that Rubin announced his leave of absence on November 27, but according to one representative from Essential, the leave actually started earlier in the month.

    Essential and Rubin still haven’t confirmed the reason for the leave of absence, but we’d advise not holding your breath for a further explanation anytime soon. Rubin’s spokesperson denied claims of the inappropriate relationship almost immediately after The Information’s report came out, and for the time being, that appears to be the end of this mini-controversy.
