What's in the Box?
You can control the Google Home by voice, with the Google Home app, or using the touch surface on top of the unit. Voice control can be disabled with the rear-mounted mute button. At only 3.79" wide and 5.62" tall, the Google Home is designed to fit nearly anywhere in most décors. To further blend into your home, the slate fabric base is interchangeable with six separately available colors.
Command Your AudioA simple voice request triggers the Google Home to play music, podcasts, or radio from services like Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, Pandora, and TuneIn.
Get Answers from GoogleThanks to Google's history in search, the Google Home is ready for your questions. Get real-time answers, including the latest on weather, traffic, finance, sports, local businesses, and more.
Plan to Do MoreWith your permission, the Google Home will learn about you and get personal. It can retrieve your flight information, set alarms and timers, and tell you about the traffic on your way to work.
Voice-Control Your Smart DevicesThe Google Home connects with smart devices like Chromecast, Nest, and Philips Hue, so you can use your voice to set the perfect temperature or turn down the lights.
Far-Field Voice RecognitionFar-field microphones and natural language processing help ensure that the Google Home hears you reliably.
Multiple Google Home devices can be grouped together to enjoy the same content in every room.
Touch ControlsThe top touch surface gives you total control, and a mute button lets you put the Google Home's microphones on standby. Tap the top surface once to pause or stop audio, timers, alarms, and responses. Swipe clockwise to turn the volume up or counterclockwise to turn it down. Long-press the touch panel to trigger the Google Assistant. Press the mute button on the back to keep the Google Assistant from being triggered, even if you say "Ok Google."
Hi-Fi SpeakerThe integrated high-excursion speaker is designed to deliver crystal-clear highs and rich bass.
Style Your HomeWith bases separately available in seven colors, you can make the Google Home fit with nearly any space and décor. Just twist and pull off the one you don't want to replace it with the base of your chosen color.
