Google Home - White/Slate
- Google Home Assistant
from Windsor Ontario on June 27, 2019
At first I was very pleased with this product but after a couple weeks the Google Assistant starting acting up by not answering me as requests were made and it started to repeat itself. It also dropped some music while it was playing. It is possible I received a bad device. ..?
- Awful awful product that borders on useless

The worst. Doesn’t know how to do anything. But, don’t worry, it will tell you over and over again what it CANNOT do
- just bad

Ever watched Elvis Gratton talking to his car ? This device is as smart ... simple things like playing specific playlist on Spotify or changing the device to output music on is poorly designed, unless you get the exact sentence it understands, forget it Often I end up using my phone to pick the playlist because its easier

Spent many hours on this poor instructions. Can't get a hold of anyone from Google. Spent years dealing with smaller software companies and easy to get a hold of - could email or phone. -- and now I am dealing with a multi billion company not the same. Was OK to set up my account but to try and set up spouses, absolute nightmare keeps switching accounts, and again tough to get anyone, may be simple?? LET ME KNOW HOW TO CONTACT YOU via response to this review ASAP

- Broken microphone
from Gatineau, QC on November 29, 2018
After less than 2 years the microphone suddenly stopped working. When contacting customer care, they informed me there was nothing to be done, and said I could simply use it as a speaker going forward.
- What a disappointment!

What a disappointment. We have a Google Home Mini which we sort of liked and thought to replace it with a Google Home. Audio quality and audio control are MAJOR problems for this device. First, the bass is cranked up so high it sounds bad and the bass and treble controls hardly improve it even when set to their respective minimum and maximum. Second, the volume controls give you the option of off, loud really loud, extremely loud and painful. This is not something you'd use if you have (a) people sleeping somewhere in the house or (b) conversations. In fact, a bar is about the only place you'd want to have this device. It's too loud for basic use in a home. And, 'night mode' does nothing to limit the volume. I've set the volume limit to quite a low level (30%) yet the Google Home will still happily crank the volume right up to MAX. All in all this was a MAJOR disappointment. People have been requesting a volume limiter for over two years and they still have failed to implement it. That tells you how much R&D Google is putting into their not-so-smart speaker.

Without looking at computer/mobile/tablet screens, I get most info out of this little device. Really impressed & happy to have it. :)

love the google voice assistant. the speaker is good at a medium listening volume. not much bass to it, but that is to be expected considering its size. blends in well with most furniture, dont see too often
