Doesn't check for new devices!
iPhonePhive on 7/15/2018
The app has been broken for months. There use to be an option to check for new devices with an existing setup. That no longer exists. For example I use a nest thermostat. I use to be able to check for a new nest device. I can no longer do that on the iOS app. I can do it on the Android app.
I use Alexa as Backup, one of the two usually work sufficiently
Jean Marie Turing on 7/14/2018
It’s very frustrating that this app only works correctly about 60% of the time. It frequently loses connectivity with Nest devices and certain functions of the app work poorly (e.g., the feedback function, trying to manage linked media accounts, lack of granular casting commands and inability to detect older google devices and link them properly). I personally try and avoid using this app. Google quality control for releasing versions of this app need to be more rigorous to address real world and varied use instead of limited lab and beta testing. I really would like things to work consistently.
Account linking
Dustin Dye | The startup Guy on 7/14/2018
Linking and switching accounts is very frustrating. Once setup google home is fun and useful. They need to work in the experience during setup.
A lot of people are giving one stars so I'm doing it too.

I set up my voice match and i did it three times. I kept telling google to call a friend and google wouldn’t budge, either telling me say it again or try again later it eventually got annoying. Please fix this issue

Not perfect but Very helpful, thank you Google!
To complex and impossible to navigate
cameronjensen on 7/13/2018
This app is the the worst example of an easy to use application. The first of many complaints I have about this is that it’s nearly impossible to navigate there is no simple way to do anything nearly all the icons are the same and they all do almost the same thing. The second and one of the most infuriating complaints I have about this service is that if you do want to do anything with this app you have to download half a dozen other apps each one only allowing you to do one thing .this whole system is hard to use and is more of an inconvenience than it is an aid
muuniman on 7/13/2018
It keeps saying something is wrong or I have another person on Pandora. WRONG!! Anything to not give me what I want. I’m ready to go back to a phonograph. Jeez!
App is not so Good anymore
Strange Viking on 7/13/2018
Not so good. Having a lot of trouble connect where as in the past I did not. Not happy with this app of of late

I love this thing so much !!!

Chromecast Unreliable and Unpredictable
Valdeztke on 7/13/2018
While the idea of grouping devices and easily casting to them from native apps is alluring it never works in practice. I rarely see all my devices available in Spotify. It always reverts to a device or two. Also, would be great to at some point allow TV and Audio devices to cast simultaneously within a specific group.
prittman91 on 7/13/2018
It’s fine
Google home now has trouble connecting
PhosphorusRex on 7/13/2018
I used to enjoy my Google home, using it to play music. Now, I'm not sure why my phone has trouble connecting to it. When I'm on Google play music, I usually have to connect to my Google home, then switch off the app before it connects. And it doesn't keep it's connection very well. I don't believe anything has changed since it worked well (same router, modem, etc.)
Shopping list is wonky
FroobleMe on 7/13/2018
On iPhone SE - rendering of list is partial and choppy Can only add one item to list ...further additions do not stick until app is restarted
Connection issues
shacsianne on 7/13/2018
Every day i have reconnect my chrome cast It starts working then after it doesn’t pick up the signal and i have to factory reset it and do the whole process again and again
Great app !!!
Jip95 on 7/12/2018
It’s working fantastic !!
Lacise on 7/12/2018
Love the app
Perfect app!!
Manny 65 on 7/12/2018
The best app for enjoy the google products easy set up .
ndfan1481 on 7/11/2018
Worked decently for a month or so and then stopped connecting and could’ve even be located. Don’t waste your money on this garbage. I wish I decided to buy Apple TV instead
Crap on iPhones and iPads.
B12mac55 on 7/11/2018
You cannot screencast. Plus the Google home doesn't see my Chromecast device to add it but see it to change the backdrop? The first is more important.
erickRD on 7/11/2018
This’s a really good product...
jeova 12355 on 7/11/2018
Not happy
Coke_0 on 7/11/2018
It constantly says “something went wrong” and fails to follow any commands unless you unplug it each time
Philolboy on 7/11/2018
Bought Nest thermostat and Mini came along with the deal. So far Google nor I can get Mini linked to my Generation 3 Nest Thermometer. With all of the advertising you would think Google would have the bugs worked out
Inconsistent app
Raymond J. Johnson jr. on 7/11/2018
This app is inconsistent. Some days it works just fine, others not so much. I find this extremely annoying.
Setup voice works but not really
amcohen on 7/11/2018
For this last month, whenever I invoke the "setup voice" card, I get "error. Something went wrong. Try again" Google tech support could not fix.
Hands Down The Best
MikeO779 on 7/10/2018
With the ability to connect to multiple devices and access various functions and features at home and away from home google is redefining what it means to be always connected
Does not work well at all
ctschmitt on 7/10/2018
Does not work well
Not what I thought ...
When Customers Feel Betrayed on 7/9/2018
I was told chromecast could cast anything. I have had no luck with casting Udemy nor The Great Courses. All other apps of interest are already loaded on my devices.
What happened!?
catsual saturday on 7/9/2018
Used to be great but now it is terrible. It deactivated my nest and Spotify and won’t let me reconnect them. The shopping list totally disappeared from the app, which makes the shopping list feature utterly pointless. This app is surprisingly awful considering it’s made my Google.
Knut2016 on 7/8/2018
Keeps crashing!!!!
mmmk24 on 7/8/2018
For the last couple of weeks, Chromecast has continuously stopped showing up in google home and in other apps. I have several chromecasts in my home and random ones show up at various times. For example, the living room Chromecast works one day, but the bedroom Chromecast does not. Then the next day it’s the opposite. I’m tired of constantly having to reboot my router and reset my Chromecasts. I rarely have this problem when I use an Apple TV. The Apple TV is more expensive, but at this point I would pay for the convenience factor. Bottom line, Chromecast does NOT live up to the reputation of google. Disappointed.
It’s ok
rharrack29 on 7/8/2018
Needs work...still a work in progress.
Impossible to use
me4528 on 7/8/2018
Waste of time
Does not compute
BIGpHiLyBlUnTs on 7/7/2018
Google home is a train rack does integrate with hue but when setting it up hue scenes come up as devices lol then you have to link and unlink the hue account to make changes to the names of the accessories but it never ports over to the google home! So now you’re left with lights names without a way to group them and can’t change the names! And when you do the app crashes. Not simple at all or intuitive this app and the service itself needs a serious face lift to keep pace with Alexia..
TryshAnn on 7/7/2018
The Chromecast has gone from a great way to cast from phone or laptop to a complete waste. No connection or it takes 30 minutes to finally connect. Tossing the usb with the stupid round caster and getting an Amazon Fire stick.
When it works
HeelShields on 7/7/2018
Great when it decides to work, A total pain the remainder of the time
Valwells on 7/7/2018
Absolutely magnificent, I just love this app
nsjsidix on 7/6/2018
Never works. Trash. Waste of money.
IUBstudent on 7/6/2018
Every single day in the middle of playing music it will just stop and when I try to give it a conmand to play it says “your google home hasn’t been set up” then 5 mins later it will start working’s soooo buggy. Alexa is better.
Sony Android TV
Jeezy1485 on 7/6/2018
All these commercials shows you can cast Netflix and control your TV with your Google Home but you need to buy Chromecast to do that... Cuz some reason it says android TV not support it use your Android TV control!?
Missing Settings
correcaminos 15 on 7/6/2018
Does not have base
Not reliable
KARINALATINA on 7/5/2018
Always goes out of signal
Really slow. Often hangs.
K-Dawg on 7/5/2018
The app is really slow and often hangs. Very frustrating.
Don't get
jhanjjff on 7/5/2018
Really bad, requires all sorts of paid subscriptions and removal of privacy controls for some called "fuller" experience, no way to manage subscriptions like podcasts, no way to integrate with web information via home app, no way to "cast" unless you use an android or Google device so if you use an iPhone or iPad don't get it
Does not work for me.
Scubaman32 on 7/5/2018
Frustrated & definitely just going to bey another echo.
luzbelle on 7/4/2018
Doesn’t work
Very slow
Temple run 0987654321 on 7/4/2018
Works slow. Sometimes takes a min to detect chrome cast. When the Chromecast audio is on, the app almost forgets it if you exit the app and it takes some time for it to detect the Chromecast after you open the app.
