Good job, Google!
🐱Ravenfeather🐱 on 1/23/2018
I received a google home this Christmas and have loved it ever since. I liked it so much I bought a mini for my room! It is so convenient and once I get smart plugs I’m sure it will be even more useful so I can turn on and off light or my appliances. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is because sometimes google doesn’t hear me, and sometimes google beeps when no one said “hey google” or “ok google”. I also would like to see iTunes incorporated into google homes. I have a lot of music, and since google is a nice speaker it stinks not to be able to play my music on it instead of just Pandora, Google Music, or Spotify. Thanks, Google!
I like it but.....
FUUUUCK!123 on 1/23/2018
I can’t cast shows/movies/pics or music unless its a streaming service! I can’t play movies i bought, music i bought or shows i’ve bought. You guys need to change this before i change my review otherwise it’d be 5 stars
Cuando en Español?
Alfredo Salazar on 1/23/2018
Hola, compre uno pero aún nada de la versión en español para Costa Rica, cuanto más debo esperar?
it’s good
Lowkeycloakey on 1/22/2018
Pretty good
The worst app on iPhones.
Could've been cooler on 1/22/2018
Try another product and save yourself the headache. I have the google chromecast ultra.
STOPPED WORKING...... again
l/j/r. on 1/22/2018
Needed to change networks so I did the setup for that. Once that was complete, the app would stop working. I unplugged the device from its power source and deleted the app. Plugged device back in and it connected to the network just fine. Now the app, however, won’t even show me the device. I’m beyond frustrated with this. Should have gotten a Fire Stick instead.
It's ok.
Hazerdous804 on 1/22/2018
I like the app, I like my google home mini. The only problem is my brothers voice sounds similar to mine, so he can control it to which kind of irritates me. Other than that it's OK.
Home away from Home
justfrench on 1/22/2018
I use my google Mini at College and since all the google home devices connect to she same internet anyone who has the home app can (and frequently will) control my device. It’s extremely frustrating and an invasion of privacy. There needs to be a way to make my device private.
This product is “still learning”
Googlehome is mt nemesis on 1/22/2018
Whenever I ask anything, it doesn’t know how to answer and tells me it is still learning. It is not a puppy. It is an expensive product that is already being sold and no longer being beta tested. Other than it occasionally giving me a requested alarm, it is wholly unreliable. Is says it sets reminders and then it doesn’t remind me! It is the worst product I’ve ever encountered. No instruction manual, no website to explain its features and therefore, no way to learn how to trouble shoot or figure out its potential.
Shopping list access
Aasfghjklpoiyyrrreddgbbzbsns on 1/22/2018
Shopping list access takes many steps and it cannot be shared with other users or opened with iPhone notes. Even cannot access it with 3D touch. In general the app is good but i hate it because of the shopping list access. Fix it google!
Mirroring
nimily5 on 1/22/2018
Why can’t I mirror from iPhone?
👎🏿returned
i BeoWulf i on 1/22/2018
It has very limited browsing and there are not many options to customize it until you pay! Also when you mute the mic it tells you that I’m muted after hearing your instructions, which is very strange, which can mean that it is still hearing your voice while muted, strange!!!
So, so
Jct1287 on 1/21/2018
Not as good as it sounds but I’m sure it will get better. My google Home tells me “ I don’t know how to help with that” a lot.
Google home response
Spiderman-2099 on 1/21/2018
Google can't seem to hear or recognize my voice. I have to get witching 5 feet of the device to get it to hear me.
Constant “Something went wrong”
Carraces on 1/21/2018
Disappointed with it constantly disconnecting from WiFi!?!
Apple Music needs to be supported
DarkChocolate855 on 1/21/2018
I have a google home, and it works great. The only problem I have is that Apple Music is not supported. I don’t want to have to get a subscription to a different music provider just so I can hear it on my google home. If this was implemented, I would rate this 5 stars, but overall, it is a solid app.
Won’t sync my contacts
Turchi44 on 1/21/2018
Spent too many hours looking for ways to sync my contacts from my iPhone. Totally frustrating.
Google vs Alexa
Anejohn on 1/20/2018
Google is way behind the Alexa device. After a “Hey Google” command the mini google device only says “there are some basic setting that need your permission first”. Maddening!
Not Intuitive, cumbersome maze
jplanda on 1/20/2018
Does lots, little logic, with multiple google speaker control very difficult. Lots happening here, in the future...
Google home
Doctor who!!! on 1/20/2018
It is great I love it
Hey google... 75% of what I ask "it" to do, it can't do it!
Skippiesammie on 1/20/2018
For example; I asked Google to shut the F up! (after the answers she gave me were seriously, nothing to do with what I asked) and Google responded with; here's a song ...blah blah blah (almost sarcastically) and it played a song about "Sarah", and that's my name!!! So this thing is not only useless to my demands but has a sassy attitude. I'm also still convinced this machine is listening to all our conversations. Oh and btw, my house will be silent and google will out of no where answer random questions! This thing seems to be only able to answer to ghosts. That's all I have to say for now.
A lot to improve
TomChiang579 on 1/20/2018
1. The interface is way too hard to navigate. Need to search online for every setting I want to change. Don’t know where the settings is in device or in personal settings or in more setting 2. Even though it says it supports Japanese, it didn’t really respond to any request and terminate quickly. 3. It should be able to send email about some questions if we want the result in hand.
Garbage!!
JackRusse1l on 1/20/2018
Chromecast doesn’t show up 95% of the time. Once in a blue moon the stars will align where I can cast my Netflix onto my TV. The rest of the time it isn’t even listed in my devices OR if it IS listed or I jump through a bunch of hoops to find it, Netflix doesn’t have any idea it exists. Even when I locate my Chromecast and log into Netflix THROUGH my Google Home, Netflix has no clue that my Chromecast exists.
Easy to use
rugby9470 on 1/20/2018
The app is very easy to use. The app is also very efficient. I suggest this app to everyone!
Google can’t be trusted
bashir the clown on 1/20/2018
Google can’t be trusted because the review that was written on December 31, 2017 said that they record what you say and Store it on their servers. So when you Google say that they protect your privacy, do not trust them.
It’s just ok
RMatila86 on 1/19/2018
I find that the app is not as useful as I would like it to be. You are not able to manually set alarms and timers like on the Amazon Alexa App and the menus interface is not as user friendly as I would like. Most of the time I’m guessing at what I might get scrolling through the menu rather than knowing where I want to go. Pretty much most everything useful needs to be done through the google chrome itself which is everything except the initial setup. Disappointing app and features when compared to Amazon. I actually prefer the google home but the app is very far behind of where it needs to be. Disappointed.
Limited functionality
JoeDMSr on 1/19/2018
Ask the device how to change your home address and the instructions are not correct. I couldn’t change my home address.
Chromecast isn’t working
ThisMachine7 on 1/19/2018
I go through the process of trying to set up my Chromecast and every time it keeps saying “It’s possible that your Chromecast and iPhone are connected to networks that are unable to talk to one another. This may require a small change to your Wi-Fi settings.” But even though it says that on my phone, my tv will say “Ready to Cast.” Not only that, but the chromecast icon doesn’t appear in apps like Netflix or YouTube anymore. Ever since they went through an update they haven’t been working, and I’ve tried everything to get it working
Makes chromecast so much more difficult and complicated than before
Tncooks on 1/19/2018
Used to be a plug in my chrome cast in shows up on my phone and I can cast simple and done no it’s all complicated because you have to use this app I’m so frustrated with it I’m ready to just chalk it and go get a fire stick
Too Invasive
jdebot on 1/18/2018
Too Invasive
$25 google express discounts do not work
DT Money on 1/18/2018
Discounts automatically didn’t pop up and there is no one to email or call. I bought as Christmas presents so we are out $100 in credits.
It’s so disjointed
Anardodesign.com on 1/18/2018
Organize this mess.
Not satisfied not useful or user friendly
frustrated with Kiwilabs on 1/18/2018
Not user friendly. I need mine to use Spanish or Korean, but can’t switch it.
Very annoying to navigate
Yoni V on 1/18/2018
I want simple access to different things I can control and not be drowned by suggestions every page
Options not available
Attdoll on 1/18/2018
The instructions say that google can identify different people on the home mini but I have tried for hours. I think the instructions are for the “home” and items not deleted. I also found from google.com examples wher they say “Alexa what is the date” WHAT? Alexa is a Amazon product and not connected to Google (yet)
Chromecast
Bonne Marie on 1/17/2018
Stuck on closed captioning with no option to turn off.

O2Bi on 1/17/2018
It will never connect to chrome cast.
Very good app
aidan💪 on 1/17/2018
It is the best app ever
Good
SomaZ_6417 on 1/17/2018
The google home is very good, but the app doesn’t do too much.
Not good
bradbates on 1/17/2018
Keeps crashing my Asus home WIFI.
Love Google
SusanSinisi on 1/17/2018
Love google home, love everything google
Can not mirror screen
Hawat5 on 1/17/2018
Can not mirror my screen using iPhone.
Meh
Viveronic on 1/17/2018
It’s ok. It refuses to learn my actual location. I’ve entered my home address but it thinks I’m the next town over. It would be nice to name this thing. Hey google, gets old fast. How much data does this use? I’m also not comfortable with the 24:7 listening in stuff.
Waste of time and money
Bebo-Cruz on 1/16/2018
Works good with Netflix if you try to stream anything else the apps crash or you have mayor problems videos don’t play or it keeps buffering done wasting time in these stupid devices moving on to something better.
Quit disconnected itself
Kansas Jake on 1/16/2018
It's not very user-friendly when it disconnects itself and then you're trying to reboot it or change it to a different Wi-Fi connection
Voice Matching
Kiki080808 on 1/16/2018
Most of the time it doesn’t recognize my voice and I have to reset it.
Not user friendly.
Poopguyp.s.ifarted on 1/16/2018
I am comfortable with electronics. It’s not very often where an app is the platform that confuses me. Not only is this app not user friendly but it’s difficult to do things that should be so simple. I pay for google play music on my iPhone and can’t connect my music because it’s on a different app. This isn’t just a complaint about the app but also the google home. Waste of money. I highly recommend that no one spends money on this garbage and instead they go outside, pick up a rock, and just stare at it for 4 to six hours. It will prevent a lot of frustration. So bad I’m gonna come back every day just to say it’s bad.
Google home mini
kbutterboysmomma on 1/16/2018
Love it! My kids love this and it’s helpful for homework!
Bummer
Jerodgers on 1/16/2018
Wasted half a day trying all the settings I could. So far no luck. Bummer but it is a first gen chrome cast. Hope the next gen is designed for better compatibility. There should have been little more testing before dropping a product on the public just to be ahead of the competition. Guess I’m stuck with a Ethernet cable for a while. 😳
Connectivity Is Trash
jroc619 on 1/15/2018
The connectivity is absolute garbage. There should be no reason to have to reset the Chromecast every time I come home or even in between shows. Wish I could give negative stars.
