The assistant has a good clear voice with great intonation.
Poor interoperability
DanSmaaash on 4/20/2018
Doesn’t work well with google devices. Which is kind of the point right?
Pagal77 on 4/20/2018
Unreliable & poor navigation
Google home changed my life
salonista on 4/20/2018
Truly incredible. Adding one thing, google home changed my life. I can listen to music that I choose and have my questions answered. It makes things easier.
I love it!
Phillysdon04 on 4/20/2018
It would be great to have geolocation based routines for the Google Home. Eg. leave home, turn off everything Eg. Come home, play music Also be smart enough to not turn off the light of someone is home similar to how Homekit does it.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't
3GPalmSprings on 4/19/2018
When I pull out the HDMI plug and then plug it back in it's like starting from scratch. At this point the devise doesn't connect at all.
Google Home Requires Work
OneScott33 on 4/19/2018
I am constantly having to reprogram the unit after power outages and updates. More trouble than it's worth sometimes.
Buy a roku
Charliee963 on 4/19/2018
More headaches than it’s worth. Just buy a roku instead!
leoleoniii on 4/19/2018
Unable to add tp-link smart plugs. Once it authenticates successfully nothing is added.

Rarely works. Takes at least 15 minutes of trying and then, if I'm lucky, it will cast.
Bush League Compared to Apple TV
Gjb24hxjkksn on 4/18/2018
I spend more time messing with this thing than using it. I use it only for chromecast and it’s awful. It works and then ten min later my phone can’t find the chromecast. It can always find my Apple TV to cast on in the other room though. So I just sit here frustrated seeing the chromecast pictures on the tv scroll through but no devices can ever find it. The only solution is restarting my whole network. I have 20 other devices from a half dozen different manufactures that all work seamlessly. I’ve given up. I’m just going to buy another Apple TV and put the chromecast in the trash where it belongs.
Ma7hbra1n on 4/18/2018
I like how the google home is working but I want it to speak Spanish from Latin America and Spain and Portuguese from Brazil and Portugal.
boom116 on 4/17/2018
We use this to help us stay on track. It’s speech is way too fast, otherwise I’d give it five stars.
Perfect for home
Fire wife 13 on 4/16/2018
My family and I love the it google home. It is amazing. Well worth the money that you spend on it
A very poor app
DustSquid on 4/16/2018
Settings are difficult to find and seem ill thought out and random
Loses link
DaeDave on 4/15/2018
Loses link from laptop to Chromecast too often :/
Etc0812 on 4/15/2018
It never works
Reviewieee on 4/15/2018
This app never lets me cast from my phone to the TV. I have only been able to cast successfully three times, and I have had my TV for six months.
Not impressed
GlitchKick on 4/15/2018
Have both Google and Alexa. Alexa much better and Amazon music is much better than Pandora or google music. Plus having Prime adds more
Chromecast not user friendly
cc, you stink on 4/15/2018
Tried to cast Spotify. Cannot find option to cast. The only thing it’s worked with is Netflix. I already had equipment for that. Wasted money.
Nothing works consistently
jacksondonaghy on 4/14/2018
I have a mini and a google home. I’m asked nearly once a day to link my accounts which are already linked to the speakers. I’m also asked to set up google assistant several times a week despite having set it up multiple times. It’s a pain in the a**
Can not connect to Chromecast
Kje103 on 4/14/2018
My apps won’t connect to chrome cast but shows it’s connected
It’s lit

You get google home set up the app and then you can do voice recognition!!!!
furtheralwaysseemsforever on 4/13/2018
The Google Home doesn’t work that well. You have to have a subscription for it to work properly. Time to switch to the Apple remote device.
Stopped working
Supersam2313 on 4/12/2018
Worked fine then nothing....
Can’t connect lights
B_ginnn on 4/12/2018
Can’t connect my Philips Hue lights!
Very bad
Arizroper on 4/12/2018
Cannot logout of this app
Won’t work with my Wife’s iPhone 8 Plus.
Itsamarathon on 4/12/2018
This app connects my Google Mini with my iPhone X without any problems, but will not connect correctly with my Wife’s iPhone 8 Plus. Tried resetting the Google Mini, and deleting the Google Home app without success.
Voice assistant
pambrissette on 4/12/2018
There is a major glitch in the voice assistant for the all google Max and minis. They have not resolved it with iPhones as of today and I will be returning mine if they don’t resolve it within the 30 day return. Very disappointing.
Never located linked devices
patstats on 4/11/2018
This stinks. Chromecast was simple the first incarnation. This app is the worst.
Inconsistent connection makes it unreliable.
Roblewis99 on 4/10/2018
It forgets that it has been connected all the time. I have to re-connect to Google Home about once a day. I go through the hassle once a day to get some performance, and then it crapped out again. Ridiculous.
SanFdo boy on 4/10/2018
I found this app just about useless. Confusing, not in the slightest bit intuitive and completely frustrating.
very poorly coded
brashus conicus on 4/10/2018
very poorly coded. you can link your spotify account but it does not show spotify as an option on screen to select default music. when you report the issue, they tell you to contact spotify when it is clearly an app issue. They want to force you to subscribe to google music. this is shameful. cortana and alexa managed to code their apps to allow using spotify as a default music service with great ease. big google fail. should fire this app's development team and hire more competent and responsive employees...
My google home

I love it! When I wake up in the morning she gives me details of what I need!
Unable to open after moving locations:(

Installed in Japan. Moved to another country; able to use only one day. No longer will connect to new network.

The best for entertainment, information.

Google has always been great with it's knowledge and simplicity, making lives of millions of people better and easy.
Don’t support racism and sexism
Wallyman.8 on 4/8/2018
Loved google till I read the entire Damore memo for myself and saw the screen shots of not hiring white or asian men. People aren’t random, over 70% of USA is white, google is only 55% white and they are desperately trying to lower that! The only way to “appear” to not be racist is to actually be systemically racist. Equality of opportunity is democracy. Equality of outcome is communism. Olympics are fair, but the podium is never politically correct/equal. You shouldn’t punish Norway for too many gold medals and “Norway privilege.” #boycott google #cathynewnaninterview
Great so far
Gabinchi on 4/8/2018
Great app so far. Looking forward to ditching the remote.
So good
Burnt Toast X on 4/8/2018
You can play music but you will have to have a subscription on google music
Voice recognition doesn’t work
randallized on 4/8/2018
Should have bought Alexa
Google Chromecast
Fabi.P15 on 4/8/2018
I always have an issue when trying to use my chromecast. I always have to disconnect and reconnect in order for it to appear on the google home on my app. It’s pretty annoying.
Error message
Ethan123. on 4/8/2018
Error message pops up when trying to set up google assistant mini- with no help options
ominous cheesecake on 4/8/2018
I love google and i love google home, only thing is i couldn't make a voice match account, but it worked on my wifes phone so eh. Really great though!
What are we waiting for? It’s 2018. Why can’t Google Home do everything that Google can do... by voice command? Also: Siri and Google and Alexa need to join forces already, hellleerrrr?
brand on brand garbage
pokefox4958694 on 4/7/2018
casts approved apps and only mirrors android devices
Stupid ratings
RCedano on 4/7/2018
Some of these ratings show how stupid people are. One lady wrote about what her child says getting recorded on Google servers lol. No one gives a f what your child has to say. Lol google gaga lol
Chromecast and Google Home. Don’t waste your time.
B.D. Tony on 4/7/2018
It doesn’t communicate with google home. It’s constantly interrupting my WiFi connection, and can’t stream for more than 2-3 minutes at a time. All of my other devices work perfectly fine. The cast button on streaming services will often disappear once something has casted, and when I go to google home to disconnect, it shows no option anymore. I only bought it and downloaded this app around Christmas. Terrible.
This is perfect
Greeneggxxx on 4/7/2018
This is the best product that Google has ever made the assistant is wonderful she is what a assistant should be unlike Siri Siri is not a actual assistant it was very easy to set up once you connect the speaker to your account and you set up your routine and everything else you really do not need to go into the app I do not understand what these people are complaining about in adding users it’s really simple most of these people are complaining for nothing why would google let Apple Music be on its product if you won’t to use Apple Music with a speaker by the HomePod it is really easy to set alarms in delete alarms it’s nice to know about your day when you wake up and get the news it is also nice and wonderful to walk into your home and ask it to do what you want perfect product good job Google
Great buts needs Apple Music support
Gavan H on 4/6/2018
