The Google Home is a smart speaker manufactured by Google as part of its “Made By Google” product line. It serves as a central hub to regulate devices. Google Assistant activates the Home’s voice-operated speaker. A direct voice request permits playing of music, podcasts, or radio from services like YouTube Music, Google Play Music, iTunes, as well as Pandora. Compatible with devices like Philips Hue, Nest, as well as Chromecast, Home uses voice commands to turn down lights and control temperature.
The Home’s speaker features a modular cylindrical shape and has four LEDs on the surface with colors similar to Google’s logo to signify power. The top’s touch panel can also adjust music, pause music, activate the Google Assistant, and more. A “mute” button puts the speaker’s microphones on standby. Additionally, it features optional base accessories for customizing Google Home with a direct twist and pull.
