Google Home Smart Voice-Activated Speaker

If there's one thing Google is good at, it's search. Its 20 years of experience has helped it to become the number one site we all go to when we want to look up stuff. Heck, most people just say "Google it".

Google Home is a minimalist's dream. It's a short device - about half the size of the original Echo - and while it's only available in white, you can still match it to your décor by swapping out the bases.   The top of Google Home slopes at an angle and hides a touch-sensitive panel. Swipe gestures allow users to change volume, play and pause music, and activate Google Assistant's listening mode.

The only other things you'll notice about the top-half of Home are two divots for the far-field microphones, which theoretically allow Home to pick-up your voice commands from across a room. As for the audio quality, Google Home has two passive radiators for bass and the output is adequate enough to fill a room.

Google Home is all about Google Assistant, really, which is the gateway to question-and-answer information. Assistant doesn't have a real-person name, like Alexa or Siri, but it does have a female voice and you can change the voice.
