HOME… AND YOU’RE AWAY

GOOGLE HOME IS A PIECE OF CAKE TO SET UP

Australian T3 - - SMART HOME 2017 -

1 THE HOME APP

The first step is to down­load the new Google Home app. This en­ables you to man­age the Google As­sis­tant set­tings as­so­ci­ated with your Google Home. When you’ve got the app up and run­ning, sim­ply scan for de­vices and fol­low the on-screen com­mands to set up your de­vice. You may be asked to change your lan­guage set­tings to US English (as Google Home isn’t of­fi­cially avail­able in the UK yet). 2 LINK YOUR MU­SIC

OK, now you’ll want to get your mu­sic ser­vice linked. If you’re on Google Play Mu­sic, you’re ready to go. But for Spo­tify, you’ll need to link your (Pre­mium) ac­count. Go to the menu and choose Mu­sic, tap on Spo­tify and then hit Link. Sign in and you’re done. Try it by say­ing ‘OK Google, play Gang­namStyle’. 3 START WATCH­ING

Google Home can con­trol your Chrome­cast. Go to the menu and tap TVs and Speak­ers. Then hit the + but­ton bot­tom-right and choose Chrome­cast. Sign in on the fol­low­ing page with your ac­count de­tails and try it by say­ing some­thing like ‘OK Google, play John Oliver videos’.
