  • Google Home Max Review The Mc Mansion of Smart Speakers

Google Home is a voice controlled smart speaker with Google's digital assistant (just called Google Assistant) built-in.

And for Netflix users, Voice Match on the Google Home can now sync up your voice to your Netflix profile, so when you ask Google to play shows through Netflix on a Cast-enabled device, it'll stay on your profile with your watch history and TV show progress instead of mixing everything up with anything who might be using the Google Home in your house.

To set an alarm to music, you used to have to store the song you wanted on your device. Google has just announced a couple of quality updates in the Google Home smart speaker, one of which was already introduced in Amazon's voice assistant Alexa in December. To enable the feature, open the Google Home app and head to "More Settings".

Users can now set the alarm based on their musical preference. Now you can select an artist, song, or radio station to wake up to to make your mornings a little easier. Once you let the device know your choice, the alarm is set. Then tap on the music service you want to link and sign in.

If you have trouble waking up in the morning, you can now recruit your favorite musician to help nudge you out of bed. For example, in the shot below, Spotify is set as the default.

Another interesting addition to Google Home is the ability to answer your queries about a specific show, or the channel airing it.

Google Home and Amazon Echo are the two leading smart speakers in the market, and each has similar capabilities.

Further, if you have linked your Netflix account with the Google Home, you can also ask the assistant to stream any show with a voice command. Google says that it has worked with Netflix to make sure that when you ask the Assistant to play something from Netflix, it instantly loads up on your viewing device. "And same for your roommate or partner", Google says.
