I've had it for about a month. Other than asking for the weather forecast, which I can get on my iPhone and Apple Watch, I haven't found much use for it. I am retired so by daily schedule is very uncomplicated. I don't watch GOT so what's happening on media is also unimportant. The one thing I did ask for was the time of the solar eclipse at my location, which it couldn't answer.
Not Easy 3/5
It's all there, but just where the heck is it? Everything is embedded in menus within menus within menus. An easy user interface is not the name of this game.
Seamless app 5/5
Google at its best in integrating content platforms and devices
User friendly but slow in ios 3/5
By Amol Govindwar
This app will take long time to load in ios.
App is basically useless 2/5
It's hard to navigate, it's unintuitive and honestly, not sure what to use it for except creating groups of google homes and setting up accounts which I can't do via voice apparently.
Can't wait for Google to make it have reminders and other obviously overdue features
Great, easy to use 5/5
Very simple and intuitive. I like how Google home recognizes my voice separate of others in the house
Chromecast is really inconsistent 1/5
Just stops working for no reason. Really complicated instructions regarding how to reset
Doesn't work 1/5
It's completely random whether the Google Home app recognizes my device or not they just don't seem to work together consistently. I don't understand why Google play music would be something promoted in the app but you can't play it through the speaker. the whole ecosystem makes no sense
Crashes but still like it 3/5
This is the least expensive way to network your home or property for sound but it is glitchy. Spotify works better than pandora so I'm not sure if it is a google issue or the music provider. It does not work with iTunes at all.
Part time 1/5
By Decker boy
Only works part of the time.
Love it ! 5/5
It's so awesome to use Google Home to control and use it for whatever info I need.
By Instrumented H
Randomly fails and needs to be reset. Unstable code and touchy operation
Good App 4/5
Good app but needs to save Wifi log in info. Tired of logging in every time I move it when only going between two different locations.
Makes life easier 5/5
I love this!!! I can stream all day!
It will ok. On my mac, if it isn't broadcast audio. 2/5
It will only broadcast audio if you running you app in chrome. No sure I would have purchased had I known. Doesn't seem like an unreasonable expectation.
Great app 5/5
So far, everything is easy to use and works great!
Chrome cast used to be the best, this new update forces me to reset my chrome cast every day or I can't pick it up by any app, even though it's working on my tv! Fix this!!!
Great app 5/5
Awesome app thanks
Life saver 5/5
Perfect, 75% of time. 25% useless and unresponsive. 3/5
This app will work perfectly and seamlessly, even across different streaming platforms, for days at a time. And then suddenly, for no reason at all and usually right in the middle of otherwise smooth casting, ERROR MESSAGE. No image, no picture, and no way to tell if it's the router, the Chromecast hardware, the Chromecast app, or some other glitchy flaw that broke the signal. Sometimes my phone cannot detect the device plugged into the television for days, despite having reset the wifi in my house. Sometimes I come home and turn on my television only to realize that the Chromecast has just been streaming without me all day. I'm a big fan of Google, but this app has never been 100% ready for prime time.
Keeps crashing 2/5
Cannot change settings or make modifications to my profile. Keeps crashing on practically everything
Works wonderfully well.. just a tad slow but that's easy to live with
Fantastic app! 5/5
I have thoroughly enjoyed my Google Home speaker and app. Great job Google...Keep the updates coming.
Love it awesome app 5/5
It should be disposable 1/5
Second chromecast i purchase and both (on different tvs) only lasted about 5 months. Not recommended unless you have money to waste.
Great. Very smart 5/5
10X better than dumb Alexa
Google home 4/5
Great speaker works great still missing basic features such as reminder and a to do list.
Forget it remembering your Chromecast 1/5
By iPad nightmares
Ridiculous. I don't know what updates the developers did but the one time this app updated, now I continuously have to go through an entire resetting process just to get my Chromecast to be recognized by the apps. You really screwed this up guys.
Change it back 2/5
I don't know what you did with the latest update but now whenever I say "turn off my lights", it says which one. I have two lights assigned to the the room I designated "kitchen" in the home app, in my SmartThings app and in the hue app. Why the hell can it decipher that I want to turn off all the lights anymore!!!! Frustrating.
Works well 4/5
Sometimes it doesn't understand but overall quite good
Barely works 1/5
Super buggy and slow. Works 1/3 of the time.
Works sometimes 2/5
By Durgesh Vasmatkar
Firstly there is lot of things that you cannot do with this app. If YouTube and Netflix can be casted on TV, then why not photos? Very slow in detecting that something is already being casted. Chrome cast itself is buggy, and this app amplifies it.
It's good 4/5
A good app to control devices
Constantly down and malfunctioning 1/5
This app used to work a lot better. Now I am constantly not able to use the Chrome to watch movies because the app isn't pairing with my device.
Works great for me I don't know about you haters✌️😋✌️ 5/5
Works great for me i don't know about you haters ✌️😋✌️
4 Stars 4/5
By Neda Rae
Awesome app. I love it!
Best app ever! 5/5
If this app doesn't solve all of your connectivity issues you need serious help! I can control all of my rooms music with different volumes or separate rooms on and the others off. This app along with Google audio has saved me thousands! THANKS GOOGLE!
STOPPED WORKING. 1/5
It was working perfectly fine until it just gave out. It connects fine to the wifi and the app detects it but cannot connect. I go to my wifi settings and the hotspot doesn't even show up. It asks me to set it up from the beginning but it can't or rather, doesn't want to. Come on, Google. We, the customers buy your stuff so you definitely have the resources to fix it. And as some other users who contacted customer support were told to get a new one, um, no; not getting a new one because not all of us are made of money. PLUS, I barely bought mine a month ago. I refuse to buy a new device after only one month only because your updates can't get the job done. Get your stuff together and I will change my rating.
This had better not be some ploy to get them to break so we buy new ones.
App performance. 4/5
By Slapped jack
Still can't figure out how to use it for viewing other apps and screen mirroring is a little shaky. But over all. I recommend it.
Works for me!!! 5/5
By Raj C.
I love my Chromecast and use it everyday. Google Home app is a great tool and I would recommend it to anyone.
Solid application 5/5
By s l v
No issues that others have described. Helpful and crucial to my morning routine.
Sir Chordless 4/5
Ok so far - nice to be entertained w/o paying the cable bill
Works good 4/5
Works great but wish it gave you more instructions on how to do things like setup reminders if you don't have a google supported phone
Voice recognition disaster 1/5
The updates are very annoying. Home control works then after the update it does not work. After another update it works again. Then guess what... they update it again and it stops working. Finally the voice recognition is terrible, it never recognises my voice no matter how many times I train it. I do not even want this feature but they insist on me having it to link my account.
Best thing ever. I bought one for all rooms I pay $97 total for
Internet and Netflix.
Excellent UX 5/5
