Makes me want to switch back to android! Apple’s HomePod better be dope.
it’s just ok... 2/5
it’s rare when all of my devices properly show up on the Home app. The iPhone X support is nice, but my new Chromecast doesn’t (v2) doesn’t ever show up on this app, and I have to factory reset it each time I want it to work. It’s kinda nuts. Yes, I’m making sure I’m connected to the same network as the Chromecast itself. I recently connected my OG v1 Chromecast to the TV and it seems slightly more reliable; not sure why.
Also, my Google Home Mini always shows up as a “linked device” under another unrelated device - and it presents these devices differently on different devices on the same network. It’s so messed up. Google Home Mini is like chromecast - a couple of “half-a**” devices that are barely competent.
Unclear Software 3/5
Tried Google Home and Google Assistant. Initial setup easy. Then trouble. Lots of trouble. Had major electrical outage. Had set up Google Home again and again. Then speaker would not recognize name. Tried again and again without success. Had lots of help from Google help but without success. I could repeat this but one might thing it was an Echo. Returned Google hone.
I HAVE NEVER HAD AN APP THAT CRASHES SO QUICKLY
Great use 5/5
By St. Andreezy
Great app 4/5
I love the app. The only reason I gave it 4 stars cause I switched to iPhone and cant screen mirror now.
Too many hoops to jump 2/5
I have no idea why a company like google needs to create this labyrinth. So many hoops to jump through before I was able to get my simple google Home mini setup to perform simple tasks.
Harmony connection 4/5
I really like the Google home, it’s changing how my family interact. I do wish it would execute the commands between the Harmony hud without always asking or telling me it is connecting to it. It should act more like a central hub.
Really annoying!!!! 1/5
Every day, I have to unplug my Google Home Mini to reset the thing. It keep getting there is a glitch, or something went wrong, try again in a few seconds. The few seconds seems to be forever. I get more then good enough wifi n this room. It has no problem streaming music when it's working. But these daily unplugging to reboot?
While I'm a homekit house, I also wanted to play around with Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Well so far, it's a fail. When it's working, its been working good, but rebooting daily to get it working again is a fail.
Not a great app 1/5
Not intuitive, clunky and doesn’t work well well with many apps at all. Pointless to purchase the chromecast box and app. Get an apple tv
More language updates needed 5/5
Is a great idea but I hope the add Spanish to the languages available and for it to be an update
Phone calling is miserable 1/5
Directions are bad
Execution is worse
I’m going to take this piece of junk back to the store
Love it proud owner of a new google home mini got one for my brother for a Christmas present to it goes with my new vizio 2017 chromecast smart cast tv the E55 series I love it all and the apps are perfect and I love my google it’s perfect for me and my every day needs!! Thank you google inventing the best smart device ever keep up the great work
Worst App 1/5
This app is pretty much useless. Chromecast should have stayed in its own separate app instead of going to Google home. Hasn't worked properly in months. Still can't get anything to cast properly. Useless at this point.
Not like the commercials 1/5
As an IT employee; this is one of the worst technological experiences I have ever had. Will not sync with any of my devices in my house nor does it provide user friendly information. I am taking it back tomorrow.
I had to give it one star to submit my review which it doesn’t deserve.
Messed up the UIX and potentially the discovery protocols 1/5
Chromecast used to just work! Now they messed it up! After installing Google Now on the network both my chromecasts and my Wemo devices stopped working.
Just want it to work 1/5
Poorly built navigation, poor user friendly device setup, not intuitive at all. Wth google... I expected much better from you.
Awesome app 5/5
Easy setup 4/5
The google home mini was easy to set up but I wish it would connect with my contacts on my iPhone.
Can’t change settings 1/5
No settings button on the app. Poorly designed app layout.
Cool idea that failed 2/5
Easy to start things better t impossible to shut off.
Disappointed about app 2/5
The google app isn’t so user friendly and I’m a bit disappointed in the lack of being able to customize google home within the app.
Won’t connect 2/5
My chrome cast won’t connect to my phone all the time even when connection is working perfectly
Doesn’t work 1/5
I bought two thinking I can have one at work and home. I thought it would be more useful because everything is google. I could sync my list, calendar, etc. I realized that it doesn’t work as well as my Alexa.
Hopefully it can work better. Google please make it work better thanks. I wanna love it.
So cool and useful! 5/5
By amanda jax
Just got this and I’m already in love. The app is so clear and seamless. Love it!
By Ela @ app
Can turn on the tv by casting to tv but no option to turn it off when finished casting.
My assistant 5/5
She’s the Best one yet. Answers all my questions, plays all my Fav songs, tells me Trivias and everything! Im a satisfied consumer.❤️
Needs more work 1/5
The google home doesn’t play pandora from the pandora app. The only way to play it is by saying “ok google play xxx radio”. It doesn’t link to your account so it plays songs that were thumbed down.
The instruction book is lacking. It doesn’t tell you to pair the device from the phone settings. It’s just not user friendly at all.
Also, I only order one google home mini, I received two and was charged for two. I’m returning both.
Cant even imagine chrome cast without it 5/5
Lets face it, most third party apps with chrome cast support are terrible at it. But you are in luck, this app steps in to save the day. Most tv stations apps don’t allow you to change to volume along with your location in what ever your watching. This is frustrating especially as you got most of the way threw a show and the app crashed. The newly updated google app allows you to control the position in the show and the volume in a easy to use and pleasant interface.
Piss poor 1/5
Why do you have to make owning a device difficult when reconnecting your Chromecast
Love it 5/5
By Big Gary V
Only have it for 3 days and love how easy the set up was and how well it works. The sound is very good. Very portable. Can’t wait for the warm weather to use it on the deck.
Have to do better google 2/5
Too difficult to navigate. Unorganized
Not intuitive 1/5
Having a very hard time adding a second voice to use device
Cool app! 5/5
Works great and very convenient
Doesn’t work for Google Home Mini 1/5
The iOS app wizard cannot complete setup on my Google Home Mini. The home mini connects to WiFi but then the wizard drops into an “uh-oh” screen saying my WiFi settings need to be changed. Amazon’s echo dot works perfectly in the same network. I needed to borrow an Android to use the Google Home Android app to complete the Home Mini setup.
Great app I love my Google hone and the Mini’s 4/5
Echo didn’t have near the options in app and I sent it back today. I posted negative review and they wouldn’t even post it on site nothing in my review other then the truth and they tried to call me what a joke. That’s why I got my google home. Just wish it was more affordable for some of the lighting and plugs and not so bulky Thank you
Loser App 1/5
Still fails to install chromecasting from a mobile chrome browser (iPhone/iPad). Not even worth a single star. Useless crap!
Very difficult 1/5
By The frog princess!
Having an extremely difficult time setting up google Home and devices (TP link) to google Home. Awful.
It's very limited to what it can do.
More difficult to activate device 1/5
So disappointed to get home and discover that my new google home won’t work because I live in an apartment complex that offers general WiFi and the app and the device no longer support that, they need you to have independent access to WiFi. Sad to return... hope amazon echo does not have this issue.
Groups stopped functioning 3/5
Three days ago, all of my groups stopped functioning. I’m sure it has something to do with the new release. Hope they can fix this soon!
Worst app ever
Love it 5/5
By Glove 12
Love it making me switch from an IPhone to google phone when the google phones get cheaper
Love this app so easy to use as fun
If there’s not going to be detailed instructions on setting up google home, AND google home can’t do anything until it’s been set up, then the whole this is pointless.
No Options 1/5
This app and most apps are crap!!! There are no options to undo, cancel, or blackout from an association or connection made. All regular television controls are removed once the chrome cast has been connected and there are no options provided to undo any of the steps!
Great App! 5/5
It’s very easy to use and the compatibility between my devices are great!
Voiceover accessible 5/5
Highly recommend much more voiceover friendly than the Amazon echo
