I followed all steps to configure my Chromecast and there was absolutely no way to do it. The app doesn’t work.
My google mini kept not connecting to the app nor my Spotify 1/5
By Jimmy. C
Tried troubleshooting as suggested still doesn’t work.
Extremely difficult 2/5
I don’t know why I was surprised Device to be a lot but I ask that
They have completely screwed up the migration from Nest products and they still don’t fully support Google Apps accounts. Needless to say, my google assistant speakers can control any device EXCEPT my nest thermostat. Oh and no support for the Nest protects in google home which I spent $700 on. SMH Google

This app is so hard to find where the settings are and overall very hard to change the things you want
Love this app . Useful
App crashes 1/5
I just got the Hue started kit and was very excited to use it. I connected everything and downloaded the app, but as soon as o open the app, it crashes. I have tried multiple times to open it and have also restarted my phone. Not sure what to do here...
iPhone User 1/5
Need to fix the problem with the device disconnect after 5 -10 minutes
Disappointing from Google 1/5
I’m sure the group working on Google home know the issues but the app and functionality is a mess. It’s beautiful and if it just worked it would be great but screens are there then you can’t find how to get back to them. I can’t control volume streaming through Spotify. Nest point is playing music but device won’t show as a speaker or ability to set up as one in google home. I ask google to play music but it acts like it isn’t connected when it clearly says linked in the app. Just a messy and confusing experience that makes me want to avoid google products. :(
No bueno 1/5
By The led expert
Get Alexa. Save yourself the trouble of even trying this nonsense of an app. Alexa connects all devices right away with minimal effort.
Smart home 5/5
The convenience of the google home devices help make life easier. Wonderful investment
needs improvement 3/5
i really like this app but there are some things i wish they would change for more ease of use. when i try to access manage routines a lot of times it only loads the pre set routines and not my custom ones which gets annoying, if they could also create a way to turn off routines with a switch in the app it would make it way easier to cancel a routine for a certain day without having to change the scheduled day every time i want to turn it off
Just installed a smart plug so can control a light in my office with voice command. Linked to Spotify so can play any music too. Amazing. The future is here.
Was working fine 1/5
By eric m leve
I had a google home and everything was working fine. I purchased more products and have had nothing but issues ever since. I contacted customer service and they advised me to create a new account and reset everything. Which I did and this only made the issues worse. None of the apps will connect, after the app says connected. Then when I go to use them it says “cannot find” and offers me the option to connect them only to say “already linked”. I’m honestly just thinking of returning everything.
More Nest functionality please 3/5
What I need is for it to automatically turn down thermostat when I leave and turn on cameras — reverse when I get home
The app keeps crashing 3/5
By Sorry to every one who seen the trailer
If I get and open the app more than twice a day the app crashes and I have to restart my phone to get it to work again. But love the features. Super annoying that this happens would be more fun to play with.
Connection issues 1/5
By Digi Ma
Google Mini keeps disconnecting from Apple Music but not Spotify. Please fix. Whether we play music from the iPhone or iPad it keeps disconnecting.
Connection issue 1/5
There have been connection issues this whole week. Also google interrupts me when I’m talking. It’s not my internet bc literally all my WiFi cameras security system and Alexa has been perfect. Fix the issue and I’ll change the rating
I WOULD GIVE IT NO STARS 1/5
If you live on a campus, save your time and money. It’s literally a piece of crap. Refuses to connect to my school wifi and bluetooth is ALWAYS disconnecting. save yourself the hassle.
Great concept, could be potentially very useful device/app, but there are some pretty annoying issues with it:
1) It keeps signing out from google home app, there is a known issue with it. Imagine, you set up an alarm and next morning it didn’t wake you up, because you were automatically kicked out from the app.
2) you can’t remove other devices once they were added, there is a bug. It displays an error message when you attempts to toggle off devices. So annoying!
3) constantly pushing you to subscribe to paid account to be able to use basic functionality
Great Google 5/5
Works for Me.
Why so complicated? 2/5
By Bronte Joseph
This is the most confusing and user-UNfriendly app I have encountered in a while. My roommates and I all struggled profusely trying to set up our respective Google Homes and the app was majorly in part to that. A facelift & update are needed ASAP.
Google has trouble understanding my commands 2/5
Simple commands such as setting light scenes or setting up routines is as complicated as talking to a wall. The response I get the most is “Sorry I don’t know how to help with that” which doesn’t help much. Only thing google is good for is telling it to play music. Anything else you will have to do manually. Disappointed!
Doesn’t do any the things it says it will do. Also making me write this review with a white font on a white background very impressive

Always getting “Something went wrong, try again later” 1/5
I’ve been factory resetting and rebooting for more than a week. Cannot get my google home mini to work. It was working fine till a week ago. Always getting “something went wrong” or “I cannot help you with that” as the only response.
Very glitchy on iOS. 3/5
Given that Google makes Android, I suspect that it spends most of its time developing the Android version. Thus, the iOS version is kinda glitchy sometimes. Also, no dark mode of any sort is annoying at night. They need to work on stability and an automatic dark mode.
Not accurate 1/5
I’ve been setting up Kasa liteplug lite for more than an hour
Don’t work on Apple iOS 13.3.1 wow can’t mirror and hard to find 1/5
By Chief obits
So I have a ide if you do it the casting and mirroring through the chrome like you do in windows thinking that will fix a lot of problems with your cromcast might even fix android 9 to full screen
love it but... 3/5
my google home speaker will disconnect from bluetooth randomly while i’m playing music, i don’t know if it’s the app or the device itself disconnecting but either way it’s a pain in the neck.
Families can’t invite family members if they are using gSuite. 1/5
You would think those with paid google accounts would be able to use all the features of those without paid google accounts. Nope. Just like assistant can’t check gSuite calendars, home won’t allow gSuite accounts to invite others to their family. Worse, google is killing off the nest app, effectively breaking functionality for nest users that have gSuite accounts and want to use the home app. It’s the worst. Also, related, the home device with the screen forces a news feed to the forefront. Sometimes you just don’t want Donald Trump news on 24/7 on you “home device.” Nest and Home are being combined prematurely, and the home app and visual interfaces on the home devices are nothing short of barely customizable, half-working, ad machines.
Very unintuitive and terrible to navigate 1/5
By Maro the Great
The Google Home App is very unintuitive and terrible to navigate. I am a power user and I have serious trouble figuring out where things are, how to add devices, group them in a room etc. Google, if you are listening, do object oriented programming. Let voic3 commands do what you want done in the app. For example: Google, creat3 a new room. And it starts the step by step. Google, place in room my smart devices, then it starts the process and you pick the smart devices.

I can’t reconnect my WiFi
Slooooow app 2/5
updating a year later - still pretty much the same. Haven’t switched back to Alexa mainly because I just don’t want to invest any more $$ in these clunky devices. This google home app is still inconsistent and frequently frustrating. You might try Alexa instead.
from 2018: I have 1 google home and 6 google assistants on various floors of a townhouse. All on a 5Ghz WiFi channel. Each functions fine with voice commands. But if I want to lower or raise volume on another floor using the Google Home app, the app takes at least 1-2 mins to connect, if it ever does. Even if I’ve just managed to make it work 5 mins earlier. Getting frustrated with this. Might go back to Alexa. Though Alexa can’t seem to understand accented English even with “training.” So there’s that.
Linking devices 1/5

If you try to connect the Xbox it will connect fine. It works fine when you tell google to turn off the Xbox but then I tell it to turn on and it tells me I need to reconnect the Xbox to the app.

It doesn’t work 1/5
By chirp nugget
I spent $47 on a google home for it not to work
Incredibly Bad 1/5
This app won’t delete devices without extreme difficulty. There doesn’t seem to be any legitimate support. What support is available is highly inaccurate. If I had not invested in a Nest Hub and a Nest Learning Thermostat, I’d delete this app and never use Google Assistant again.
Using app for setting seems difficult
Always buffering streaming Disney plus 1/5
This as been a very annoying problem I always have buffering using googles chrome cast with Disney plus when I buy a product for video streaming I expect it to work every annoying problem that I know I’m not the only person have it
It’s so bad 1/5
I been using so much and I loved it but when I tried to listen it cast music on iPhone XR it just didn’t work. There wasn’t any button that said “Cast”. I couldn’t play music. I was so mad. Now I kind of hate this app.
Drop out 3/5
Google home mini does ok, but drops music a lot
Shopping list 1/5
Little irritating after the last update that I have to go through my account then settings just to access my shopping list. It needs to go back on the homepage where it was to begin with. Very disappointing and to much to access when shopping. Just make it simple.
Very glitchy, poltergeisty activity 1/5
It randomly turns on and off devices, stops music, won’t process commands half the time- ugh its becoming very frustrating.
Why doesn’t it work? 1/5
Whenever I go into it
It never asks me to cast it
Please see that my dad can and I can’t pls help
Will not recognize new devices 1/5
How does my phone recognize devices but not this app? Tragic
Google home app 1/5
Terrible app. Nest was much better. Can’t schedule time and temp by day as I could in Nest app. Can’t do anything with Nest Thermostat
Me gusta mucho excelente
My Google Home 5/5
I like my Google home device better than Alexa. A I is getting better all the time. I like to converse with my Google home
