Meet your Google Assistant



Google Home is a voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Home Assistant. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own Google, always ready to help. Just start with “Ok Google”.


Get answers from Google


Get real-time answers including the latest on weather, traffic, sports, finance, local businesses and more. Ask for things like translations, calculations, nutritional information and unit conversions hands-free. Or search for any other information you’re curious about.


Enjoy your music


With a simple voice command, play tunes from your favourite services like YouTube Music, Spotify, Google Play Music and more. Enjoy even more compatible audio services by streaming directly from your phone to Google Home. Please note: Google Home is optimised for selected music and audio services only.

Not for me thanks, I'm trying hard to get Google OUT of my home. I've never trusted Google with privacy and have recently began deleted everything Google - which is a bit easier for me because I use mostly Apple devices. The concept seems good though, I shall wait until Apple bring out a competitive product.

If re-contracting in-store, on an $8 per month plan, is the Google home posted out or is it handed over in-store?
