When you talk about a personal assistant I automatically think about an assistant working exclusively for one particular person. I secretly always dreamed about having one in my life, fantasizing about all I could accomplish in a day, in a week, in a year! Because time is so precious and limited, we are always trying to find ways of saving time so we can use it for more important life stuff, like the kids.
We finally installed our Google home this weekend, and oh I should’ve installed it waaaay before! It’s so easy to setup!
First of all it was so quick and we are all addicted already! Like a LOT. Even Axel babbles « where is google ? And calls it « GOOGA »
The kids borrow it ( without asking of course ) and want it in their own room! I guess we’re all dreaming about the PERSONAL ASSISTANT! Well Google home is!
Here is what we’ve asked Google and found so practical and that actually is saving time since we do not need to do it manually!
What time is it? ( so we don’t get late for school in the morning)
What’s the weather today? ( so I know if I need to dress the kids with one more layer )
Please play some music ( we can listen music via Google Play, Pandora, Spotify or TuneIn. )
What makes 2+2 ( so Liam can auto-correct his homeworks )
Can you set my alarm to 6am tomorrow
if you’re on the way out the door, you can ask it about traffic conditions or check the distance to your destination.
It can also check on your calendar if you have appointments ( it can’t yet add any )
If you have any smart home gadgets, the Google Home might be able to control them
with Philips Hue bulbs, which it can dim and color-change…
So we’re really happy to have a new friend in the house! I love it’s design and clean lo
