Started well but now almost useless
Very happy a year ago but each update ruins this product more. Lately it wakes me in the middle of the night with music at full volume & I never use full volume. Last night about 3am in started speaking in German at high volume. Also the command "play podcasts" now plays the same podcasts in the same order every night for 5 months- despite anything you might tell it. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL

Immunoforce tablets can cause loss of taste
After taking 2 of the herbal Immunoforce ( Bioglan brand) tablets per day for just over a month I have lost all taste and have a bitter taste in my mouth. After researching I found a similar tablet Armaforce has reported the same adverse reaction. Can take several weeks after stopping the tablets to recover taste

Worth exactly $0. Don’t buy.
If you love Spotify, you’ll love how google home keeps telling you to signup for YouTube premium even after you’ve linked your account.
You’ll love how it defaults to YouTube even if you have Netflix.
If you can’t get enough of google advertising and want to pay for a device to force mod of it down your throat then this is the device for you.
As a consumer I’m offended that I had to pay for this and that the ACCC allows Google to do so.

Cool cat cages Betta Pet Systems
Betta pet systems have given me a good night's sleep. Their cat cages are well proportioned, strong and the benches are made of sturdy wood. Although this cage cost me a tiny bit more than a crappy imported mesh cage I ordered from Bunnings it was worth it. The Bunnings cage has rusted after a day of rain and is very flimsy - around 330 - Betta delivered within a week and put it up for me straightaway without any fuss- very helpfully carrying it in around my messy backyard!
Does a terrible job at hearing you
This Google Home model introduced more stress than help to my home. It frequently fails to hear, misunderstands and generally doesn’t perform. The more recent nest hub minis are far superior to this. Avoid.
Did work once...........
Worked great, suddenly could not connect. Re-installed app, 1 foot from phone, 2 feet from wifi, could not connect. Restarted everything. Even bought spotify to go with it. Total waste of time and money.

The best to wake up and start your morning with the music to get you going. It’s so easy to connect and sync to all your devices. I highly recommend google home

Idiot and slow
Such a waste of money. Siri works better. I have to scream so many time. And every time when I watch something on netflix and trying to pause. It either doesn’t respond or it act very slow. Very disappointed.

Great sound, neat design. Bulky plug, deaf
Certainly a game changer for all house music in the house.
Has very good sound range I got rid of my UE Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker.
I also have 1x Google mini. The Google mini mic is very good at picking up my voice, whereas the 4x Google home speakers I have are often frustratingly deaf and I often find myself shouting at the speaker and the swearing at it.
The home is supposed to have 2 mics for 3D listening.. Also they located the mics on the top which means dust will eventually build up in the mic holes.
The power pack is also bulky so wh...en plug into wall socket you can't plug anything into the adjacent power socket because the big bulky Google home plug takes up 1/2 spaces. Would I buy another one to expand my speaker network. Absolutely. I would be even more happier if they fixed the mic.

Carline Launceston Tasmania
Having been in Tasmania for a relatively short period of time, I've used Carline Launceston 4 times - for either vehicle inspections or mechanical repairs. On each occasion they have been exceptional. They are honest, accurate with quotations and their customer service is second to none. Recommended without hesitation!

Learning to live with it.
This thing is ingenious, at first I was just asking the time and playing my music. But Google has opened up a world of opportunities. I am literally learning new things it does everyday.

The google home is great and is very helpful in the household
The google home provides a great helping hand in the household and is great for organising and sorting out a busy lifestyle. The google assistant is a wonder of modern technology and is a massive help with various features such as: music, answers to all your questions and shopping lists, just to name a few.

Sometimes its annoying because it doesnt always pick up my voice, it gets confused easily but good for things like asking what the weather is/will be, play white noise (for my 7month old son). Only use it every now and then, good volume and I like the fact I can use it as a speaker for playing music around the house .

Google Home - our own PA
2 years on and we still use it everyday. We have auotmated lights which work a treat & the speaker is really clear for playing Spotify on, it sets up our calendars and reminds us of appointments. Grandchildren love it. Very happy with the product and highly recommend it. Great xmas present for others.
Waste of money!
Bought 3 google devices over the last 2 years & at first it worked for playing music & shopping list. Then we added more devices including the home hub for calendars, photos, maps, recipes on top of the music & shopping list. However recent updates have left it not responding to basic commands. And after over a year you still can’t use Gsuite accounts (yes that’s a google product) & yes it’s ‘on the roadmap’... but can I get any help from them no. They just say we’ll speak to the product team. Don’t waste your money buy Amazon or Apple!
Penrite Lubricants - great product and tech support.
When I commenced doing oil changes on my BMW motorcycle, I was overwhelmed with the oil choices available. I cross checked with the majors and they all confirmed the same recommended grade. I went with Penrite full synthetic 10w-40 with PAO-Ester and my bike ran much improved including better gear changes. Penrite's tech support was extremely helpful answering all my questions and gave me much patience and support. I thoroughly recommend Penrite, an Australian Company

It's a score of -10. Why has Google released this useless item, if it doesn't understand what i'm saying then it tells me it's still learning, I put on a stupid accent and it understand me better than my very clear Australian accent. I am getting random stupid answers to very simple questions or it tells me something that has no relevance to what i've just asked., DO NOT BUY... unbelievably frustrating and NOT user friendly.

Good but not great.
I have had this now for a month and still sounds OK. It can be a little hard to hear my voice commands but just get a little closer and speak clearly.This product relies on lots of subscription services to get the most out of it with music but great for using with you smart lights from Philips hue.

Just love it
I was given a Google Home as a Christmas present from my family. I absolutely love it!! I play music, find out general knowledge facts from google and set my alarms. It was so easy to set up and easy to use

Questions & Answers
Why does google home only support Telstra? I use amaysim and carrier is Optus.
I have not had this issue I am with Vodafone, It is not affiliated with your provider of access, some devices are limited and some more capable eg apples can use the google assistant but may not experience the full experience and on the other end the google Pixel phones have the latest and all the features for the assistant, it operates using your home wifi. any wifi, through your phone you need to connect to the same wifi network and you should have no troubles, I hope this helped you
