  • It is great

    By Anoyamose Person
    It is good, But it still has some bugs and kinks here and there, But overall, Its Great !
  • Frustrated

    By akptgirl
    Why is it when music is playing google just stop and have have to try again! Even then when you ask her to play a song or artist it’s like she ignores you!
  • Garbage app

    By darkelementshadow
    Can’t even reset up my devices that I paid for without bending over backwards and getting screwed. Have to hand over location access and Bluetooth control. Essentially forgo all privacy and security rights to this notoriously unscrupulous data selling company that is completely ridiculous. I had my devices set up before but when I changed my WiFi network it completely destroyed my ability to use them and it has been months that I haven’t been able to jump through enough hoops to get them reset up again with takes forever since it is so needlessly hard, frustrating and unsafe. I would never recommend buying into this system since all it takes is a tiny malfunction to break the link and you are back to square one since you can’t just simply update your network settings.
  • Hard to navigate

    By Starwarsislove
    The app itself is hard to navigate. Also would love an option to change the wake word, “hey google” doesn’t really roll of the tongue
  • I have YouTube premium and it still does not play my exact songs I ask for

    By Apollo/fornitebeast
    Youtube premium and i cant even play the exact songs i want its super annoying like whats the point of a google dot then?
  • Terrible Nest integration

    By graytgirl
    I used my Google account to create my Nest account but now, when I try to link the Nest to Google Home, the login screen does NOT let me log in with Google. So, since I don’t have a Nest username and password, I can’t connect them. Tried the ‘forgot password’ link, but nothing happened. Tried my Google login but got an error to login using Google. But you can’t. The button isn’t there. Nice work, Google.
  • Listens Too much

    By butcher sr
    I can be on the phone and it starts asking me questions or says it doesn’t understand, even without saying hey google. Google invading in our personal lives even more than before...

  • Casting Issues

    By willyv4pres
    I thought my issue was for the ESPN app, as casting it prompted me to get kicked out every 3ish minutes. Then I realized it was happening for TNT as well. No Disney or Netflix issues so maybe just a live stream?? Not sure what’s going on, just really annoyed because it never used to happen!
  • Useless garbage

    Im so glad i got the google home mini for free from spotify. It literally has no purpose if u have a speaker. Ny google home currently is in a technology recycling bin, going to dispose of it with other electrical waste.

  • Google Home Mini Impossible to Set Up

    By Creeper103
    I’m trashing this Google Home Mini. Need an app, google account, set up assistant, trouble shooting. Spent an hour still not working. Setting up Alexa? 60 seconds. Flipping Google just wants all my info. Useless.
  • Honestly the ecosystem for google is way more user friendly.

    By frankgib1
    I still have an iPhone 11 Pro Max but I have everything else in my house and gym google/android. Like google home mini actually reads to you when you ask it something. It’s able to control my tv with my google home mini. I can honestly upload photos with my google chromecast to my tv easily. Honestly it’s more seamless and way cheaper than the bootleg Apple ecosystem. MOST IMPORTANT BETTER, SECOND MOST IMPORTANT CHEAPER. If you don’t believe me try it yourself.
  • The wifi design and ux are very poor

    By Anonreviewer2016
    Please get the workflow, design straightened out. I can never quite figure out family settings
  • Makes no sense

    By lkabdhxusnsiahvd
    Set up is terrible and I still can’t figure basic things like being able to update the password so my Chromecast can connect to the WiFi.
  • The app I had in a long time and no I am NOT a mom

    I have to keep resetting it up
  • Google Home is nice!! I love you.

    By ChanBlitz
    Awesome Google Home.
  • No support for older ios

    By Haidoge
    I never update my ios since it bricks older phones and this terrible app requires the latest version to use with any google device. Since changing my wifi I have been effectively locked out of my google home devices and they have become glorified paperweights that can't use a slightly older version of the app for whatever reason and have no pc support.
  • Excellent

    By Harish Brahmbhatt
    Service provided is beyond expectations
  • Stick to Alexa

    By noxola
    All of a sudden it stopped working. Support is no help!
  • Bull crap

  • Do you want me or not

    By OTIMF
    I already spent the $ to buy the device, I can listen to Spotify, Pandora and ITunes music on my phone, now you make it more difficult to listen to my music on the Home device? Why am I wasting my time with you? Do you want me or not. Cause right now, I’m outta here! ✌🏼
  • Google Nest Hub has a clumsy UI and unreliable

    By Poopmytfmhgfjhft
    I have owned a Google Nest Hub for 6 months. The configuration of this device is an abomination to software development and user experience. I haven’t seen something so unintuitive and overly complicated in my 25 years of doing software.
  • Google home app no WiFi setting option

    By angieandnic
    I cannot use my Google app to control volumes to my Google mini or my Google Chromecast. it says some settings are unavailable. It says to Connect my Wi-Fi. But my devices are on Wi-Fi. and my devices work fine. i’m having issues with the app and it seems like I’m not the only one.
  • Alexa is better by far

    By HaleyColeisnumberone
    My google home mini restarted for some odd reason. Tried to reconnect it through the app. The app can’t even find it. You would think it would be a breeze since it’s a google product, but no. Now my mini is even more useless than before. Alexa answers questions and plays music without having to mess with the app. With google, I always had to refer to the app to “set something up.” It can’t even play the news. It just says “sorry, I’m having difficulties, try again later” (this is when the mini was actually working). Everything should be set up once connected to the internet and the app. It could be the google mini that’s busted. Even still, it’s a google product that’s supposed to work in tandem with this app. I definitely recommend Alexa for a better, more smooth-line experience. And no, I am not affiliated with Amazon. It’s just way better.
  • Need to fix bugs, google WiFi app was better

    By pomprocker
    Will not give higher rating until the app showing routers and pucks offline when they are DEFINITELY not offline is fixed
  • Hard to connect

    By Audrod
    Very hard to connect to radio stations
  • Good concept, limitations frustrating

    By APMProduction
    I bought one of the Mini nest speaks as there was a sale price I couldn’t refuse. But, it’s inability to follow REAL WORLD NEEDS IT WOULD ACTUALLY ACHIEVE WHAT THE ORIGINAL DREAM TRULY WAS 🙏🙏🙏🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻
  • Constant WiFi problems

    By Cojak Lamone
    The apps is on to something good but still has major connection and WiFi problems. I have kids and have them on a usage schedule through the Google Home app. I’m also using the google WiFi router as well. I constantly have issues where the WiFi will stop working for one of the computers or other device. The “pause” or “not pause” option (which is confusing anyways) always gets stuck or shows “paused” when it’s not or vice versa. This wouldn’t be a big deal if Covid didn’t have my kids schooling from home. I’ve stayed on top of updating the app but I still have problems. Another issue I have is connecting to 3rd party smart media. The interface is always confusing with too many options and flowcharts. Make it simple guys. I went to school for computer information systems and I get stuck sometimes, think about all those elderly folks, they probably have to hire someone to set up google products. Google has never been like Apple where it’s user interface is super easy to adapt to. The programmers need a separate user interface team for just about all of their software. You guys are good but you need some big changes.
  • Normally works But the last update messed it up

    By Froggersman90
    It no longer turns off anything that no longer turns on anything it no longer seems to know that it has devices connected to the app... how do you guys not find this? 3 of are Apple products doesn’t work but android is just fine... complete garbage on your employees
  • Doesn’t work with NESR

    By jca619
    While it may be effective with other products (not sure which) NEST cam is not one of them. Continually loses connection and doesn’t work the other half.
  • Why can’t I change the volume on individual speakers now??

    By itunesman13
    There used to be a feature when streaming to speaker groups that I could adjust the volume on individual speakers? Now I just have the option to adjust the volume of the same group. Why would google take away that feature?? Super annoying.
  • google wifi app was so much better

    By HiccupTheGreat
    just worse in every way, impossible to do basic tasks. for shame google.
  • Casting media

    By Cabo_8080
    I have used these to cast Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube all through out our house. Just recently it quit casting youtube which I use 65% of the time. Very upsetting!!!!
  • Horrible

    By Toad Hop Fan
    I am never buying another google device again it’s take. 4 hours to just change my WiFi on my devices but app is so bad it is worthless
  • Works great with google products but.......

    By kevins1143
    Does not play well with other apps such as feit smart bulbs. Have tried everything suggested on web and by feit.
  • Works but...

    By Brece675
    Love this app. I’m able to control all my home devices in one app.. I’ve noticed that unlinking a service doesn’t work as well on iOS as it did on my android device. It will tell me the service is unlinked but the devices are still listed in my home. I did the same process on my android phone and it worked fine.
  • Issues

    By shhh r
    I rated google a 3. They need a lot of work to do. I’m starting to begin to read about their new app called my mail. Looks like a big improvement.
  • Always gives me difficulties!

    By Muse Worthy
    Can’t play music all the time. Tells me to sign into app which I do! Still nothing! Plus sometimes the music through the unit sounds Crackly. More headache then it’s worth. My Alexa never gives me issues! Fix it!

  • Now Honeywell Home does not link

    By Rick.ro33
    This update broke the synchronization of my Honeywell Home account to Google Home. It stoped connected to my Honeywell Device, so when I tried to unlink & relink. It says “something went wrong” after trying to Relink my Honeywell Home. I’ve contacted Google for support and they could not figure it out.
  • Almost done

    By izziy6
    I am not tech savvy so things like this don’t come easy. I have numerous times tried to set it up and when I have gone through the set up and I can’t find anything else to do it says almost done! What am I missing because my app says I’m done with no other instructions
  • Can’t use older chrome cast

    By Jrow8876
    Will not find older chrome cast models. Had to throw it away because the app won’t Bluetooth to the device so I can connect to the new WiFi. I hate companies that force you into buying newer products. Greedy! The chrome cast worked fine until this new app and update.... buying a Ruko never have a problem with it.
  • Keep Losing SiriusXM controls but music keeps playing

    Keep losing controls when playing SiriusXM radio
  • Most pointless thing I was ever given

    By I_Hate_Reviews
    I got a google home hub as a christmas gift from my employer. If it weren't given to us, we never would have purchased it. And after using it for 3 years now, I can honestly say that I would rather give all my business to Amazons products. It will never play the correct you tube videos or save them, yet the assistant is supposedly learning from you. Randomly in the middle of programs, my tv, that was never directly connected to the hub, will start streaming to it. Then the clock face stays blurry and useless until you unplug the device.
