Google Home Description
Voice based automation is a newer area of the tech advancements we are witnessing. Google being one of the largest and most powerful corporations is also interested in this front. With the introduction of their Google Home speakers they have brought this to the market, soon after Amazon launched Amazon Echo that houses the voice now known as 'Alexa'. Google has yet to give their AI a personalised name which a lot of people think it should, taking the anthropomorphic route to make humans more at ease with the AI. The Google Assistant is also a part of the Android-based smartphone systems. The Google Assistant's rapport has been aided by writers from Pixar and The Onion to help it be able to have a more natural voice tonality and banter rather than sounding like it is a machine. Due to the presence of the Google Assistant these devices can actively send you reminders and warn you about traffic conditions and other such amenities that are there to keep you updated. As it is built with Machine Learning abilities it learns you over time and can then improve its performance in reference to you, making the searches and all other actions even more streamlined.
Google Home speakers developed for the automation of a space with the ability to control other devices that are WiFi ready, also known as Smart Devices. So you could ask your Google Home system to turn the brightness down of the lights in the lounge by 10% or whatever you feel is the need of the moment to set the mood! Granted you have the newer bulbs that connect to WiFi. These bulbs also have a varied colour range at times so you could set a different temperature for a room based on colour of light! There are so many uses like this especially the functional ones like the WiFi door lock, all you have to do is tell the Google home system to unlock the door or lock it. Or maybe you want to change the temperature on the AC without looking for the remote or needing to reach out for it. This device could sure make one lazy but for an efficient person it could be doing tasks for you while you use the extra time to do other tasks. A lot of smaller smart products are produced by another arm of Google known as Nest.
These systems are there to make life convenient so Google keeps adding functionality as they go with more upgrades you can also call and converse with the other Google Home devices through Google Duo, essentially making calls within the premises from the room to the lounge kind of like an intercom from the days past! There is also the option of playing different songs in different rooms through this system. Just being called Google Home doesn't necessarily mean it can only be used in homes, the areas of application are as varied as the spaces available. With the ability to discern between multiple voices as well so there are security features. At the same time there are great concerns today about these Google devices listening to everything happening inside a house as in these times personal online data has been used to sway opinions and change perceptions!
Available in a few different sizes and shapes, generally 2 colours - chalk and black. Which one you pick is based on the budget you have in mind, as the small one is a lot cheaper compared to the larger one!
