Google Home Pros and Cons Review: Advantages & Disadvantages Fri, 20 Oct 2017 13:00:27 +0000 In my Google Home pros and cons article, I review its features that are 2nd to none. I also specify show stopper issues such as the annoying way it ...

Google Home Facebook GroupThinking about buying a Google Home?

Want to know if you should get this device or an Amazon Alexa device instead? Before making your purchase, check out the Google Home pros and cons listed in this article. I review the reasons why you should consider Google Home over other devices, and why you might want to wait until it supports more features.

Buy the Google Home Now

Google Home Pros and Cons

Please note that the Google Home pros and cons listed in this review reflects the current functionality of the device, as of October 2017.  Just like the Amazon Echo before it, expect more features and functionality to be added to Google Home over time. For now, check out my current assessment.

Google Home Pros and Cons Review Advantages and Disadvantages - pros

Google Home Pros

Here are some of the pros and advantages of the Google Home wireless speaker:

  • Second to none in its ability to answer questions. The biggest advantage Google Home has over other voice controlled apps and devices is its ability to to provide factual responses to questions.  The device leverages Google’s Knowledge Graph, a system that contains millions of facts about people, places, and things, and how all of these entities are connected. This allows Google Home to provide responses to questions far beyond the capabilities of other voice controlled apps and devices. Google Home can also understand follow up questions. For example, you can get answers to questions like, “How are the Sixers doing?” and “When is their next game?”.
  • Can cast video to your TV. The second biggest advantage the Google Home has is the ability to cast video to your TV. Currently, you can cast video from YouTube. Support for Netflix and other video services are expected to be added over time.
  • Can identify different voices: Initially a missing feature, this ability ensures that multiple people can get personalize results for GH.
  • Can cast audio to multiple devices. Using Chromecast Audio, you stream music to one or more sets of speakers in different rooms.
  • Supports Google Play Music and YouTube Music. These services are not available on Alexa devices.
  • Pretty good sound quality considering its size. For casual music listening, I think Google Home sounds good.
  • Appears to understand my Spotify requests better than Alexa devices. In my personal experience, I’ve encountered far fewer mistakes with Home versus Alexa. Your mileage may vary.
  • Aesthetic design and customizable appearance. Google Home looks like a small piece of furniture that can be customized to match your decor. The Echo looks like a speaker while the Echo Dot looks like a hockey puck.
  • Hands-free calling. You can make calls with your voice to any number in the US and Canada.
  • Step by step cooking instructions: Google Home will walk you through preparing food. I’m not sure how useful this is, however. If GH ever gets a display, this feature would be really cool.
  • Works with free Spotify Accounts: Enough said!
  • Bluetooth audio streaming: This is another feature it should have had in the beginning but I’m glad it’s available now.
  • Availability: Google Home is (or will be) available in these countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom, United States (except Puerto Rico).

Google Home definitely has some positive traits. But what about the negatives? Check them out below.

Google Home Pros and Cons Review Advantages and Disadvantages cons

Google Home Cons

Here are some of the cons, limitations, and drawbacks of the Google Home:

  • GH doesn’t have as many skills as the Amazon Echo: While I’m happy about the skills GH has acquired since its launch, it still trails the Amazon Echo in skill count. With that said, more analysis is required to determine how big the actual gap is.
  • GH also lags in third-party support when compared to Amazon Echo: As of this writing (August 2017), Amazon Echo has more compatible smart home products and accessories than the Google Home.
  • GH doesn’t have a built-in screen. Google Home can display results on a tablet or on your TV, but this is not the same as having a dedicated display like the Amazon Echo Show.
  • Can’t read or send emails or messages. You’ll have to use your phone for that.
  • Can only recite items in our main calendar. Home doesn’t support shared or secondary calendars.
  • Costs more than the comparable second generation Amazon Echo. Something to consider.
  • Doesn’t have an audio out port. An additional $35 Chromecast Audio purchase is required to stream to external speakers
  • It’s powered by Google Assistant, which is different than Google Now. This may create some confusion for people that already make use of Google Now powered phones and tablets.
  • Launch phrase not customizable. Thus, multiple devices may respond, or at least, wake up when you use the launch phrase. Also, your devices will occasionally be activated by Google TV commercials.
  • I don’t like the lack of buttons on the top of the device. I find the swipe-oriented volume control to be finicky and annoying. I’d much prefer physical buttons or clearly marked capacitive buttons, and not the current where’s Waldo button implementation.
  • Doesn’t hear me from a distance as well as the Amazon Echo does. Your mileage may vary.

As you can see, Google Home definitely has some missing features. Should you still consider buying it? Check out my buyer’s recommendation below.

Google Home Pros and Cons Review Advantages & Disadvantages

Should you Buy Google Home?

Before you buy any voice-activated device, the first question you need to answer is, what will you use it for? Will you use it to play music (and subscribe to a paid music subscription)? Will you invest in compatible smart home devices? Will you use it to ask questions or to play games? If any of this appeals to you, then you might find a voice-activated device to be worth its cost.

Google Home versus Amazon Echo

Once you decide to buy a voice activated device, the second question to answer is, should you buy a Google Home or the Amazon Echo? Here are my suggestions:

Get the Google Home if you…

  • Want to ask complex questions that leverage Google’s Knowledge Graph.
  • Want to make free, voice-activated telephone calls.
  • Want the device to recognize different voices.
  • Want to cast audio and/or video.

Get the Amazon Echo if you…

  • Want more options for compatible smart home products and accessories.
  • Want to use skills not offered on the Google Home.
  • Want to use Amazon services you already pay for, such as Amazon Prime, Amazon Video, Amazon Music, etc.
  • Want a built-in screen.

The third option, of course, is to buy a Google Home Mini and an Amazon Echo Dot. This is the cheapest way to get the best of both worlds.

Which decide will you choose?

Will you buy the Google Home? Will you get the Amazon Echo? Will you get both devices or none at all? Share your thoughts in the comments.

  3. Change the Allow “Hey Siri” setting to “On” if you want to access Siri hands-free.*

PS4 Not Turning On? Try My PS4 Fix!

Experiencing the PS4 Blue Light of Death? If Your PS4 won’t turn on, I may have a fix for you!

When the PlayStation 4 (PS4) was released in late 2013, many users reported encountering what is now known as the PlayStation Blue Light of Death. What is the PS4 Blue Light of Death? It’s a general fault error indicated by a pulsing blue light from the console. When this happens, typically there’s no video or audio output from the Ps4. You may also observe that the PS4 turns on then off.

This issue doesn’t happen as often as it use to. It can happen for a variety of reasons. In this article, I provide you with the steps that appear to address a specific issue with HDMI syncing. The fix doesn’t require checking or swapping cables.  The fix doesn’t require doing anything with the hard drive.  I was basically able to fix the PS4 Blue Light of Death in a couple minutes.

This solution doesn’t help everyone.  In my opinion, the fix is worth a try as long as you heed the warnings. Hopefully, we will get your PS4 white light back again! See the step by step directions below.

PS4 Won't Turn On - PS4 Blue Light of Death Fix Playstation 4 BLoD

How to Fix the PS4 Blue Light of Death

Below is a step by step guide I used to solve the PS4 Blue Light of Death:

WARNING: My fix includes the step of connecting the HDMI cable while the TV and the PS4 are on. This may cause damage to the TV or PS4.  Follow these instructions at your own risk!!! Safer, but untested alternative methods are below as well.

  1. Power off your PS4 by pressing the power button until the PS4 powers off.  You know the PS4 is off when the light is off.  Be certain the PS4 is off before you continue.
  2. Unplug all of the cables from the PS4.  This includes the power cable, HDMI cable, USB cable, optical cable, etc.
  3. Plug in the power cable and no other cable.  That’s right, do not plug in the HDMI cable yet.
  4. Press the power button until the PS4 beeps twice.  It will beep, then beep again in a few seconds.  A few seconds later, the blue light will turn white!  If it does not, this PS4 Blue Light of Death fix will not work for you.
  5. Next, I plugged in the HDMI cable while the PS4 was displaying the white light and the TV was on.  WARNING: Connecting the HDMI port while the TV or the PS4 is on may cause damage to the TV or PS4.  Follow these instructions at your own risk!!!!
  6. An alternative method would be to first turn off the PS4 and turn off an unplug the TV. Connect the HDMI cable to the PS4 and the TV,  Power on the PS4 by holding the power button until it beeps twice, see the white light, THEN plug in and turn on the TV.
  7. A third option would be to select a different source on your TV, see the white light on the PS4, then select the appropriate HDMI source on the TV.  Please note that I have not tested any of these alternative methods as I do not currently have a BLOD PS4 near by.
  8. Make sure you select the corresponding HDMI input on your TV.  You should then see on the screen a prompt to plug in the USB cable and Dual Shock controller.  Please do so.  You will now be in PS4 Safe Mode.PS4 Won't Turn On - PS4 Blue Light of Death Fix Playstation 4
  9. On the safe mode screen, select 2. Change Resolution.  Then click ok.  The PS4 will then restart.
  10. At this point, you should reach the PS4 Setup.  If not, repeat the steps above and try 6. Initialize PS4.
  11. If you still don’t reach the PS4 Setup, and your PS4 won’t turn on, I was not able to fix your PS4 Blue Light of Death.  Contact Sony for a replacement.
  12. If you do reach the PS4 Setup, follow all the steps.  Be certain to update the system software to at least 1.51.  After 1.51 is installed, test shutting down and turning on the PS4 to ensure that the BLoD has been fixed.
