The Abode that listens

Connection is what we all crave in today’s world. The feeling of being heard and understood without being judged is unparalleled. That’s exactly what Google Home strives to do for you in your comfortable space- home. Imagine coming home after a long day at work, you want your smart TV to play your favourite show of ‘Lucifer’ on Netflix but you just cannot find your remote. You’re also preoccupied with the grocery list that you’ve been asked to buy by your partner, the list keeps fluctuating in your mind. You feel lazy to move or even think. Two simple voice commands of “Ok Google, Play Lucifer on Netflix” and “Ok Google, make me a grocery list” could do the job for you. Phew! Life made easier? Google Home is a smart home device and portable speaker that makes your life easier by performing small-yet-vital tasks like managing your media, tasks and planning events for your day. Google Home requires a good-enough WiFi connection with a moderate speed for it to process and react to the commands that are being fed-in by the user. Google Home’s AI may work very  organically like a human-assistant would be, but the reality of it dips by the fact that it lacks a real name. “Google Assistant” is what it’s called predominantly, unlike its fellow competitors with a real name like Amazon’s “Alexa” and Apple’s “Siri”. With the anticipated growth of IoT (Internet of Things) in the following years, the home appliances compatible with Google Home are expected to improve, enabling more tasks to be completed over the voice command. These tasks might include turning on/off fans, tubelights, ACs, stoves, ovens etc. Google Home is that futuristic investment that you can make to improve the vibe and comfort a peaceful abode. Experience the luxury of having a virtual assistant always at your command.
