From settling disputes and checking facts to Google Home can bring in the big game (not to mention the children everyone else in the other room had forgotten), and help bring order to the otherwise chaotic battlefield that is the Thanksgiving dinner of many families.
This is how you can use Google Home this year to gather the troops for a victorious Thanksgiving Day party.
Resolve conflicts and avoid total war
A large enough Thanksgiving Day is likely to draw family and friends from a broad strip of political beliefs, and unfortunately those may be some who try to hash out of all the world's problems with mashed potatoes and filling. But even if everyone stays civil, holiday discussions can sometimes come to an end when two people cannot agree on historical facts. That is the time to mediate Google Home.
With the power of Google search at its core, Google Home can resolve virtually any fact-based dispute by just asking about it, from history and politics to sports and culture and more. Some examples:
- "Hey, Google, what year was the Battle of Normandy?"
- "OK, Google, how many votes did Ronald Reagan have in the 1980 elections?"
- "Hey Google, which countries have sent people into space?"
If there is no right or wrong answer, but a decision has to be made, such as when the children cannot agree or they go to Home Alone 1 or 2, let only one person choose the head or tail and say, "OK, Google, turn a coin." If it's good enough to decide which team gets the kick-off, it should be good enough to choose a movie or settle other disputes about turkey day.
When sport is no longer a game
I am not a big sports fan on another day of the year, but I grew up in Michigan where the Detroit Lions play every Thanksgiving, so I love to tune in, though it's just for a shot of nostalgia. You can check the score or get information about almost any game by asking Google Home. And the best thing is that you don't have to remove your phone to do this, so you don't offend anyone by being sucked into your screen. Some examples:
- "OK, Google, what is the score in the game of the lions?"
- "Hey Google, what time do the lions play today?"
- "OK, Google, who play the lions?" today? "
If that doesn't work and you need minute-by-minute reporting, you can also use Google Home to tune into any game broadcast on a radio station anywhere in the country (and a lot from around the world). All you need to know is which station is broadcasting your favorite team's games. If you don't know yet, you can also ask Google Home. Like this:
- "Hey Google, which radio station is broadcasting the games from Detroit Lions from? "
- Immediately after Google Assistant replies, say the name of the station, such as:" Play WJR 760 AM. "
Keeping track of all kids
When guests move across multiple rooms in distributing one house, you can check in without getting up, which is a blessing if standing up means that five people also have to cut down their seats. With multiple Google Home speakers you can send the necessary messages.
You start the conversation by calling Google Assistant and then the words & # 39; broadcast & # 39; to use, http://www.cnet.com/ & # 39; announces & # 39; http://www.cnet.com/ & # 39; shout & # 39; or & # 39; tell & # 39; to everyone & # 39; followed by the message you want to broadcast. Some examples:
- "Hey, Google, broadcast, & # 39; The food is ready!" Http://www.cnet.com/ "
- " OK, Google, announce, & # 39; Does anyone need more turkey? "Http://www.cnet.com/" cialis19659018Buch "Hey, Google, call: & # 39; Who wants to help with the dishes?" Http://www.cnet.com/ "
After Google Home your message has played, anyone on the receiving end can get a chance to respond, but keep in mind that although broadcast messages go to all Google Home devices in your home, replies only go back to the speaker where the message came from, so not everyone in the house has to hear the conversation.
If you want to show your Google Home to all your family and friends who use other assistants, check out these three things Google Home can do that Alexa and Siri can't do. this all sounds great, but recently one of your Google Home smart speakers has stopped working, this is what you need to do to request a free replacement from Google .Finally, smart speakers in every room not only provide great intercom system voice, you can change them in a whole-house audio system for music, podcasts, radio and more with our instructions here.
