Better in the US


Initially when this first came out a few features like customisation commands were enabled. Google updated this and turned it off for the UK.

I could program my home to do stuff with certain catchphrases. E.g turn in my favourite tv show or put on a specific play list with ‘ok google you know what to do’ this was removed and said to be coming soon for the Uk half a year later. Still nothing! The states still have these commands

Other than this is has good functionality and hardware support!

Not really a great app - needs simplification.


This app needs to be simplified massively. I can access the same menus from 3 different places. It just seems like different people have interjected what they want this app to do. Please strip it down and make it easier to navigate. As an app it really doesn't do much despite having PAGES of different things all seemingly doing the same thing.

Also the UK support is pretty abysmal. Still no shortcuts and services. Zero transparency from google as always.

I love Google Home, but why are features missing in the UK?


I love my Google Home and Google Mini, I do a lot with them. However, I cannot say 5* because there are some important things missing versus what the box says/what others can use (such as in the US). The biggest is that I cannot make a call through Google Home, or even use it to call and find my phone. Until these features become available in the UK, I cannot rate it more than 3*
