What's New in Version 1.25.1215
Say hello to the new Google Home app. We’re introducing a new look and a better way to browse your favorite music and videos.
Need an account to use app
Really disappointed in the fact that I need to link my gmail with the Google Home app. Unfortunately I had set my phone to auto update all apps and now I am locked out of my Google Home app because I do not want to log in with my gmail account. I believe that Google is doing this so they can learn more about what you are watching and this is yet another way for them to infiltrate your life and learn more about you so you can be bombarded with even more advertisements. This is the end of the line for Google Home on my phone. I would rather use a 3rd party app without having to set up an account and I am saddened by the fact they choose to go this route. I miss the old version where I didnt have to sign in so now auto updating apps is off and I’ll make sure to read the update description before hitting update. Thanks for the lesson Google.
Not Google Worthy
Most of the time half my devices don't show up under my devices. Can’t seem to add a second persons voice. All around the app is just hit or miss, needs work.
Also, google home has a very hard time picking up on the wake words, again hit or miss. The new google home mini However works flawlessly when responding to its wake words.
I believe the new google home mini was designed with better far field microphones, but on the downside google messed up by mass producing the mini’s with a hardware defect forcing them to permanently disable the top button. How can google think that’s ok? Why should anyone buy that?
Sometimes it works sometimes it won't stop buffering
I have a love/hate relationship with Chromecast. Connection and streaming can work flawlessly and recently I've been suffering with continuous buffering and stream freezing.
After checking both my internet speed and connectivity I then checked my router and the connection is great.
Not sure what's going on but can it stop already. I wonder if others are having the same issues?.
