Just in time for Jareds birthday we received the brand new Google Home. You heard it here first: it's minimal design, clean sound output and voice activation makes this thing a perfect addition to any home. Simply, it's amazing.
We spent the morning playing trivia and asking Google how to say "Happy Birthday" in other languages. I've been learning all the commands; such as adding things to a shopping list and playing music on Pandora. But I have to say that one of the best features is setting a morning alarm and being able to silence it by saying "Okay Google, turn off the alarm, I'm sleeping in". And without another peep, it just stops.
Thanks again to Google for this beautiful thing; not only is it functional and the speaker gets super loud (especially in my studio) but it also matches our apartment!
