With the Google Home going on sale in the USA a few weeks ago the more enterprising and impatient of Australian Tech enthusiasts immediately moved to get their hands on one (ours are stuck somewhere in Keasbey New Jersey) and they have started to arrive in the land Down Under.
Reddit user seadog3172 has taken to the Google Home subreddit to post his initial opinion. The verdict? Bloody amazing. We managed to contact the aquatic K9 and got a few more details. The far field mic is apparently awesome, with Google Home actually hearing commands on a recorded video and responding appropriately.
He’s only had the device for a few hours but apparently the whole family has already been having fun with the device. It seamlessly integrated into the existing Cast-network with audio and video streams being patched over via voice.
Localisation is still an issue, unsurprisingly seeing as the device isn’t even announced for Australia. New stories are US centric however location and other contextual searches seem to work ok . Apparently, a few videos of the device in use will be heading up soon!
