Google adds a bunch more services to Google Home allowing you access to more productivity and games


Google Home is still a very young platform, however it’s growing up fast with Google recently introducing new partners and today more services for you to interact with.

The new list of services can be found in the Google Home app under the ‘Services’ section when you look at your Google Home. There’s a lot of new entries and if you want to use them you’ll have to connect them to your account first. Once you’ve linked your account in Google Home, the entry for each service includes a list of commands you can use to interact with the service in Google Home.

The complete list of new services seems to include:

  • 21 Blackjack
  • Akinator the genie
  • Anchor
  • And Chill
  • Argus
  • Ask Jelly
  • busuu – language learning
  • CNBC
  • Domino’s
  • ELLE Horoscopes by The Astro Twins
  • FitStar Personal Trainer
  • Food Network
  • Genius
  • Headspace
  • HuffPost Headline Quiz
  • itcher
  • Lonely Planet
  • NBC News
  • NPR One
  • Product Hunt
  • Quora
  • Quotery
  • SongPop
  • Sub War
  • Tender
  • The Bartender
  • The Wall Street Journal
  • Todoist
  • Trivia Blast
  • VentureBeat News
  • WebMD
  • Wonder

There’s a lot here, but as Google Home is only ‘officially’ available in the US, some of these like the Dominos integration will only be available for the US based equivalents. This obviously will be resolved as Google goes global with the launch of Google Home, though exactly when that will be hasn’t been announced.

Have you imported Google Home? Will you be using any of these new services?

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
