Unlike Amazon’s Alexa, you don’t need to download or install anything to add features to Google Home. New features are always being added behind the scenes, and usually, all you have to do to use them is to ask. (For example, “Hey, Google, I need a recipe for sugar cookies.”) Other tricks, including some of them, only require you to link your existing account to Google Home (see later, very easy and fast to complete) .
So please stay till the end, because Google Home is most likely the five things you should ask, and it can answer you in amazement.
Ask where the lost car key is
There are two ways for Google Home to find your car key, depending on whether you use a Tile tracker.If you don’t, next time you put your key in a drawer or other place where you don’t normally store it, just say: “Hey Google, remember I put the key under the kitchen sink [or wherever you put them]. “Then, next time you can’t find them, say, “OK, Google, where did I put the keys”, and Google Home will tell you.
If there is a Tile tracker on the keychain, so much the better. Google can ring for you so you can find it.
1. turn on Google Home app, Then tap + Sign in the upper left corner and select Setting up the device, Then tap Cooperation with Google.
2. Tap magnifier In the upper right corner, then type “tile” and click Tile logo Appears below the search bar.
3. Log in to Tile just like from a browser and follow all the prompts on the screen.
Now you can say “Hey” or “OK, Google will call my keychain [or whatever you’ve named the Tile attached to your keys]”, the next thing you know is that your keys will start buzzing. This trick applies to anything you connect the Tile tracker to, such as school bags, pets, etc.
Order your favorite Starbucks drink with your voice
Next time you are in a hurry and don’t have time to wait to place an order, please give your Starbucks order to Google Home and it will be handed over to you so that you can take it away when you are ready. For this tip, you need to link your Starbucks account, so you need the Google Assistant app.
1. turn on Google Assistant app then click Compass icon In the lower right corner.
2. Type “Starbucks” in the search bar and click Starbucks logo Appears below the search bar, then click link, Then tap Link accounts.
If you are not logged in to Starbucks on your phone, you must enter your username and password, but for most people, everything else should happen automatically. From there, say, “Hey” or “OK, Google, chat with Starbucks” and tell the virtual barista what you want to order.
Google Home is a dictionary, thesaurus, calculator, etc.
The next time you watch TV, when a character says a word you’ve never heard before (such as “gasconading” or “coruscant”), don’t reach for the dictionary-just ask Google Home what the word means. “Ok, Google, what is the definition of’abnormal’?” or “Hey, Google, what does’cupidity’ mean?” If you need help with thesaurus, translation or word games, you can do that too (please click here Check out the full article about all the clever operations that Google Home can do in language).
Are you a word expert in mathematics? Google Home will also help you there. You can use Google Home far more than a calculator, but it can be days, weeks, or years. Convert measurement units; handle distances and many other calculations (check here for the full article on all the numbers that Google Home can handle).
Let Google Home read your horoscope
You don’t have to learn astrology, otherwise you won’t listen to astrology. And, if you don’t like the way Google Home reads the stars for you for the first time, you can easily try other services. Just say, “Hey, Google, what is my zodiac sign?” It will provide you with a list of zodiac providers you can extract from.
Arm yourself with dad’s jokes
Do you know what makes puns a joke for dad? It’s my parents (Shhh.) As a dad who loves delicate single lines, I’m always looking for the next great ginshou. You can ask “Hey” or “OK, Google, tell me a dad’s joke” to start learning, but for “Caramel Cream”, please say “Tell me a joke with the best dad”.
Google Home is full of amazing, hidden talents. First of all, it is an excellent game machine, especially if you like role-playing narrative adventures. Or try to plan future commands using the new planning function. Of course, for most people, it is not. One thing they have to do is listen to music, so be sure to set it up like this for the best experience.
