I am a pretty typical 30’s something mom. Which is to say, I try to keep up with the times and the latest gadgets but implementing new technology into my life is usually directly correlated with ease vs. benefit.
The concern with getting any new tech gadget for me is whether or not it will really be used in my daily life. Luckily, the Google Home was incredibly easy to get started. All I had to do was install the Google Home app on my phone to set up the wifi and some other basic settings.
The first thing I connected was my Pandora account so that I could stream music into our home. The second thing I did was have a dance party with the kids. The music was rich and clear and we had a blast.
Now, we always have music playing (especially in the mornings to get us started) and, of course, random dance parties thrown in. 🙂
Besides streaming music, my second favorite feature is its ability to translate things into Mandarin Chinese. I’m trying my best, but truthfully failing, to raise Max and Alexa bilingual. Max now loves to run up to our Google Home and shout “OK, Google! How do you say [most random thing] in Chinese?” The translations are accurate and come out in the tone of a native speaker.
