Hey Brett. Two Questions. 1) I understand how the smart smart outlets work to a degree. Do you have to leave the light turned on all the time and then the smart outlet just cuts the power to te lamp? 2) How did you turn on a hardwired appliance with the google eco system?
Probably a silly question but does the Google home need to be apart of a group to actually use the voice controls? I have pretty high end Bluetooth speakers that I have scattered throughout including next to where I'm planning on putting my Google home. I'd prefer to just play through my quality speakers with the Chromecast audio and use the ease of voice commands withought having the music come out of it. Cheers
They on your need to be grouped if you want it playing on all the speakers at one time. You can have the Chromecast Audio set as the default music source for the Google Home, that way it will automatically play through your speaker of choice each time.
Great vids! Do you/does anyone know if you can put a chromecast ultra and a chromecast audio into one smart tv, essentially using a google home to play music on the tv's speakers (via the CC audio) or to play video (via the CC ultra)? ...Is that madness and there's a simpler way or will it not work at all?
I honestly had never thought of doing that but it should work if you change to correct input and your TV allows for an input from the Chromecast Audio through 3.5mm or an Optical cable. But just to be clear you can not pair the Google Home and the Chromecast (video) audio channels together.
Always very helpful your videos.
I have for about two weeks now my Google Home Mini. But sometimes it seems a bit lazy. In the first days I would say : Hey Google Good Morning, and she would reply normally to me. But in some days I say the same thing, she hears me (the sound and the lights blink) but she doesn't answer. Sometimes I have to say 3 times or even 4 in a row to get the usual answer, clock, forecast and other things. It's weird since she hears my voice because it makes the usual sound, the lights blink as she was thinking, but in the end I don't get an answer. Should I reset my Google Home Mini?
I made a reboot through the app, and it seems that it didn't work. Today early in the morning (no noise), I said more than 4 times in a row and nothing. Hey Google, and I ear the sound and light stays on, then I immediately say good morning, the lights blink, as she was thinking but nothing happens. The volume was one light and half ( you know what I mean). Then i raised the volume to two lights and then it responded normally to me.
So I'm guessing that the microphone sensitivity goes up or down like the volume. Can you test this with one of your Google Home Mini? Thanks.
Tech With Brett Thanks for the reply. No there is no noise, early in the morning.
Does the volume of the sound affect the sensitivity of the microphone? For example, if I put volume 2, will the sensitivity of the microphone will decrease as well?
I'm new to the Google Home, still a lot to learn with your help. I already have connected my TP-Link smart lights to the Google Home Mini and just bought a Chromecast to my LG smart tv.
Greetings from Madeira - Portugal.
My favorite video of yours so far! This will go well to convincing my household that switching from Echo to Home is the right idea. As well as switching from Apple Music to Google Play. I’m the lone Aindroid-er in a house of Apple sheep. Thanks again and Merry Christmas (late) and happy new year.
Hey Brett,, I have watched a few of your tutorials on the google home and the mini. You actually convinced me to buy some for christmas. So I bought 1 google home and 3 mini's and 2 chromecast's. I have my whole house covered with these little jems and now I have a problem. Why are they all connected? I ask Google to play a music choice and I get it in all 3 rooms and the garage? it seems to me that I should be able to play 4 different kinds of music on 4 different devices? wouldn't you think? how do I separate them? I know if I ask the GHome to broadcast it will do that just fine, but I want my separation as one is for my Dad who lives with us and I don't want know what he is doing as he still needs his privacy.. Right? I have one in my garage, one in our master bedroom and one in my wife's crafting room. HELP ME PLEASE from this mess that I have made... By the way I am a new follower as soon as I finish this letter... Later Brett, I look forward to your response.
+Van Keller Thank you for the follow! Have you created a group like in the video? It sounds like your Google Home is set to default to the group. Check on the settings of your Google Home app under the devices and under the Google Home you are talking to.
Hello jedi master once you have created a home group can you use the broadcast feature to only sound on the specific group? For example i get my kids a mini each and make just there speakers into a group would i be able to broadcast to just those speakers?
Brett I love your videos. I have two minis now and think I will get a third soon and have all three colors. I love the orange one. Wish they made an aqua one. Anyway, this was a great tutorial. The max is very big. I personally have no problem with the audio the minis put out. I got a white mini for my mother in law for Christmas and now I will tell her about your videos. Merry Christmas and Happy New year.
I ordered recently my Google Home Mini, hope to receive it soon. I just subscribed to your channel and gonna watch all you helping videos on how to get the most out of the Google Home assitant. Thank you for your time and effort you put on each video. Greetings from Portugal.
Brett, Thank you so much you helped me a lot , I have 2 google home mini and now with your help I have set up my home group and I have music playing on both of them. I am a 69 years young! lady. and I just love having the google home mini and now with your help you have made it easy for me to operate them. Your family is so beautiful, Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year Brett!
The audio group volume is new to me. Keep up the great work Brett. I've purchased 2 Homes, and 2 Minis for gifts for Christmas. I've got a Home and 3 Minis myself. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
First Merry Christmas! I don’t know if you can help, but I am going to ask:
Should I buy another Sonos Play 5 or a Google Home Max?
I have a Google Home. I bought a Sonos 5 because it has an auxiliary slot. I bought a Google Cast Audio device and plugged it into my Sonos 5. Now I can play anything I wish by voice command via my Google Play acct.
If I buy a 2nd Sonos Play 5 will they work together through my Google Home? Will I need to buy a 2nd Google Cast Audio device? Or will they NOT work together by voice command at all?
I will be grateful if you can answer my question.
Thanks for your work on this YouTube channel. It really is wonderful.
+Danbbqman You only will be able to pair the Sonos if they have Chromecast Audio attached to them.
Going with the Max you will get the great speaker with Google Assistant and it will work with your existing setup.
Tech With Brett Wow! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Yes. I have to set the Sonos app set as “auxiliary “. This makes everything run through the Google Audiocast device. I ask my Google Home to play an album and it it plays through the Sonos 5 speaker. I can change the volume by voice, too.
The thing is I paid $400 for the Sonos speaker. I want to pair it with another speaker to get some great sound in my living room/ kitchen. Will the new Google Max pair well with my Sonos 5? Or do I buy another Sonos 5 and operate both speakers through my Google Home? That brings me to my original question. Can I pair 2 Sonos speakers via one Google Home device?
Thanks again. I love your channel!
+Danbbqman Do you need to change the input on the Sonos to listen to the Chromecast Audio? The main benefit of the Max would be Google Assistant built in and not worrying about input if that is a problem. You could go with another Sonos and then you would need a second Chromecast Audio device. You can pair them in a group just Like I do in the video. In the Google Home you can choose the group as the preferred way to listen to music and you can do it by voice. I hope that helps.
Hi Brett, how when I watch you video on your phone show all your devices and you can do things with them . I have Chromecast, Chromecast audio, Google Home Mini and on my samsung Galaxy 7 the Google Home and G Assistant, BUT every time I open the app don't show my devices like I can see on your phone ONLY "Linked Device" actually I have four. So, I can't do for example, Drop photo on Chromecast. And I don't understand why when we go outside for shopping or back from work, we try to watch YT videos don;t read our devices I have to unplug and plugin devices in order to show up; If they are already on the same wifi, registe on my account.....then why this happen. Thank Brett, I really enjoy and learn with your video.
Tech With Brett Merry Christmas.Thank you so much Brett, you was rigth I reboot the wifi and Wala there is all my devices. Oh and I follow what you tech on this video OMG I hook my speaker and mini WAOOO!! Blast Party. Thank you.
+Angel L. Garcia Lopez Ok, You may need to reach out to Google support or work with your internet provider. I will see if I can figure out what else to try. You may just want to reboot your Router and home devices to see if thst helps.
Thanks for a nicely done tutorial. I especially appreciate you muting the "Hey Google" as it is a real pain to watch one that isn't doing and unfortunately that's most everyone. For a lot of folks the soundbar on their TV is one of the better speaker groups in their house. I plug a Chromecast Audio into mine and it becomes part of the group. Of course I have to use the soundbar remote to shift to the input used Chromecast Audio, but it works well.
i have one of the first google homes that come out ,i lost the audio on my moto z
what i mean i cannot get any audio out of my amartphone because of google home
how do i fix smartphone and separated from my google home.
p.s. play music. thank you stephen.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
