Google Home 23

Google Home aims to be your go-to digital assistant, enabling voice commands, phone actions, searches and more. But not much can be accomplished without the help of third party developers and manufacturers. As it goes with new technologies, support to other apps and products will be trickling in.

Are you wondering which apps will be supported at launch? Google has released an official list and it turns out you will be able to do quite a bit from the get-go.

Audio

  • Google Play Music
  • YouTube Music
  • Spotify
  • Pandora
  • TuneIn

Smart home

  • Google Chromecast
  • Nest Thermostats
  • Phillips Hue
  • Samsung SmartThings
  • IF by IFTTT

TV and Audio (Chromecast or Google Cast TV required)

  • YouTube

Tasks

  • Google Calendar
  • Google Keep

Of course, more app support will be coming in due time, but this is a good start considering the product is brand new. Those who want to learn more about Google Home can always check out our hands-on coverage and announcement post, which we will link to right below.

Who is signing up for Google Home? Are there any specific apps you would like to see in this list?

    can you sync multiple google accounts to the google home or just the one. as the wife and i would have different calendars could it pull up either upon request? that would be awesome

    • Brandito

      Apparently it’s just one account for now. I read somewhere they’re working on adding multiple account support in the future. My guess is they need to fine tune Home’s ability to distinguish voices.

      • MAS Googler

        They should allow “naming” to specify calenders, notes, and other account specific apps. Instead of relying on recognition of different voices.

        This way you can have a shared family calendar, and individual calendars, each not tied to your voice, but account names instead

          Great suggestion

    Quora is part of it. I use Quora all the time.

    How about Google Voice for phone calls?

  • osm

    Do Google Home devices appear as Google Cast audio targets?

    Really looking forward to getting one of these. I hope ‘Pocketcast’ are added soon to the list….
