How to set up Step by Step

Step 1:

Setting Up the Google Home takes only just a few minutes, after which you’ll be off to the races. Once you plug in the device, it will automatically boot up and from there you’ll need to download the Google Home app to your phone, which is available for iOS and Android.

Step 2:

Open up the app and tap on “Accept” at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 3:

The app will inform you that your Google Home was found. Hit “Continue” to begin the setup process.

Step 4:

When the app connects to your Google Home, the device will play a test sound to confirm that it’s connected. Tap on “Play Test Sound” to begin that process.

Step 5:

Tap on “I Heard the Sound” in the bottom-right corner if you heard the Google Home device emit a sound. If not, select “Try Again”.

Step 6:

On the next screen, you’ll select which room your Google Home device is in. Simply tap on “Select a room” and choose a room. Once that’s done, hit “Continue” down at the bottom.

Step 7:

Next, you’ll connect your Google Home to your Wi-Fi network. Tap on “Select a Wi-Fi network” and select yours from the list.

Step 8:

Once it’s connected to your Wi-Fi, tap on “Sign In”.

Step 9:

On the next screen, you’ll be asked if Google Home can access your personal information, such as your calendar, notes, flight info, and so on. This allows Google Home to provide you with better results with certain voice commands (like asking what’s on your agenda for today). Keep in mind that anyone within speaking range can access this info. Select either “Allow” or “Skip” at the bottom

Step 10:

The next step is setting your location and giving Google permission to access it. The app will try to pinpoint your location, but if it’s off in any way, you can hit the pencil icon off to the right and enter in your location manually. Once you’re done, tap on “Set Location” down at the bottom.

Step 11:

On the next screen, you can choose whether or not you want to get email notifications about the latest news and info about Google Home. Use the toggle switch on the right and then hit “Continue”.

Step 12:

Next, you’ll select which music streaming provider you want to use with your Google Home. Obviously, Google Play Music and YouTube Music are options, but you can also link to Spotify or Pandora. Hit “Continue” when you’re done to move onto the next step.

Step 13:

After that, you may get a message saying that your Google Home is still updating, so sit tight for a few moments and wait for it to finish.

Step 14:

Once it’s done updating, it will need to reboot. Tap on “Reboot” in the bottom-right corner.

Step 15:

Once it reboots, the app will say that setup as completed. Hit “Continue” to move onto the tutorial or select “Skip Tutorial”.
