Google Home




Went to JB Hi-Fi today, somehow a Google Home fell into my trolley.

Installation was simple, all the family is linked to the home so they can get their individual calendars when they ask.

I was able to Link Spotify, Netflix and Stan, playing music is easy, not tried to play a show from Stan or Netflix and chromecast to a TV yet.





Note to self, don’t play video near Google Home












Hey Google! can I please listen to Triple M


Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) today announced that its Hit Network and Triple M news and sports briefings are now available on the Google Assistant suite of connected speaker products including the Google Home.

Using a simple voice command listeners can now hear news and sport briefings from Triple M and news and entertainment from the Hit Network, on demand. Each briefing is updated several times a day and is spoken by SCA journalists as opposed to written text converted to speech by Google. SCA has secured a commercial partner for their news briefings on the Google Home, making them the first Australian media company to commercialise content specifically on a voice platform.

Guy Dobson, SCA’s Chief Creative Officer said, “With Amazon and Apple soon to join Google in the voice assistant market in Australia, it’s important we make sure Hit Network and Triple M content is easily accessible to this growing market.

“We’re very proud of the quality of the news our teams are creating and we’re always looking at innovative ways we can deliver our content to listeners, no matter which device or platform they use”.
