Expert review

Google Home is more than just a wireless speaker. It houses Google Assistant for voice commands, offering you a wide range of capabilities. You can ask for the weather forecast and masses of other information, set timers and calendar reminders. But it's also a wireless speaker at its heart - so is the sound quality up to scratch? We took it to our lab for our comprehensive verdict on how it performs compared with rivals.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What is it?
  • What's the sound like?
  • What's it like to use?
  • What's it like as a smart hub?
  • Is there anything else I should know?
  • Should I buy it?
