I’ve complete faith that I won’t have to re-teach my parents how to use the Google Home every time I come over – Emil Protalinski from VentureBeat
After all the taps and tests were done setting up Google Home, the beautiful thing is that there is just one action to learn: “OK Google”.
My parents have not heard of Alexa or Google Assistant…they’re not particularly tech-savvy. My father hates the burden of smartphones and my mother doesn’t even have a phone. But, I’ve complete faith that I won’t have to re-teach my parents how to use the Google Home every time I come over. The lack of buttons and user interface is perfect for older generations. Both my parents quickly got the hang of talking to the device.
The real joy, however, was watching my parents react the way kids do to something completely new. Wide-eyed and impressed, they wanted to know how this new piece of technology worked.
Once we had the Google Home working, my mother gleefully informed the two of us that she finally had someone who would listen to her every command.
Watching my parents get excited about how far voice recognition has come was absolutely priceless.
