Officially is Google Home only as from 24 October for sale in the Netherlands, but the smart speaker now appears to be our language to speak. A handful of imported specimens may on English.
Google Home English setting, you do so
Although the Google Home actually only at the end of this month in the Netherlands, is the speaker, of course, already for a longer time to sale in neighbouring countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom. Interested users are now required to have English at their speaker to speak, but that is changing fast. Faster than expected, apparently. Even for the Dutch Google Home release is the option already available for existing users, as discovered Androidworld.
An informer of the site reports since today the Dutch language to be able to set. The option is as follows:
- Open the Google Home app on your smartphone;
- Open the settings;
- Select ‘Preferences’ and then ‘Language Assistant’;
- Press “add A language” and select “Dutch (Netherlands)” in the list that appears;
The feature is gradually being rolled out, and is still not available for everyone. The Google Home to the editors of Android Planet speaks, for example, still only English. Probably the Dutch language within a few days for everyone available, for the official release of the Home itself.
The zoekbedrijf announced yesterday a new design for the Google Home app. That makes it easier to other devices in the house to operate. So you can now directly from the Home app your lights on and off, or the thermostat control. The app can of course also still used to your Chromecast or Home to operate.
