Google Home has arrived in Australia

Technology paired with the NBN is certainly changing the capabilities of our homes pretty fast. Whether you're in the middle of building a new house or planning a reno, now is the time to update and integrate devices into your home. Why? They're only the start of things to come.

Device capabilities are going to increase, and when combined with the NBN, have the potential to change our lives; our homes will become more comfortable and our daily routines will get easier.

With an Optus NBN connection, turning your house into a smart home just got easier. Behold the Google Home device. You can streamline all your smart devices; all you need to do is connect it to the WiFi connection on your $80 Opus nbn™ plan and voila (minimum total cost over 24 months: $1,920).

Let's take a look at some of its features, designed to connect your home.

Voice commands for audio

You'll not only be able to ask Google Home to open Spotify or Google Play Music, using voice commands but you can play your favourite radio stations and even podcasts. ("Hi Google, play the Fitzy and Wippa podcast.")

Built-in Google Assistant

It's Google's version of your own live-in aide at home. You can perform an array of tasks including checking on traffic, putting together a shopping list and a customised daily brief that has an update on news and the weather.

Control your smart home

Want to turn down the lights so you can watch a movie but not want to get up from the couch? Or how about adjusting the temperature and locking the front door when you get in from a long day at work? Consider it done.
