Interface 4/5

The Google Home app is an intuitive interface that keeps your Chromecast and Google Home devices in one place, in order to manage, set up and operate them easily.

Features 4/5

The Google Home app provides a wide variety of features for Chromecast, Chromecast Audio and Google Home users. Chromecast device users can browse through popular and trending feeds from their Chromecast apps, and search through content filters by actor, TV show or movie. You can pause, adjust volume, and play anything on your Chromecast devices, as well as view suggestions for new offers, content and apps from the main screen.

Chromecast Audio device users can also sync their Google Home with their speakers, which can allow for music playback in multiple rooms, as well as control the volume, play and pause audio on all of your devices that are Chromecast Audio enabled.

Usability 4/5

The Google Home app is a convenient and user-friendly app that is straightforward to navigate and well laid out for ease of use. Users of all ages can use the app, however, less tech savvy users may find that there is a learning curve in order to find and take advantage of some of the apps features. The guided prompts help to assist users in utilizing the features they need and setting up their devices, and the search function makes it easy to find anything you’re looking for at a glance. 

Compatibility 4/5

The Google Home app is available for Android and iOS devices, so users can access the app from their tablet, smart phone, laptop or PC. However, the app required use with Android 4.0.3. and higher to run, and required a WiFi or data connection to function. This app can also tend to train battery on your devices quicker than some other apps, and uses a significant amount of system performance when in use.


The Google Home app makes it easy to sync your compatible Chromecast and Google Home devices in one place, and control a variety of features remotely on one platform. The app is intuitive and has a clean design that it makes it easy to use and navigate. A downside would be that some of the Google Home app’s features are not available in certain countries.
