My wife and I each own Android tablets. Both of them say "Unfortunately Google has stopped working" when trying to do anything on the Google Home app. I've sent in a report, talked to a Google representative in chat, posted on the Google forum and sent 2 emails. I've read all the possible causes and tried every possible fix that the internet has to offer. Google. Please, please get back to me, as I'd love to be able to use this item as it's intended to be used.
We have both a home and an echo, they both have pros and cons. The pros for the Home include ability to recognize who is asking questions and personalize responses to each person. It can hear slightly better than the Echo. Cons it cannot read from your library, but does better playing from your Google music library. Of the two I like Home the best... But it's a close call.
Come on Google get a grip. I have 3 of your devices but none of them can connect to Google Home when I use my Sony Z2 tablet. I've had a ChromeCast since it came out and it was brilliant. However now as Google Home it's a waist of time. Strangely enough I can connect using my phone. Both devices have rhe same software updates and Android version and my tablet is listed as one of the devices best able to connect to Google Home.
90% of the time my Google home, a cast (audio or chrome) device, or audio speaker group will not show up in the home app when I open or when I open an app like apotify that has cast. A day later the missing device shows and others are gone. Currently my Google home is missing from the home app. It was visible for a short time yesterday. These connectivity issues make changing settings impossible and make casting to a specific device impossible at times. Untill the random connectivity issues are resolved audio cast is worthless.
Not easy to connect and major problem is to connecting via third media that's so funny i has to ingage my second mobile as wifi device. Pls let me know if it can be connected directly and easly through same mobile data. So until u resolve it i'm giving u ✡✡✡
Don't waste your time or money! Chromecast never and I mean NEVER stays stable, assuming you get it to connect in the first place. I have an apple TV, 2 roku players and 4 smart TVs, and yep you guessed it.... One Chromecast, because it's a terrible product. Constant crashing, constant disconnections, poor quality video streaming, you name it. I have ZERO PROBLEMS on all of my other devices. Google dropped the ball hard on this product.
We're very excited to announce that the Google Cast app is now the Google Home app. We have new features* and improvements to make the Google Home app even better!
