Don't get the app, don't get the robot. It's advertised as being smart home ready for Google Home but for the past few weeks at least since I got mine the authentication link with Google and iRobot goes to a blank page and never completes. I have called twice to a call center in India, emailed the app team twice and got no response, and I'm about ready to return this thing and get something else. FIX YOUR DAMN APP!!!
App is horrible. Always says it can connect, or that the service is offline, and cant reach the cloud, etc. Didnt seem to have these problems 2 or 3 months ago, so something has changed. Have constantly tried rebooting the robot, uninstalling and re-installing the app, restarting my router, etc. No change. Seems silly to complain that my robot vacuum isn't working while I'm away, but for 800 bucks, surely they can do better.
Hoover is astonishing. App is not. Setting up on Wifi is so hit and miss. When working it's great. Regularly don't get notifications which I used to. Sometimes maps don't load. Should be so much better for a premium product. Edit: connection to Google Assistant does not work either
Bought this because it integrates with Google home. Only problem is I can't link the accounts, just sits on a blank page. Contacted Roomba support and so far they have been unhelpful.
Cannot connect to Google home. Took me am hour to get wifi to work. Thought everything was supposed to be simple. Click link to home. Then after signing in the page never loads. Wasted over 2 hours resetting everything and still can't connect. Half the time it says my roomba isn't on the same network. The roomba itself is awesome app is garbage
Edited from 1 star to 4. The origin of the 1 star was lack of advertised Google Home link capabilities. The software team got a hold of me rapidly and addressed the issue at a respectable pace. Device and app work great. The only thing presently holding it back from 5 stars is lack of the ability to turn off, or at least down, the loud beeps and chirps triumphantly announcing the Roomba is in use.
