This story is part of and contains tips for optimizing the holiday season.
If your thanksgiving is something like mine, family reunions look more like something you would see in military history than the Hallmark Channel. Rambunctious arguments, fights over the game on TV, and the divide-and-conquer approach of putting the kids' table in another room sometimes make the holiday seem like a guerrilla war. If that sounds familiar, you'll need your Google Home ($ 79 at Walmart) or for much more than reading recipes and setting timers this weekend  From settling disputes and verifying facts to getting to know the big game and of the kids, all forgotten in the other room, Google Home can help bring order to the otherwise chaotic battlefield to bring many families' Thanksgiving dinner.
This year, you have three ways to gather troops for a victorious Thanksgiving holiday with Google Home. We also have a lot of other tips to survivefrom Essential Thanksgiving Cook Hacks to .
Solving Conflicts and Avoiding War
A Thanksgiving holiday that is big enough probably draws family and friends from a variety of political beliefs to all the world's problems about mashed potatoes and stuffing. But even when everyone stays polite, vacation calls sometimes get into a dead end when two people can not agree on historical facts. At this point, it's time to turn on Google homepage for mediation.
With the power of Google search at its core, Google Home can solve almost any fact-based conflict. Just ask him a question on any topic, from history and politics to sports and culture to other topics. Some examples:
- "Hey, Google, what year did the battle for Normandy take place?"
- "OK, Google, how many votes did Ronald Reagan get in the 1980 election?"
- "Hey, Google, which countries sent humans into space?"
If there is no right or wrong answer, but a decision has to be made, for example, if the children disagree on whether they are just want to look at home 1 or 2, just one person has to select head or tail and say, "OK, Google, throw a coin." If it's good enough to decide which team gets the kick-off, it should be good enough to pick a movie or settle for another turkey day's contest.
When sport is no longer a game
I'm not a big sports fan on any other day of the year, but I grew up in Michigan, where the Detroit Lions play every Thanksgiving even if it's just a touch of nostalgia. You can check the score or get information about just about any game by checking Google Home. And the best part is that you do not have to pull out your phone to do this. So you will not insult anyone by getting pulled into your screen. Some examples:
- "OK, Google, how many points does the Lions game have?"
- "Hey Google, when are the Lions playing today?"
- "OK, Google, who's playing the Lions? Today?"
If that's not enough and you need minute-by-minute reporting, you can also use Google Home to play any game from any radio station across the country (and from many others) is broadcast around the world). You only need to know which channel is broadcasting the games of your favorite team. If you do not already know, you can ask Google Home. So:
- "Hey, Google, which radio station broadcasts Detroit Lions games?"
- Say the name of the sender after Google Assistant responded. For example "Play WJR 760 AM".
Keeping an eye on children
If guests are spread across multiple rooms in a single house, you can check in without getting up. A blessing in getting up means that five people also need to take their chairs off. With multiple Google startup speakers, you can send the required messages.
To start the conversation, go to Google Assistant and then "broadcast", "http://www.cnet.com/" announce "," http://www.cnet.com/ "shout" or use "tell" followed by the message you want to send, for example:
- "Hey, Google, Broadcast, & # 39; dinner is ready!" http://www.cnet.com/ "
- " OK, Google, announce, "Does anyone need more turkey?" Http: / /www.cnet.com/"[19659019weibl"HeyGoogleschreienSie:"Wanttohelpwithharness?"Http://wwwcnetcomcom/" After Google Home has played your message, anyone at the receiving end can reply, but please note that broadcast messages are sent to all Google Home devices in your house, but the answers are sent to the speaker only The message that originated to hear the conversation.
