When setting up a new Google Home (1945) speaker, there's a short list of things you should do first, such as: For example, changing the default music service, connecting supported Smart Home devices, and setting up Parental Control.
After that, you should use the latest Google Home setting by assigning your speakers to different rooms. Here's how and why you should.
Why you should allocate Google Home speakers to rooms
We assume that you have some Google Home speakers throughout the house and several smart home devices like a smart light bulb or a smart home Have a switch. Maybe you already know that when you say, "OK, google, turn on the lights", all connected smart lights in the house will be turned on.
However, if you create a room in the Google Home app and then assign a speaker, lights, and other smart home devices to that room, your speaker can intelligently decrypt what you mean when you say something "Turn off the lights on." It will only turn on the lights in the room unless otherwise stated.
When you create a room, you can also say "OK, Google, turn off everything in the bedroom" and all connected devices in the bedroom will be turned off.
By grouping everything into their respective rooms, you can control your Smart Home more precisely without having to name or address all of these devices.
How to Assign Your Google Home Speakers to Specific Rooms
Assigning devices to rooms is really easy.
- Just open the Google Home app on iOS or Android and tap the Devices icon (a picture of a TV with a speaker in front) at the top right corner.
- Tap the action Overflow button (three horizontal dots) in the upper right corner of one of the Google Home speakers in your account and select Settings
- Scroll down and select Home control .  All of your speakers and Chromecast devices are listed under Assistant .
- Tap on one of the speakers to edit it. You can change the name, set a nickname, and change the room in which the speaker is located.
- If the room is not correct, tap Room and select one of the preset rooms from the list or scroll to Select Add New Room .
- Repeat this for all your Google Home speakers.
Once all your speakers have been assigned to a room, it's best to make sure all the smart home devices are safe, all set to the right rooms. In the Home control menu in the app, all your connected smart home devices are listed under their respective brand names.
When the device is assigned to a room, the room name is displayed directly below the device name. If it is not assigned, no room name will be displayed. Touch the device name to edit and then Room to select the room in which the device is located.
Once your devices are assigned to a room, you no longer need to specify which devices you use. Talk about it when you tell Google Home to turn on the light or close the door.
Now that you've assigned rooms to your existing Google Home speakers, it may be time to add another.
