Google Home available in the UK

Google Home makes its way to the UK on April 6th

If you, like myself, were keen to get a hands-on experience with the latest Google device and you are in the UK, I have some good news for you.  Google Home will be available in the UK in a week! The device will be released on 6th April at £129.

Wait, what? Google Home in the UK?

In case you lived in a cave for the last few months, and you wonder what the heck I’m talking about:

Google Home is a hands-free smart speaker powered by the Google Assistant that does just that. Whether you want to get answers from Google, turn up the music, sort out some everyday tasks or control compatible smart devices in your home, all you have to do is say “Ok Google.”

This is a direct competition to the Amazon Echo devices. The hands-free speaker hosts the Google Assistant which will help you throughout the day, entertaining your guests, or telling you the obvious facts like the weather outside. The coolest feature of the Google Assistant which places it ahead of other alike assistants is the ability to respond to the context of the conversation. You don’t have to ask the full question each time, you can simply do a follow-up.

Where to get the Google Home in the UK?

There are no pre-orders just yet, so please be aware of that. You can join the notification list on the Google Store. Looking back at the Google Home launch in the USA, I suspect it will be hard to get a device early on. The device will be available through these resellers:

I will be keen to get my hands on the Google Home as soon as possible. I will see how far I can push my budget in April. I will let you know when pre-orders start.
