When you’re in the kitchen cooking do you like to have some great music playing? What I like to call, “music to jam or make jam by”? 🙂 For me cooking and cleaning while listening to music go hand in hand! I love to put on my favorite Gospel and old school R & B music while I’m working and if you do too I’ve got some great news for you!
One of the biggest problems with kitchen work and music is having to use your hands to change the song, advance the playlist, change artists, turn it down when the phone rings and back up when you’re finished with the call! It always seems you need to touch your music source when you have something all over your hands – never when they’re clean and dry! Well, Google Home solves those problems and so many more!
Google Home is a voice activated speaker for your home that operates on “smart” technology! No hands required to play a song, change a song or skip a song!
All you have to do is say, “Hey Google” and then tell it what you want to hear! Like “Hey Google play I Want You Back by The Jackson Five” or “Hey Google, play Distant Lovers by Marvin Gaye”. Hey Google, play “I’II Call Your Name by Switch”! You’ll hear “Ok, playing I’ll Call Your Name by Switch on YouTube- etc. Hands free music selection! YES!!!

Google Home is especially when you’re cooking, baking and doing your thing in the kitchen because you’ve always got something in or on your hands! What a pleasure to be able to play my music with a shout out and without having to touch anything!
I can even tell Google Home to turn the volume up or down, turn the music off, pause or resume!!! As a cook I think Google Home is the best thing since sliced bread!
This little dynamo is a game changer! I’m a big fan of old school R & B and I got to listen to whatever song came to my mind! It was as simple as saying, “Hey Google, play…” And remember, this works with any type of music that you want to hear, any song, any genre, any artist!
If it’s on the internet, Google Home finds it immediately and plays it for you! It plays music from various sources like Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, YouTube, iHeart Radio and more!
Google Home even corrected my request a couple of times and played the right song even though I requested it wrong! Once or twice I said the wrong name of the song or paired the song with the wrong artist. Google Home corrected my request and played the song I wanted to hear! So Cool!

Google Home comes in a variety of one of 3 base colors, with an option to buy one of 6 additional colors in two finishes – fabric or metal, which you choose to match or coordinate with your home or room interior design.
Google Home is $129 and if you purchase through my affiliate link, I will get an affiliate commission. This means you won’t pay one penny more and I will get a “thanks” for sharing my story about this wonderful product and how I use it! By the way, you might see Google Home at a cheaper price, just make sure it’s new and not “refurbished”. Refurbished usually means someone bought it, returned it for one reason or another and it was checked and repackaged for sale at a cheaper price because it’s technically used. If you don’t mind, go for it but it you want a new one, make sure it says new!
With Google Home you can ask it questions about the weather, traffic, sports scores, have it interact with your home system and turn on and off your TV and other appliances and lighting. It can play your exercise video or turn down the thermostat. Also, coming soon – hands free calling! Can’t wait!
Before I forget, I got a chance to share time with family visiting from out of town this past weekend. My first cousin Dee and her husband Melvin and my cousins Ronni and Darlene came for a four day weekend and it was so much fun! I cooked up a ton of food and we ate, sang, talked and had a great time together! I took Google Home with me to the hotel and set it up in Dee’s & Melvin’s room. Google Home was right in the middle of it all, actually helping to make the magic happen!
After the weekend was over, I took GH back home on the last night. I plugged it in and as a test to see if it would turn itself off, I said “Hey Google, Goodnight”! Well – it didn’t turn itself off, but it did say, “Goodnight, sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite, but if they do, I’ll help you find an exterminator”!
What!!!??? Now that’s what I call smart technology! Priceless!
