Work & Play Smarter with Google

Sometimes, you just don’t realize what you’ve been missing.

For instance, prior to testing Google Home and Google Wifi over the past few months, I didn’t really think that my home needed any technological upgrades.

Now that I’ve gotten to know these two innovative products from Google, I’m not sure how I would ever go back to life without them. I mean sure, I could do it, but the point here is that I wouldn’t want to!

It’s been a little while since I posted about how much I’m loving my Google Home, so I wanted to give an update.

Honestly, our Google Home has become a part of the family in a big way.

Once we all became accustomed that Google Home can hear us from almost anywhere in the house (it’s really COOL how sensitive this device is), we really started taking advantage of it.
Whether it’s asking that a specific song from Spotify be played, asking a question about the weather or finding out that there are about 20,000 different species of bees in the world — we’ve found endless uses for our Google Home.

That’s really what technology is all about in my book. Google Home fits snugly into the crevices of my family’s life and it’s there when we need it. I can count on it, and I love that.

Of course, I’m also a pretty big fan of the other Google product that I’ve been testing—Google Wifi!
Google Wifi has been a major headache-reducer for me.


After we made a few room additions to our home last year, it became clear that our router just wasn’t able to deliver quality Wi-Fi signal throughout our home. I tried using a signal booster for a while, and it helped to amplify the signal in one area of the house, but we still had many dead zones.
Google Wifi is a total game-changer and we no longer have issues playing Minecraft upstairs, surfing YouTube in the basement or even working on the back porch. It’s pretty incredible and I’d recommend this product for anyone who needs to beef-up their Wi-Fi.


I’m not a fan of buying every single gadget that hits the market. In fact, I try to avoid technology-bloat as often as possible. I know that I can’t be the only one who has regretted buying useless electronics over the years. That stuff piles up, and then what do you even do with all of it?
The thing is, Google Home and Google Wifi aren’t extraneous do-dads. These products are sleek and sophisticated little workhorses, and frankly, I don’t have time for anything less.

Do you own Google Home or Google Wifi? I’d love to hear which features you love the most!
