Qoo10’s Best of 2017 – Google Home

Posted on
Google Home comes in variety of colours

We’re fast approaching 2018 and we thought it’d be nice to look at what had trended in the past 12 months, in Qoo10.  Many of you have bought many different items, from Anker portable battery chargers to rugged Casio watches, and right down to packs of Mamypoko diapers.

But some items just hit off so well with you Qoo10 customers and at times, remain to be highly sought after again and again.

With that we kickstart the list on a more technical note. Introducing the…

Google Home

If the term ‘smart home’ seems too much for you, why not start off on a relatively easier note by getting a smart speaker in the name of Google Home? Before you know it, you will be on your way to set up your very own high-tech abode.

In Google’s own words, the Google Home is a “is a powerful speaker and voice Assistant. (It can) play your music. Call your friends. Ask it questions. Control your home. It’s your own Google, always ready to help.”

Ok Google, we hear you. Loud and clear.

The whole concept of talking an item may sound totally new to you. But once you get past that  and embrace this technology, you might just find yourself talking to well, yourself really, more often than ever.

Once it’s set up, you can ask questions from as simple as, “How’s the weather?” to “What is the rating of the movie “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”. The Google Home will be able to give you the right answer, right away.

Not too sure if it accepts Singlish though. Imagine asking it, “Today the weather good or not ah?” or “Today MRT got break down?”

Recently, they also introduced a new member into the family – the Google Home Mini. And of course an elder (and bigger) sibling: the Google Home Max.

Google Home Mini comes in 3 colours

There are also plenty of alternatives available with a popular choice amongst Qoo10 members with the Alexa Echo and Echo Dot being the clear next best choice.

Whether you’re on the Google or Amazon camp, it is clearer than ever that we are ready to take that first step into making our humble homes, a smarter one.
