My life has been crazy busy these days – in a good way. I’ve been on my grind non-stop covering Fashion Week and new product launches, writing stories, speaking at events and lending my discerning eye (and bubbly personality) to TV trend segments. Staying on task while juggling a full plate isn’t always easy, but I try to work efficiently and have as much fun as possible along the way.
Two products that have been a big help on that front lately are my Google Home smart assistant and Google Wifi system. They’re the digital solutions I’ve been using to keep me and my home connected – to the Internet and to my life. I’ve had them for around two months now and find they’ve totally changed how I navigate my day-to-day.
Here are five things I’m loving about Google Home and Google Wifi so far.
It’s My Personal DJ
Being able to tell Google Home to play my Spotify music is one of my favorite features. I find myself listening to music more, which has been a great mood elevator for me. Saying, “Ok, Google, play my song list” has become one of the first things I do whenever I walk through my door.
It’s A Forecast Friend
I’m also totally digging that I can ask Google Home the weather forecast while I pick out my outfits for the day. I live in a walkup apartment, so it’s a little inconvenient to step out just to check the temperature. Sure I could open a weather app on my phone, but it is just easier to ask Google.
It Makes Me A Multi-Tasking Maven
I get my best ideas at the most random moments – like when I’m waiting for a conference call to start or making dinner. Instead of stopping what I’m doing, I just tell Google to add my bright ideas to my “shopping list” and I circle back to it later. This is a digital hack that I’ve been using since it is the only “make a list” feature Google Home currently offers.
It Simplifies My Commute
Obviously, knowing how long my commute will take door-to-door helps me arrives where I need to be on time. But it also helps me estimate how many more tasks I can sneak in before heading out or while walking to the train. The phrase, “Ok Google, how’s my commute” has been a true game-changer in helping me check more tasks off in the morning.
Keeps Me Connected
Google Wifi has been the little power engine in the background keeping my data uploading and downloading effortlessly. I honestly haven’t had any challenges with my Wi-Fi network since I setup my Google Wifi – which I love. Its lack of technical interruptions keeps me working smoothly, which is the best anyone can ask for from a Wi-Fi network.
Do you have a Google Home or Google Wifi? Let me know how it’s working out for you.
