How to set up a google mini ?
Following the instructions.
1. Download google home to your phone apple & android.
2. Launch the app.
3. Train you voice in seconds.
4. Thats it....
To play music via google play or spotify.
Update the settings in the Google Home App and select the Music default.
To control lights or sockets via google mini.
Purchase a compatible plug or similar. These can be purchased from e-bay for about £10 each.
The wireless plug will come with an app, you use the app to connect to the plug via wireless connection using your home wifi to connect and control. Enter you home wifi into the plug app. Once that's done you can then add the device vial the Home app on your phone, and then say "Google Lights off" or this year is was "OK GOOGLE Christmas tree lights ON" and off lol.
Be sure you have a compatible brand.
