Google Home Is A Bright Light For Seniors During COVID-19 Lockdown
Older family members may be finding isolation or quarantining difficult, especially since they are usually not very handy with tech and communication. Google Home or Google Nest Mini could provide a respite. Since it is designed to respond to natural voice commands, it could be helpful for those with mobility issues, vision loss, or reduced dexterity. For some of the older members of the family who are not used to using a smartphone or a computer, Google Home could take them into a new world.
Grandma can ask Google, “What’s in the news?” to get a briefing from her preferred news outlets or ask how later a local store is open.
With Google Home, you can make voice calls and chat with your friends and family. If your device has a screen, you can even enjoy video calls. Seniors can ask Google Assistant to make calls to friends or family in an emergency. However, do note that it cannot call 911. Users will also be able to give simple commands and achieve simple tasks hands-free, such as change the temperature and switch on/off the lights. Google Home can also keep you entertained by playing games, putting on music or audiobooks, and tell you some jokes. All in all, this would be an excellent gift for your parents and grandparents.
