Orders of the Google Home are expected to ship out in early November, and if you didn’t order one from the Google Store, we here at DL would like to get one into your home once they are available. That’s right, we’re giving away a Google Home, only because we love you.
With Google Home, Assistant is just a brief “Ok, Google” away, capable of sharing the weather, sports scores, booking a movie date, or any number of different things.
