First, you should understand that your Google Home is a wireless device. As such, it does not know how to connect to nearby devices or Wi-Fi networks until you specifically instruct it to. If you have not yet setup the Google Home app, the device will not work at all. To fix this problem, follow the steps outlined below. If you continue to experience this issue, you can contact Google’s support team.
To reset the device, simply tap on the three dots in the upper-right corner. Then, choose Settings > More > Reboot. When the new screen appears, enter your password and tap Connect. Wait a few moments for the device to pair with the network. Once it has connected to the network, the speaker will receive a notification. However, you can’t use the Google Home on a public Wi-Fi network unless it has a password.
Once your Google Home has detected your Wi-Fi network, you can use the app to connect to the new network. To do this, open the Google Home app on your phone or tablet. Select the Wi-Fi tab, choose your device, and enter your password. Once you’ve connected, you’ll be prompted to enter the password. Once this is complete, your Google Home will start communicating with the other devices on the network.
When your Google Home shows up as a WiFi network, this means that it has a WiFi network and is connected to your home’s network. However, you can also use it on a mobile hotspot if you have one. Just be aware that your connection will be much weaker than that of WiFi. If your Google Home is showing up as a WiFi network, your WiFi connection may be out of sync.
