How to Set Up Your New Google Nest Speaker
So your abode now has a Nest Audio or Nest Mini speaker. Or maybe someone gifted you a Google Home or Google Home Max from a couple years ago. (The names may be a bit confusing, since Google decided to rebrand its smart home speakers and displays last year, but don’t worry, they all work just about the same.) You’re about to enter the wonderful world of digital personal assistants. All you have to do is set it up.
We can help. Also, we should note that Google’s voice-activated Assistant lives in many products beyond those sold under Google’s Nest brand name. You can find smart speakers from Lenovo, Sony, Bose, JBL, and countless other manufacturers with Google Assistant baked in. If you have one of those devices, setting up the Assistant as described here should still work for you. If you hit a snag, consult the directions written for your specific device.
