How do I update my Google Home?

Find out how to get the latest features for your Google Home.

Nobody likes missing out. Particularly when it comes to the latest tech. Your Google Home will regularly update to the latest software version so you can enjoy all the new features it has to offer. Our handy guide will help you to check your clever voice-assistant is loaded with all that good stuff.

What do I need to do to update?

Your Google Home is smart technology at its most intelligent. So clever in fact that it updates itself. That’s right, once you’ve set up the device, there’s nothing you need to do to get all that newness. Just sit back, relax and let your wise little speaker take care of the rest.

What should I expect during the update?

  • The update normally takes around 10 minutes. If you want to know how long’s left, your Google Home app has the answers.
  • The LED light on the device will also let you know whether it’s still updating or not. It’ll be white and slowly spinning while it’s downloading and installing.
  • Taking a little long to update? Double check it’s still running by having a peek the LED status. If needed, you can reboot the Google Home by unplugging it from the power source, wait a minute and plug it back in. The update will automatically restart once it’s plugged back in.
