However, at the same time, your friends might also want to join the party and play songs from their playlists. Given that sharing your primary Wi-Fi password isn't such a bright idea, what can be done in such a situation?
Worry not! This is where the Guest mode on Google Home Mini comes to your rescue. The best thing about this feature is that it lets users cast songs directly to the device without connecting to Wi-Fi.
Google Home Guest mode works on both iOS and Android and is easy to set up.
This feature works on both iOS and Android and is easy to set up. The only prerequisite is that either Airplay (in case of iOS devices) or Bluetooth (for Android) need to be activated.
So, without further ado, let's see how you can enable the Guest mode on Google Home devices.
If the auto-pair doesn't seem to work, you'll have to go the manual way. You'll be prompted to enter the four-digit PIN, which was generated earlier. Once the connection is established, all you have to do is wait for the party to start.
Google Home's Guest mode lets you cast your content as long as the devices are in the same room. Plus, the ability to switch apps and the Home's potential to respond to a slew of commands makes it even better.
Another cool trick, which the Google Home devices have up their sleeves, is that you can link your Netflix account to your Home devices. While you are at it, it lets you play and control the playback directly through voice commands.
Just head over to More Settings in the Google Home app, scroll down to the Videos and Photos section, tap on the Link option and enter your Netflix ID.
Now, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy your shows without raising a finger. Awesome, right?
