With the arrival of smart assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home, the digital world has taken a huge leap towards the future. What was once a tale out of a comic series where Tony Stark would order Jarvis – his personal sentient assistant – to perform certain tasks is now a reality that's well within our grasps.
Google, arguably the world's biggest tech company, introduced the first Google Home device – the Google Home Mini – to the world on October 4, 2017. Fifteen days later, Google released the original Google Home and the bigger variant, Google Home Max, on December 11.
If you have already got your hands on one of these devices, it's best to know the nitty-gritty of Google Home. Among other things, you should always have an idea of your exit route if you are ever bored or unsatisfied with your Google Home device, which would probably be a rare occasion but then why take a chance?
In this article, we will tell you how to remove your Google account from your Google Home device.
The steps to remove or unlink your Google account from a Google Home device is the same for both Android and iOS platforms. Here's how you do it.
Connect your Android or iOS device (phone or iPad) to the same Wi-Fi as your Google Home device.
Open your Google Home app on your mobile device. Tap on the Devices option at the top-right corner of the app's home screen.
Here, you'll find the device card of your Google Home device. Tap on the menu option at the top-right corner of the device card.
Go to Settings > Linked Account(s). Tap on the 'X' mark next to your Google account. You'll see a prompt where Google will ask you if you want to unlink the account. Tap on Unlink to confirm the action.
