Google Home App For PC – Download For Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP & Mac

What is Google Home for PC?

The Google Home app is the control center for all of your Google devices. You can use it to cast to a Google Home hub (with screen), a Chromecast device, or even to control other supported smart devices on your Wi-Fi network.

Unfortunately, the Google Home app is only available for Android or iPhone. Anyone who wants to use this “control center” on their desktop is out of luck. Unless you know how to install a workaround. It also depends on what you need to do.

  • Now you can select any device and select the Settings icon at the upper right to see and edit the device Google Home settings.
  • You can also control any Smart Devices you’ve set up on Google Home so long as the action doesn’t involve casting.

Note: Android Emulators work like a virtual machine, via a VM network that’s isolated from your Wi-Fi network (but can still access the internet). This prevents any multicast or broadcast functionality, which is what Chromecast uses. However, all other internet-based Google Home functionality works inside the Android emulator.
