A Google Home can be a helpful personal assistant, and is a convenient way to connect all of the smart devices in your home.

Once your devices are connected to your Google Home, you can control them all from your phone via the Google Home app, or through a few simple voice commands. 

In order for your Google Home system to do this, it has to be hooked up to a working Wi-Fi network. If for any reason you need to change your Wi-Fi network, you can do so in the Google Home app.

Be aware, though, that once you change your Google Home’s network, every Google device connected to the Home will have their network change too.
