Get local help with your Google Assistant

Google Assistant can now locate a handiman near you

The blog post focused heavily on home services, though the move fits more broadly into Google's broader strategy of helping Assistant cater results more locally for users.

The eBay listing says there is only a limited quantity of the triple pack viable, so make sure you snap one up before they all go. Unfortunately, some owners are discovering exactly that and Google is still in the dark as to its cause.

Google Home's functionality has been gradually expanding over 2017, and after Google's smart home speaker gained multi-user support earlier this year, as well as the ability set reminders, it turned into a really well-rounded alternative to Amazon's lineup of Alexa-powered devices. Of course, you could just use your phone, but Google Assistant isn't always around to assist on all phones. Depending on which music you are playing, or your luck, your Google Home Mini might crash and reboot unceremoniously.

War crimes convict Slobodan Praljak died of cyanide poisoning
Two Croatian experts were also present during the autopsy carried out at the Netherlands Forensics Institute in The Hague. It is still unclear how Praljak managed to obtain the poison. "But that was his decision, his decision", the lawyer said.

At this point, it's not entirely clear what causes the crash.

Google is aware of the issue and recommends people experiencing it to submit a feedback report through the Google Home app with the information above.

Earlier this October at Google's Pixel 2 event, the company unveiled two new Google Home devices in the form of the Google Home Mini and the Home Max.
