  1. Make sure to connect your mobile device/tablet to the same Wi-Fi network that you intend to use to set up your Google Home device.
  2.  Open the Google Home app by tapping the app icon on your iOS device.
  3. Tap Get Started.
  4. Confirm Google Account: Choose which Google Account you want to link to Google Home. You can also add a different account if you don’t see  the account you want to use listed. Tap Ok. 
  5. Bluetooth: If you already have Bluetooth turned on, you won’t see this screen. You can skip to the next step. 
    1. Highly recommended: If you don’t have Bluetooth turned on, the Google Home app will ask you to turn on Bluetooth to help improve the setup process. You can swipe up from the bottom of your Home screen and turn on Bluetooth.
    2. If you don't want to turn on Bluetooth for setup,
      1. Tap No thanks.
      2. Tap your iPhone’s Home button and then Go to your iOS Settings and then Wi-Fi.
      3. Connect to the Wi-Fi network that matches your Google Home device. Look for something like GoogleHomeXXXX.k, GoogleHomeXXXX.o, or GoogleHomeXXXX.p.
      4. Navigate back to the Google Home app. Your device should now be detected. Tap Next. Then skip to step 9.
  6. Google Home Support | Google Home Setup | Google Home Help

Second, Google Home needs to Knoxville Awnings for home shield work be on the same wifi network as your iOS device. If you don't want to use the same network as your home internet router and modem (which could slow down your connection), then you may want to consider using Bluetooth instead. Bluetooth is a less reliable form of communication than wifi, so it's not always ideal for non-serious uses like listening to music or checking news headlines—but it works fine for basic tasks like controlling lights and turning on music speakers via Bluetooth connection between two devices.
