Good morning and Merry Christmas!

You don't use a computer to setup a Google Home device, you need to use a Smartphone. Do you have an Android phone or an iPhone?

no I just have a flip top phone

Alright, unfortunately, you need to have a smartphone to get it installed and running (any Android or iOS phone). It uses the Google Home app on your phone to program your wifi settings, and your personal settings, and will work then without the phone later... but, you need a phone you can run the Home app on to set it up.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
