Google Home Lands In Canada…. And It Speaks Canadian French

Google Home is available from Canadian retailers as of today. The key thing to note is that Google Home now speaks Canadian French. But other than that, it’s the same Google Home device that Canadians have been wanting for some time as it includes the following key features:

  • Google Assistant – Get real-time answers including the latest on weather, traffic, finance, sports, and local businesses. With your permission, Google Home will learn about you and retrieve your calendar information, set alarms and timers, and even tell you about the traffic on your way to work.
  • Music – A simple voice request triggers Google Home to play music, podcasts or radio from services like Google Play Music, Spotify and more.
  • Smart Home Control – Connecting seamlessly with smart devices like Nest and Philips Hue, you can use your voice to set the perfect temperature or turn down the lights.

Telus reached out to me to say that they will have Google Home available for $179.99 at Telus stores or online at But you can also pick it up at the Google Store, Bell, Best Buy, Fido, Indigo, London Drugs, Rogers, Staples, The Source, and Walmart among other retailers.
