Google Home is one of the most popular tech devices of the past year and the device continues to show strong sales in 2018 too. This Google Assistant powered device has so many features that it is hard to keep track! One lesser-known feature of Google Home is that of ‘white noise’, which allows the users to sleep better.

There are a number of people who prefer sleeping with a slight noise around them which helps them relax better. Google Home can play a number of relaxing sounds. You can ask your Google Home to ‘Help Me Relax’ or ‘Play White Noise’ and it will begin playing these relaxing sounds.

Google can play a number of relaxing sounds for you. The list is as follows:

  • Relaxing sounds
  • Nature sounds
  • Water sounds
  • Running water sounds
  • Outdoor sounds
  • Babbling brook sounds
  • Oscillating fan sounds
  • Fireplace sounds
  • Forest sounds
  • Country sounds
  • Ocean sounds
  • Rain sounds
  • River sounds
  • Thunderstorm sounds
  • White noise

Interestingly, this feature works on Google Home Mini, Max as well as the regular Google Home. Moreover, it also works on smartphones that run Google Assistant though it is best enjoyed in a proper speaker that Google Home has to offer. Even playing this on a Google Home Mini sounds good and allows users to sleep better.

This feature is particularly useful for those users who do not like to sleep in absolute silence, or for those users who have tinnitus as white noise helps them sleep better. This is a really cool feature from Google. This music can play only for one hour and needs to be re-activated after that.

Google Home’s primary competitor, Amazon Echo’s Alexa can do this with the help of third-party plugins. Moreover, it can also pull white noise tracks from Spotify but the Google Home experience is way more seamless and offers a number of different options! Try this feature tonight and sleep better with Google Home.
