Google Home is about to arrive in Spain. Last week we saw that how the Google Assistant activated the Spanish language, both in its variants of Spain and those of Mexico and the United States. And in fact it came to leak into a sales channel, it shows that we will soon be able to buy them.
However, as is often the case with Google services, the arrival of functions is done in a staggered manner. When we were looking at the Google Home commands in Spanish the news was not activated yet. But to our surprise and delight, it only took a few days for them to be.
The news of Google Home is a section where we can ask the assistant to tell us a summary of the news of the day. Until now, when we asked him, he told us that the function was not available, but now he is going to the sources and begins to report the news.
How to set up Google Home news
To configure it we will only have to go to Settings> News> Add news sources. Also from this menu we can change the order and priority with which the news will be read.
This new section is accompanied by the activation of news sources from Spain or Mexico. At the moment the media collection is quite limited. Depending on the country, one or the other will appear, although you can configure a mixed selection to read news in both English and our language.
Sources and media available in Spanish
In Spain the initial means are:
- News from El País
- EsRadio newsletters
- The COPE
- Ser string
Meanwhile, in Mexico we have:
- All in one
- The country
- ABC News
- The universal
We hope that as the weeks go by and the official arrival, the collection of media and sources available will increase considerably and catch up with USA, where the supply is much higher.
