Are you looking for a way to set up Google Home with your mobile device but unsure if something designed for Android will work with your Apple iPhone? Although the process can be complicated but it isn't, it is possible to pair Google Home with your iPhone.

How to use your Google Home with Chromecast

Once this is set up, you will be able to use your iPhone with all your Google smart products. You will be able to control your outdoor lights from the comfort of your sofa, you can connect it to your Google Chromecast for easy viewing of movies, all done from your iPhone. So let's get started.


I know it sounds weird, but Google Home actually works with the iPhone too. First you need to download the Google Home app on your device. This of course assumes you've already purchased a Google Home to do this.

You must have Google Home already set up and running in your home before we care about the app. If you just bought it and received it, take it out of the box and plug it into a consistent power source. This way the Google Home pairing process with your iPhone will go smoothly.

  3. Once located, tap the button Get and use your account passcode or confirm your identity with Touch / Face ID. The choice will depend on the option set and available.

With Google Home connected to a power source and the app installed on your iPhone, the next step is to pair them with each other. This requires that both devices are turned on and that a WiFi connection is available.

To start the pairing process:

  1. Launch the Google Home app on your iPhone and tap on Start, located in the lower right corner of the screen.
  2. Select the Gmail account you will connect to Google Home, then tap OK. This will set your iPhone in motion to search for nearby Google Home devices.

  3. Toccata NEXT at the bottom right of the screen to start setting up Google Home.
  4. The new screen will prompt you to select the WiFi network that Google Home will use. Find and choose the desired WiFi network, then tap NEXT in the lower right corner of the screen.
  5. This screen will allow you to enter the passcode or passphrase for your WiFi network. Once entered, click Connect.
    • Google Home is now connected to your WiFi network. All that remains is to set up your Google Assistant.
  6. Google will ask you to confirm permissions to use device information, voice activity, and audio activity. To proceed, tap Yes.
    • There is no need to tap Yes if the choice makes you uncomfortable. However, to get the most out of your Google Home experience, we recommend that you comply with these requirements.
  7. Here's the fun part. Teach Google Assistant to recognize your voice for commands. On the screen you will find some tips to read aloud. Read each one clearly and loud enough to be understood and processed by the Google Assistant.
  8. When the voice match is over, tap Continue on the right side of the screen to go on with the rest of the process.
  9. You will now be able to choose your Google Assistant voice. There are a few to choose from depending on your language preferences.
