Google Home: Using the ODROID-C2 as a personal assistant

This article describes how to install Google Home on the ODROID-C2. Google Home is a brand of smart speakers developed by Google.

A large number of services, both in-house and third-party, are integrated, allowing users to listen to music, control playback of videos or photos, or receive news updates entirely by voice. Google Home devices also have integrated support for home automation, letting users control smart home appliances with their voice.
