Build your own DIY Google Home using a Raspberry Pi
If you need a project for the Raspberry Pi you have lying around, you could always turn it into a DIY Google Home. With a minimal amount of hardware and setup, you can create a functioning home assistant linked to your Google account and controlled by voice commands. Follow the steps in the linked article below to install the Google Assistant SDK on your Raspberry Pi and set it up to listen for voice commands.
Developers can build on the project by programming their own custom voice skills and smart home functions using Google Assistant’s voice recognition as input. If the device is still connected to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse, you can set it up to be accessible via SSH and run in a headless configuration using the Pi’s network options.
