Order Google Home from the Google Store? It’s shipping now


Pre-order Google Home when it was made available on October 4? You should be receiving a shipping notification today if haven’t gotten one already.

Right now, Google is sending shipping notifications to people, including myself, who pre-ordered the at-home digital assistant early on.


Overnight, the Google Store transitioned my order from “Processing” to “Shipped” along with providing a FedEx tracking number. Assuming everything goes smoothly, my Google Home should be on my doorstep on Monday afternoon. Then Talk Android will be serving up an unboxing video, impressions, and guides for Google’s first at-home digital assistant.

If your Google Store order still has a wait, consider cancelling that and heading to your local Walmart. It turns out Walmart stores throughout the United States put Google Home on their shelves before Google itself started shipping devices to early adopters online.

Google Home is priced at $129, and a free 6-month YouTube Red subscription is included for ad-free music streaming.

    I preordered google home on oct 4th minutes after preorder opened. Unless I am missing something I feel cheated. Stores including walmart, target and bestbuy will have google home on shelves tomorrow for anyone to buy nov 4th. I ordered from google store thinking we would atleast get it on the 4th if not a day earlier. But instead google pushed the payment through on tuesday and order still in processing as of thursday the 3rd, which means I will not receive it to middle of next week? Where is the customer appreciation. Mean while retail stores have had them sitting in inventory for over a week.

    I planned on possibly cancelling my order and purchasing it in store since it hasnt even shipped yet. I am not really sure what to do.
