Google Home now has some fun Coachella-related features that users who will be attending the festival may want to check out for themselves before they go. Whether it be to find new artists to listen to or just to test your knowledge of the Coachella festival in general. Yes, testing your knowledge of the festival is one of the new features you can access from your Google Home smart speaker. If you fancy yourself an expert on all things Coachella then Google Home will let you prove it with the Coachella trivia game, you simply need to ask Google to talk to Coachella first, and then you can move on to the trivia from there.
From the initial command to get things up and running, you can ask Google to help you discover new artists that will be performing during the festival and you'll even be provided with playlists that contain songs from some of those artists, this way you can learn some of the acts that you may not have heard of before and you'll be prepared by having heard some of their songs before the festival kicks off.
In addition to testing your Coachella trivia skills and helping you discover new artists, Google Home can also help you listen to backstage interviews with some of the acts, answer questions about the festival if need some information, like what you can bring into the festival and what you can't or what time a particular artist is due to go on stage, and which stage they'll be on. What's more is you can even use Google Home to create a Coachella schedule, so if you prefer to be extremely well-prepared before you get there you can have Google lay everything out for you as you keep to a set time frame, show by show, and day by day. While all of these will be available via Google Home, Google Home Mini, and Google Home Max, you can also access any of these features straight from Google Assistant on your smartphone too, so if you want to utilize them while you're actually at Coachella, you can.
