Google Home’s Super Bowl ad sets off viewers' devices
Okay, Google — distinguish between real life and commercials.
Apparently, Google’s touching Super Bowl ad for its Home product worked a little too well for some viewers who already own the device. Within minutes of the clip airing on Sunday, owners on Twitter discussed how the commercial set off their home devices.
People’s devices began trying to answer the ad as if it were a real person in the home speaking to them, and madcap hilarity ensued.
And while at least Amazon customer didn’t share the experience …
This kind of thing never happened with Skynet.
