    I won a Google home device. I was wondering if it requires a monthly fee for very basic
    setup and usage. If some does not have a cell phone to set it up by can it be set up with
    an internet connected computer?

    Thank you,

    Oh uhm. For very basic setup and usage, all you've got to do is download the google home app onto your smartphone (for free). That's what I did for my Lenovo Smart Display which runs on Google Assistant (same as Google home). However, it's probably better to run it on a smartphone (more on-the-go control, syncing of data, convenience) I'm not too sure about the internet connected computer.

    There is no monthly fee. You can use the free version of Spotify, Tunein etc for music. All you really need is a google account, which is also free. You use Google Home on your smart phone to setup your Google Home.
