When you first setup your Google Home, you may forgot to choose weather unit, which is an important feature installed on the smart speaker. Weather is perhaps more volatile than stock market, and therefore, users who travel, have to keep an eye on weather. But if your Google Home doesn’t give you weather update in a unit of your choice, you have to change a weather unit on Google Home and Google Home Mini.

Google Assistant provides weather updates in two units: Fahrenheit and Celsius. If in case, you are not happy with either, you can change weather unit from Fahrenheit to Celsius or Celsius to Fahrenheit. But before that, you have to select a weather unit using your Google Home app on your smart phone or tablet.
