Hello brenda. This vacuum is not recommended for use on black or dark colored floors as the mapping and cleaning performance will be hindered. ^Lo

It currently isn't working with Google, however, the third party apps can't do anything except turn it on or off. There are apparently a couple of these units that can understand commands but I think that's a much more expensive unit than this one.

USA is 110 v AC. Mine came with standard USA plug 110v I'm sure they have the correct charger for other countries or an adaptor may work.

Super quiet
I bought the product to replace my Bob sweep. I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised.The Powerbot is extremely quiet. It does have two vacuum speeds, normal and turbo.The bot can lift itself to climb thresholds and climb down from cat stand bases etc.The vacuum has a clear plastic dust bin making it easy to see and a filter that can be washed over and over.The brush design makes removing hair easier than most other products.The brush and housing are easy to remove by pushing back two lock/unlock  buttons.The square face allows the bot to reach into corners easily. It stays on track and doesn't slam into furniture or walls. Like other bot vacuums having one pivot wheel, this design has two small pivot wheels. Commonly these wheels are the bulk of the problems with the vacuums bumping into furniture and walls and not following its track. I've only had this product for 1-week therfore I don't know if this will be a potential problem at all. Time will tell.

I ordered my Samsung Powerbot R7040 after Christmas 2017 and it arrived on January 4, 2018 so I have had it three weeks today. I have had surgery on my hand and I’m unable to vacuum but about one time a week. I have one pet, a shorthaired cat that weighs about 15 pounds. I knew I was having a problem with the cat hair so that is when I started researching robotic vacuum cleaners. I decided on the Samsung powerbot R7040 because it picked up pet hair, had room mapping, was easier to clean after it vacuums, had a washable reusable filter and with great luck it was on sale at Home Depot. I programmed it without using Wi-Fi as you don’t really have to use it. I programmed it to vacuum the same time every day and the bin is always full when it is through vacuuming. It starts by itself and when it is finished it always returns to its dock by itself. It takes about 37 minutes to vacuum my 800 square-foot apartment. My floors are carpet and linoleum and they are now so much cleaner. You don’t see cat hair everywhere. This is the best purchase I have made in years. Thank you Samsung and thank you Home Depot.

I think this unit is made for a wide open house, but it goes around our chairs trying to cover ever inch of our house. It gets to far away from the base recharger and runs out of power before it gets back. With a little help, it will find the home base.

Bought this in store for same price recently, after having a Roomba knockoff die on me (after 3 weeks) from a large online merchant. It was impressive but not what I had expected after 15 years of development and the self-driving cars and assisted driving cars. I will say that this model is closer to what I was expecting ( I used to be on the bleeding edge of tech, and was an early adopter now a days, I learned to wait for a few generations.) Pros: It is impressive that the R7040 can maneuver in an out of the four legs of a stool (going in at a 45 degree angle) and doesn't bump a leg. THe Edge cleaning feature is incredible as well, so is the ability to raise itself up when it gets stuck or transitions between carpet and flat flooring surface . Best return to home and docking for charging of any Robotic Vac, I've tested, at this price point, and disappointment with robotic vac's I explored after the first was returned after dying. Many of the other Vacs wandered aimless or died while looking for base, again I think that this is something that should have an RF beacon as well as the IR docking beacon. Suction power is great and has a Cyclonic style filter (but carpet fibers still build up and block/lower suction power, probably due to the light weight off synthetic carpet fibers. Debris bin is smaller than competitors, but less of an issue when used on a regular basis. CONS: IR remote that is worthless unless it is line of sight, why not RF remote? Battery life leaves a lot to be desired, while it supposed to return home to charge and resume cleaning, this is only available when you schedule through the app. Samsung Support This App requires WIFI connection for full functionality and use of all the high end features While the last Samsung Connect app update, it worked once before the prior update and the latest, the popup stated "Could'nt add device - This device isn't supported in the current version of Samsung Connect. It will be added in a later version." It worked once when It was first setup. (I have a current Flagship Phone and Tablet from Samsung S8+ and the Tab S3 as well as a great Wifi modem and router that I have both 2.4/5Ghz SSID access points in my house and all the other connected device work fine, while only a few support 5Ghz). Soo now, this Vac has had most of its functionally disabled by an app update, WHY update an app when it make a Samsung product(s) disabled this is not an EOL product if it is return it or don't buy it if Samsung not going to support it? I am a little concerned with not knowing what/how the images from the Camera are being used/stored. Kinda of the same privacy concerns I have with Alexa/Google Home/ Nest / Ring / and in home security cameras. Are the local, are they encrypted, could a thief/hacker see what electronics/valuables I have in my home and target me? I understand that the Camera is how the Samsung has superior maneuverability and obstacle avoidance, the app used to support the path the robot cleaned, I read that you could view what the robot saw, but I have not found or been able to access that feature. Disappointing.

Had high hopes for this robot vac but it was a BIG let down. Setting up the app with your house wifi is not easy, after 20mins I had it setup and the app will not connect to it for full control of the unit just shows me the status. Went over the book and removed and reconnect 5x. I am great at I.T as I do programing but the app has real issues and contacted Samsung for support but after 2hrs and three call they said the app has issues and they will fix it one day but did not know when. As for cleaning, I set it on the vac for auto clean but still has issues as it would get stuck table legs and suck up the edge of my runs causing it to stop.The edge cleaning is not so great. what I did like; the power and its low profile gets under the bed with no issues. I also tested out Hoover rogue 970 and Shark Ion. The winner was Hoover as its app was great and the vac seemed smarter then the other two.
