The Google hardware Ecosystem is a disjointed mess. They have no loyalty to the products they produce nor any consistency in manufacturing process or reliability.
Amazon, with the exception of the dire phone, has stuck to a consistent product offering while also innovating.

Voted hot, similar to the amazon offer currently.
Annoyingly these are the only good things in the 3 for 2 offer, everything else seems to be in the storage category, correct me if I'm wrong.

Is the 3 for 2 only on the echo dot? Or there a site wide sale on 3 for 2?

I've not fallen into the speak assistance tech. I am curious of it but doubt I'd need it.

My only experience is Samsung Bixby which is one of the worse speak assists out there.
I was gonna get one but now I use Siri > Airstream Pro > stereo for wireless music.

I own both devices and you're talking absolute nonsense. The Echo is the more versatile device because of Alexa Skills. I don't even use the Google Mini at the moment. I thought it would easily be better for natural voice searches than the Echo Dot but it's not really that much better. The Echo Dot has been around a lot longer and it shows, the experience is way more polished than with the Google Mini device.

There's so much you can do with it. It's one of those things that once you get the hang of it, you almost can't do without it. I get it to switch my lights off and in the case of the hallway/stairs, both lights come on at once with the wall switch as I don't have separate switches for them. With the Echo Dot I can control the lights as a group or independently. I can ask it questions. I can get the weather, news, I can get out of the car and carry on listening to the radio conversation as soon as I walk in the door by saying "Alexa play Radio 5 Live". I can get it to play any music from Spotify/Amazon Music etc. I can ask it to add appointments and reminders to my Calendar. It's like a personal secretary that actually does what you want it to do.

Also the Echo Dot allows you to pair it with a Bluetooth speaker, so if you don't like the inbuilt speaker you can use a BT speaker if you have one.

After reading those links I realise I'm nowhere near utilising the potential of Echo Dot!

You'll also be able to send text messages and make phone calls with it in the UK this year.

With the light switch. Do you need a special switch or bulb for the echo to take control?
Weird sale - it's 3 for 2 on a bunch of household storage items (shoe organisers, plastic boxes etc) and the Amazon Echo Dot?

I said similar....not the same lol
A Great Deal
So you buy 3 dots for £100 plus £3.99 for delivery, this is the same as John Lewis was (sold out now). Cheaper than Amazon at the mo. which is £49,99 each but only £20 off when you buy 3.
Better than Google home, learning all the time, we have the Echo Plus as well, Quality bit of kit.
Heat from me, just bought 3 dots Thanks to the OP for posting

You need smart bulbs, wait until they are on offer, making sure that they are compatible with Alexa. If you have the Echo Plus you do not need a hub because it is built in the Echo Plus.

You just need wifi LED bulbs that are compatible with Alexa. I got two Hive bulbs free and a Hive Hub from British Gas. So I use those.

Ideal for that.....In our house you hear..."Alexa turn landing light on 50%"...."Alexa turn living room lights on 50%" .."Alexa play music to chill out to" and all is good in the world when these three Dots arrive
I have Google Home and I think it's better than Alexa. Half the time Alexa says she can't understand but Google Assistant can. It's also handy that Google Assistant is built in to my phone so it's easy to control smart home appliances anywhere. Alexa has more skills though and you can order from Amazon with it. Both are decent platforms overall.

Ok I will try and make a long story short...
We had the first bulb free with the Echo Plus but it has a large screw fitting and our house is small screw fittings. Then I found out that you can buy adaptors that change large screws to small screws (keep it clean) and others that change large screw fittings to bayonet fittings. These were quite cheap I.I.R.C. about £5.00 for four. For some reason led smart bulbs with a small screw fitting are mega bucks compared to large screw bulbs. So I bought 3 more large screw led bulbs that were on offer from Amazon..3 for £25. This sounds expensive but these cost peanuts to run and will last years and the Echo Plus does not require a hub to work them as it is already built in. Because we have the Plus (with the built in hub) the dots will control the lights, (The ones that I ordered Today ). The next thing will be Alexa controlled sockets when they are on offer. And Yes it is the height of laziness........but we love it
Hope this essay helps

We have both and the Echo dot is very poor in comparison.

I've got both echo and Google and when trying to control hue often alexa will just say ok but not actually do what's requested whereas Google always completes accurately. Also just an ok from alexa to your request everytime is not as good as googles full confirmation such as "sure, changing 5 lights to 100 percent"

Seems the echo plus comes with a free WiFi bulb to get you started.
At around £139.99.

I do find the concept interesting. But just feel I'm not going to fully utilize it unless I went full voice assist. Which I can't see myself doing.
You can get a £20 credit if you open a credit account too, code LXJYY, three dots for £80, bargain! Thanks OP.

It depends on your use.

Google Home Mini is very conversant out of the box - due to its integrated Google engine. Whereas Amazon Echo devices are capable of understanding more simple commands, or even a series of simple commands, but they’re fairly basic. Where the Echo family really shines is its skills catalogue, there are hundreds of 'skills' available for the devices, unlike Google, whose offering is certainly limited. Amazon also lead the way in Smart home integration, natively connecting to most smart devices out there today. Not so with Google. And finally, Google devices do not yet support call and messaging service in the UK - and they have no plans for one Google Mini to connect to another Google Mini on your own network - unlike the Echo devices, which already do that.


To summarise, if you want a Siri like personal assistant, get the Google Mini. If you want to control your smart home devices, download hundreds of skills (education, recipes, games, utilities), develop your own skills, or ... call and message your friends for free - get the Amazon Echo Dot (or any other in the range).

You can either replace the light switch, with LightwaveRF switches (for example), or replace the bulb.

I went for the first option as can control any type of light, rather than the conventional bayonet or screw in. Also, If you have lights with multiple bulbs, option 1 is certainly a cheaper and more enduring solution.

With LightwaveRF, you use standard bulbs, not smart bulbs. Unless you want colour changing bulbs of course, then you would have to go with something like Phillips Hue. If you are looking at the LightwaveRF switches, you would need to buy a LightwaveRF hub and the light switch. Also, they have just released their new improved Generation 2 series, if you do buy, check they are "LightwaveRF Gen 2" first.

Don't be patronising. Alexa's voice recognition is poor compared to Google and it "knows" less, and that is all that matters - I say Hey Google and then issue my command, and 95% of the time it understands and it always responds - Alexa either doesn't respond i.e. says nothing, or does not understand what I have said about 50% of the time - it gets frustrating having to constantly repeat myself - a car is useless if the steering wheel only works half the time!
A device is only as good as its user interface, and google is way ahead.

It's not all that matters though. If you could be bothered to investigate further and I gave you links to assist you that you'll see Alexa is far from poor as the amount of skills it can perform far exceed Google currently. As I said I own both devices and you do and I like both of them but for me the Google Mini is only useful for some more in depth questions and for which I thought it would be amazing but it's not that much better than Alexa.

I don't even use the full capacity of the Echo Dot and I find the skills it has really useful. I absolutely disagree after comparing both devices that Alexa based devices are poor, this just isn't true.
