Google has this information anyway, seeing as you've used these services. Don't see the problem personally, perhaps I have less to hide

Still can't believe these were £50 with the telegraph deal.....now no matter what the sale is on these I'll always feel let down. Luckily I picked up a couple on the telegraph deal.
i think these will drop again to £72

What was the Telegraph deal? Their buildings in London are next to one another. Sounds like a marketing partnership?

You're absolutely right. These things will drop like stones. They'll be giving them away soon. For your compliance slavery of course.

Get one one used once briefly for half this price after Christmas. Then prepare yourself to be as dissapointed as the original owner. However you you be able to resell again on EBay stating used twice briefly.

I guess if it really comes down to it then you could just buy a really cheap smartphone > £35, and you'd have more or less a Google Home Mini that has a aux port and can do other functions. The only function I know of that the Home can do that the Google Assistant on the phone can't do is broadcast messages to other Home devices. I will say though as an owner of a Home Mini, I do really like the product and the sound quality is not bad. Like everything else though, it really depends what kind of environment you have at home. I already had a chromecast and chromecast audio so for me it was an easy choice to pick Google over Amazon + allot of Amazon's services on their alexa, firestick, etc are likely to disappear after the row between the two internet giants. I'll stick with the bigger company
Just bought myself the Amazon Show so my Google Home is not needed anymore. Anyone know the best place to sell it? Looking for about 50 BNIB.
Guys is the sound quality alone worth the price over the £34 priced Google home mini or would it be better to get 2 home minis?
Save £2
Absolutely love my Google Home, had it since it’s release in the U.K. and now it’s part of my everyday life.

Depends.... If you already own a Chromecast audio, I would suggest just getting two home mini's. But if you're looking for an all in one and you only really need 1 Home assistant maybe the full size one might be a better idea. I don't actually own a full size one so can't comment on the audio quality but from what I've heard its not bad. Although I have 2 home mini's and for their size the audio quality is very good. Hope that helps
I got a Google Home mini from my company yesterday as a Christmas present. I was quite excited and fired it up. I downloaded the app and went through the setup steps and stopped at the access section. You have to give Google full access to:
> Your whole phone's contact list
> Your entire search records, from all devices which use Google services
> Your location and location history
> Your calendar, apps and device data
> Your voice activity
> Your song choices
> YouTube search history
> YouTube watch history
And you have to agree to Google keeping this data and providing targeted ads based on all of these data.
It won't let you set it up unless you agree to all of these. I did that to get it going, then I went back in a rescinded some of them, at which point it refused to work until I turned them back on again.
Mine will be on eBay from tomorrow, though it's probably too late since Google will have already harvested all my information. I don't know if the Echo is any different in data harvesting but personally I'm not prepared to be spied on to this extent.
Sigh.

Cheers for your comment Elliot, no I don't have the Chromecast audio. I work at Tesco at its £89 but with 10% staff discount and £3 worth of Clubcard vouchers can get for £77.10! The mini is £49 at Tesco and it's out of stock. I'll take the home as it's a great price and works out for me over £50 off compared to £15 for the mini and will have superior sound quality becoming a Bluetooth speaker aswell
These are great for the disabled.

Are they? Which office are you thinking of? Google are all over the place so it's not hard. Kings X, Victoria, St Giles, Dublin. I heard Guinness were doing a partnership with them too, and Centrepoint and Eurostar...

Pretty much the same (Echo), and also relevant for Android users. Out of interest; Do you use ad blockers on your devices? Do you search google/bing signed out/incognito?

The sound quality is not great on these it's the only thing that stops me loving the device. The Echo sounds way better.

I would actually recommend you buy the Home Mini over this and get a Chromecast audio and something like an Anker Soundcore 2 speaker. The price difference will be minimal between that line up and the full size Home and you will have much better sound quality.

A lot of early online reviews actually gave the edge to the Home over the Echo for audio quality but apparently an Echo software upgrade made a big difference.

I bought the Echo and Home at the same time and have them side by side and the Echo blows the Home out of the water for sound quality in my opinion. The bass levels on the Home are the most insane I've ever heard on a speaker. Even turning the bass down as far as it will go via the app doesn't stop it from drowning out the mids and High's. It's possible a software update could save the Home and there are lots of complaints on Reddit and Google forums. Let's hope they listen.

Privacy is important but you may as well stay off the internet and not own a smartphone, tablet or laptop if you don't want any tech company knowing your details.

Google are pretty honest about what they collect these days and as long as it's not being physically examined by actual people and is just being used to improve Google services I don't think it's anything to be too alarmed about.

That was a technical fault though and I believe that has been rectified. Google has nothing to gain by listening to people's random conversations.

Lots of other ways they can get all that data. Do you use chrome? Gmail? Android?
