What swayed you to this as opposed to the Echo?
It's far from perfect but it will win eventually after a bloody battle, Google starting to get their arse in gear now with improvements..
Looks like lowest price ever been £77.50 which I think was cyber Monday. Piss poor no other retailers reduced after Christmas. I told the plunge on this this morning delivery by 2/1 at latest. I thought bit of gimmick until used my friends echo other day sound was great. Checked this out in Curry's this morning and equally impressed. No brainer for me as we all have Gmail accounts /Android phones. Also yes this will catch up Echo quickly plus reviews state Home much more reliable at answering questions with the search engine being Google. Echo uses Wikipedia🤣

When will this get the update which will let you choose Deezer as your music source?

Spotify and Google play music is already an option, but all I keep seeing for deezer is that it's "coming soon". Well it's been coming soon for at least as long as I've owned my home speaker which is going on 4 or 5 months!

Anybody know?
The only problem with the Google store is that they use UKmail as their courier. They still haven't delivered mine despite being despatched on the 19th and they claiming they have tried to deliver twice. Which I know they haven't because I was in both times and no cards have been left.
I like my Google Home. Had it a number of weeks. Use it almost exclusively for listening to music from my unsubscribed Google Music library. I have just created loads of different playlists so I don't have to pay to listen.

My dad has the amazon show and regular echo and it’s good but the functions just seem a bit limited compared to the google home. Plus google are a power house and will rule the market soon.
Shame it looks so ugly next to the echo.

Is Google home supposed to play playlists from your unsubscribed music library because it does not for me I can only use Bluetooth?
Good deal even though I prefer echo
this or the amazon echo?

Yes, at least it does for me. Created the playlists on my laptop while logged into the Google Music website. Some playlists didn't become available on my Google Home device until the next day.

I named each playlist using the band or artist's name. Then on Google Home I just say, "Hey Google, play (artist) playlist."

Obviously, you have to upload your own music to Google Music before you can create the playlist.

You can actually upload up to 50k to the free account works fine for me. There is also a free sub for 4 months.

Yes, UKmail are worse than useless.

My Google order was supposedly delivered at home and signed for by me, when I was at work. I raised Hell, threatened to report them to the police for theft and identity fraud, and then, amazingly, the order was out for delivery again the next day. And the next, and the next.

Home security cameras show nobody every called or left a card. UKmail's tracking system shows them trying to deliver it at a totally different house number in a totally different road half a mile away.

Google's customer support representative was very good and supportive throughout, offering to send it out again or give a full refund.

In the end, Google sent out a new order which did arrive correctly the next day.

Ordered a mini in the black Friday sale. UKMail claimed they'd tried to deliver once and left no card, then every day updated the expected delivery to the following day. After a week they sent it back to Google.
Have had no explanation whatsoever from them or Google. If you can get this from elsewhere if recommend it.

Mine sounds like it's going the same way. Really crap having to wait in for something that never arrives.

Unfortunately I can't go anywhere else as I took up the free Home with the £50 Telegraph deal.

I find it difficult to contact Google. It's difficult to even find their store imo.

They definitely need to change their courier.
I got one from maplin for 89 tom (5 pound voucher to spend later on) and going to return.. as i got frustated by their wake up words "Ok Google" "Hey Google" really felt like barking all the time and its response "I am sorry I can't help". May be I will get Sonos One for at least being an excellent speaker.
May be someone can help me with a good reason why not to return this as I don't want to subscribe for any premium music apps.
I got one of these for Christmas, £89 from Currys. Loving it so far and the sound quality is good, not Sonos One quality but perfectly good. I've found the level of info it can provide is excellent, I especially like the "What's happening today?" command as it then provides me with lots of great info and news first thing in the morning. This can be customised within the app to give info relevant to my interests
I actually have 2 Google home minis.great bit of kit + kids use them for homework ect. Will definitely buying a 3rd at some point
Mine was ordered about 4 hours ago and just been shipped via UK mail....apparently part of DHL that I always have delivery issues with. We will see. It says tomorrow or Thursday. I’m in both days so we will see.

Got one of these for Xmas and yes it does work with Spotify free but I swear you'll be getting a subscription within a few hours, mine was playing fine then was stuck in a constant loop of Spotify reminding me I was using their free service. Got the 3 months for £9.99 whilst I upload my music to Google.
I bought myself, my parents and friend both the Google Home and Home mini. You need to phrase your questions and instructions carefully but generally they are great. Like a couple of posters have said you can use the free version of Google Play Music to upload your own songs and then create playlists that the Home will play. So if you want to play an album, just create a playlist with all the songs in. I'm hoping Google will introduce the functionality to be able specific songs from your own library in the future; though this may negate the need for people to subscribe to the paid service. I guess the competition will dictate the future functionality.

I've got some playlists set up but have also started free four month trials for my parents and friend for Google Play Music. May as well have the benefit of being able to request anything for free for four months.

I've also bought three Philips Hue packs to go with the Homes for voice control. I bought them a week ago when Amazon were selling them with a free Echo, which means I have three Echos. If anyone is more interested in having the Amazon Echo, then I'd be happy to either swap them for Google Homes or sell them on. Drop me a private message if interested.

I got this number for UKmail from Google 0247-6937782.

I called them and they contacted the Preston depot which confirmed on their GPS that the driver was never at my address. He left it at the depot today, so it's now down for delivery tomorrow. He'll probably get lost again, so another wasted day for me.

Well done UKmail for hiring guys who can't find an address. Let's hope his next job isn't a taxi driver.

a sub devision of DHL for one year now and unfortunately should not be expected to be as spot on as DHL. I have never hade a problem with DHL and I have even received packages exactly 24 hours from them receiving the package from the originator in Manchester to me in Spain on standard delivery, not 24 hour. UK Mail used to be Business Post who's strap line was A promise is not a promise until it's delivered, I never got that promise and ended up taking them to court, which I won and cost them a lot more than if they had'ave paid up in the first place for a none delivery.

You can play deezer using the home speaker to cast, or with Bluetooth. But if you say ok Google, play ed sheeran (or whatever), will it play ed sheeran through your deezer?

Mine just says you haven't selected a default music provider, (because I haven't because it won't let me choose Deezer as my default music provider)

When I try to link deezer to my home on the app, all I get is this:
