Pretty much the same deal as everywhere but direct from Google.

I was quite temped at £50, but at this price it seems silly not!

Free delivery too!

I've finally taken the plunge and got one for my partner, and myself (as an early Xmas present ) Was waiting them to be this price. Picked this over the echo dot as I have Google assistant on my phone already.

Tempted by this as want the coral one and only place to buy it!

Interesting. Anyone know if you can use Play Credit for this? Got about £30 from Opinion Rewards sitting doing nothing.

Doesn't seem to have an option at checkout for play credit....

Just out of interest. Why does everyone want the coral one?

Do a lot of people have a coral theme in their homes ?

Play credit is only for digital purchases like apps, music and rv/films.

Unfortunately you can't use Play Credit for hardware, I've got quite a bit and was hoping to do the same as you.

Here's a link to the Ts&Cs which say that you can only use it for "Apps, Books, Movies, Music, subscriptions": support.google.com/goo…-GB

that's why play credit is pretty much useless

anyway I picked up 2 home mini in store at maplin because they had an additional 5% student discount - and when you buy any product direct from the google store their aftersales service is HORRIBLE. I'd rather deal with maplin

Kind of tempted

Ordered. I see Google kindly give you a free month of services. Unless you already are a subscriber. Add that to the other 6 I haven't been able to use!

Yes, most homes have a coral theme.

Ordered one to see what the fuss is about!

Seems fishy to me.

There was a problem on the review units randomly recording lots during the day without being triggered by the keyword. Last I heard they're permanently disabling the buttons on top of the device to solve this issue. Anyone know if they ever fixed the problem and re-enable the buttons again?

How does it link to your TV?

Watch Blue Planet 2, coral is cool........

Does anyone know what colour comes free with the Pixel 2 XL?

I couldn't take delivery today so have no idea.

How does this compare to Alexa products? Is there Google equivalent of Echo Show and echo spot? Does Google have an equivalent Alexa skills store? Not sure which eco system to buy into? Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

Touch volume controls still works but you cannot play/pause or long press for Google Assistant. It's the biggest problem with the home mini for me

Just a heads up Google are sending these via UKMail using a signed for service and will not deliver to a neighbour or alternate address. As I don't fancy a 105 mile drive to collect from the depot i'll be cancelling the order!

Got mine set up last night and was disappointed
Home mini should be able to make calls using your phone, or call between units, or turn off lights but...
google home "can't do that yet" in her words
I had flashbacks to high school...

What do you mean to call between units?
And i'm sure it said it is compatable with Phillips Hue etc?

didn't work with my tp-link stuff even though it's advertised as working with it. I connected the Kasa home app/account with Google home and my mini says "sorry I can't do that yet"
and calling between 2 or more google home minis. Supposedly you can use it as an intercom, but "not yet"

I believe that feature has just rolled out a day ago. Perhaps, it still hasn't updated on yours yet? Some people from the UK on the Reddit sub have reported it working.

Yes, wish I'd realized this. They've made two attempts to deliver to my home address and I've tried to change delivery to my work address and it can't be done with UK Mail! They are basically un-contactable! Only the sender can do it.

So I've got in touch with Google Support who are finding it extremely difficult to contact UK Mail in order change the address also.

Shame as I wanted the coral colour one.

Yup I spent an hour on live chat to google going round in circles telling me to change this and that. I had to explain that I couldn't because the service Google has selected limits me to change the day and that's it. But yes I was surprised that Google, as the sender, didn't have any means to contact UKMail directly.
I taped yesterdays missed delivery card to my front door with the leave with neighbour or safe place options (which aren't valid on that delivery service) circled many times over and it looks like the driver got the hint as it's been delivered somewhere.

Scan charge the same price and use DPD free delivery for future reference! (although maybe not coral)
