I tried to buy a few minutes after this deal being posted but both were unavailable after adding to basket, also if George runs out of stock then very likely orders from grocery department will be cancelled anyway.

Aah ok cheers for putting me straight!!
Can anyone get one to add to cart and stay there through to checkout? It lets me add but then says unavailable.
Same as the other one this morning, no stock (unsurprisingly)
Great tech, but hideous wakeword that ultimately sent me to Alexa instead.

Let us change it Google or mine stays in the cupboard.

What a ridiculous statement.


Are you going to back that up at all or just leave it at that? There are plenty of people with the same experience, and I know because I've found them not just IRL but also on HUKD and also the Google forums where we've been trying to get Google to acknowledge this.

"Hey Google" or "Okay Google" is an awful phrase to repeatedly say, whereas "Alexa" is a simple, single phrase which is much friendlier and rolls off the tongue (and more importantly, out of the throat).

Thanks again for your input and have a great day.

I haven't spoken to a single person that has any problem with it at all, just to counter that.

It's a gadget, not a pet. 'Ok Google' is absolutely fine for me and many friends that I know use Google assistant, home, mini and soon to be hub.

Changing its name is not an option, which is exactly why Amazon makes you use 'Alexa' because it doesn't sound like the majority of English words, exactly the same as Google.

Okay, so firstly, what you're talking about is solely anecdotal evidence. Are you telling me I'm wrong? I'm lying? That the other people I've spoken to don't really have a problem? Are you saying that if you and your "many friends" don't experience something then that something doesn't exist?

And since you don't actually seem to be that well informed, Amazon doesn't make you use Alexa and allows you to choose from several different options including "Amazon", "Echo" and "Computer" - all single word phrases, all much easier than Google's options.

And finally, since you really don't seem to be that well informed, Google themselves introduced code which suggests allowing changes exactly of the kind I mentioned:

chromeunboxed.com/new…on/

Are you going to tell Google they're wrong, too?

Advice of the day from a stranger: Try and be more open minded before being so quickly open mouthed, next time.

I had a feeling this would be a professional keyboard warrior....

Before you carry on voice searching arguments and articles, let's clarify, and then you can turn your smoke alarms off: "Let us change it Google or mine stays in the cupboard." IS a ridiculous statement, you are solely not using a product you've purchased because you don't like it's trigger name.

That article is from 10 months ago (and isn't even a Google article), and so far they've added 'Hey Google' instead. Just because someone unpacked a single test APK with some scripts appearing to show other options, doesn't mean it will be put into a final release, and guess what? It hasn't.

Fair enough, I don't own an Alexa as I heard they're not as good / don't tie into the Google ecosystem.

likewise I don't own a google mini as I pulled the trigger when the Echo first came out and kind of stuck with that. Heat for the price of this though. No idea which is technically better but mine does what I want it to.

I'm literally solely not using it because of its hotword/wakeword. My two Google Minis and one Google Home are all in the cupboard until Google allow the changing of those words.

No, entering that code doesn't mean they're going to implement it but it also doesn't mean they won't, and that code strongly suggests the possibility of it. They don't just throw anything in for fun if they don't have at least some intention of using it.

Unfortunately, you basically just seem in complete denial of the fact that you're close-minded and only want to believe what you already believe because you're incapable of changing or opening your mind to anything else. Fortunately, I don't have to prove myself to an internet random like that, so you carry on being limited while the rest of us laugh and/or feel a bit sorry for you.

Completely agree. Had google home for a while now and it’s just not as smooth or easy. It never seems to respond that well on reliably either compared to the Echo which I just received from BT for signing up to their broadband.

Much prefer the phrase and the responsiveness of the Echo.

Hmmmm...I have had Echos for a while now and whilst I am generally happy with them....particularly for music and home automation, was thinking of getting a Google Mini too as I would expect Google to be a bit better for general knowledge type requests. Have you not found that with Google Home? :/
On another note, I've also just resigned my contract with BT for broadband with the free Echo expected. Was your's from BT the gen2 echo dot or latest gen3 version?

As an aside...just popped into local Asda and although they have Minis in stock...labelled and scans at £50. 😔 Customer service rep I checked with thought maybe live tomorrow but wasn't sure. :/

It was the newest one I believe. Only had it a couple of weeks but it just seems much quicker. We’ve currently moved out (due to house refurb) and I haven’t had much chance to get lightbulbs and heating setup yet. I also haven’t asked it many random questions like I’d done with google.

Maybe worth trying one to see how you get on

You're not fully understanding how linguistics works if you think the only factor is the number of syllables.

Say both phrases separately. Now notice the difference in how much movement takes place in the mouth, and how much in the throat, between the two.

Over time, repeatedly, this matters.

Actually one of the big advantages of Google over Alexa is that you don't repeatedly have to keep saying Google where as Alexa needs to referenced every time its used.

BTW, I have both and Alexa is currently in the cupboard as Google is so far ahead for the stuff I use it for.

Follow up mode has recently been enabled for Alexa in the UK...which means you can now ask Alexa consecutive commands after saying the initial wake word. 🏻 (I have yet to try it much tho).
