Same price as Google store with free delivery.
Hot deal. However be aware what you won't find in the reviews for these is that the Amazon echo has much more sensitive mics. I've just returned to echo dot having been very frustrated with the home mini. Works great close 3 orso metres though. Echo has no problem 7 meters away. It also struggles to hear over music or tv that is is controlling

Fitness regime? Who will have a fitness regime when our floor boards are vibrating plates and are sofas electronically stimulate our muscles why would need that?

Our experience has been the opposite. Alexa hears nothing, fails to understand anything half of the time and overall is just useless. My child might as well cry as Alexa cannot understand a word of his neutral accent. Google doesnt do shopping, but hears you every time, gets it right most of the time and can execute 2 commands at once. Dot and Echo now sold on gumtree. Google has taken over our home, except for the Sonos units; where we still struggle with bloody "Alexa". As my wife says; "Flipping witch cannot understand a word of what we say".

Took mine on holiday to a non-european country. connected to hotel WiFi and listened to usual radio stuff and streaming. Used Bluetooth for better sound for films off laptop and music from phone. Normally lives at home as bedroom radio, I think it enjoyed it outing. As its tiny it dropped in the pannier (cycling trip) no trouble and will definitely take it agian.

You’d die of boredom -mainly me talking in a daft voice to the cat!
Overall, better than the echo in my opinion, although you can not connect this item to a Bluetooth speaker for music like you can with the echo. This was the show stopper for me. I think Google want you to buy a Chromecast audio. Frustrating since the mini does have Bluetooth.

Odd. My wife demanded I reinstate Alexa as she couldn't get the Home to hear her. Kids spent ages shouting at it too. Alexa no problems

2 devices with the same issue. And the Sonos with Alexa is about the same. Two of our friends have had Alexa issues as well. When they tried out our Home, they were so impressed that they have made the switch as well.

Dont get me wrong, Alexa has its own strengths. The full size Echo is a slightly better speaker and is strong on the shopping front. But for our family, the slow speech recognition and multiple errors just killed the fun of owning a voice assistant.

but my echo has that problem
There's about 3000 deals for this all at the same price. Why does even get heat. It's the same for Terry's chocolate orange. All year round it's a quid in different locations!!

Out of interest have you trained the Home to everyone's voice? I didn't as I think it gives each person a profile so we can't share my music? Perhaps that's my problem. I'll try to sneak it back this eve. If only you could change the wake word to Alexa

No training other than the initial setup bit. Whilst Alexa is more natural, it also means that the dot used to wake up with similar sounding words or sounds. No accidental waking up with the home so far. Try "hey Dougal" with the home though. Someone else suggested it on here and it makes my son laugh! Or try "Ok Booboo" Surprisingly it works.
