I have got an Amazon echo at the moment but it has been really annoying us recently by activating when we didn't speak to it. Has anyone had any experience with both Google Home and the Echo? Thinking of switching, especially at this price.

My Alexa in the kitchen does that, my Home Mini in another room has never
Love my Google Home, have this and 2 minis in my house so far. Very useful in the kitchen when your hands are not free and for controlling Chromecast devices.
oos
main difference that i've found between them in terms of activation is that you can't actually talk about alexa without her waking up, but because the keywords for google to wake up are different, you can.

both do burble occasionally when you don't expect them to, but alexa seems to do that more often for me - i have them both in the same room, so comparing is pretty easy.

for me, i like alexa's brevity and the fact that the smart home integration via the alexa app gives you buttons to turn things on and off, which google's home app doesn't. to be fair, i'm now using smartthings instead so that's not much of an issue for me any more. google does voice recognition which is much better in a multi-user household, but tends to babble on a lot more when turning lights on and off. really, though, they're much of a muchness, and it mainly comes down to what you're using with them rather than the devices themselves as to which is better. i lean toward google, but then i use their services heavily (email, calendars, etc) and have a multi-user household (2 adults, 2 kids) all using multiple devices.

Although it impacts the convenience of just speaking to the echo, you can turn the mic off and use an Echo remote which should mean it'll only be listening when you press the remote button. Both the Echo and Google Home activate with false positives; for us the Home was far more enthusiastic when not required; even in a room where it should have been completely quiet, you could hear the activation sound kick in. Spooky. So much so that we've now got it on a smart plug and ask the echo to turn it on only when we want to use it. That may change now that I've finally been able to link the GH to an external bluetooth speaker, a feature that wasn't available when we first purchased it and meant that the Echos ruled the roost for playing music etc. The Home's radio streaming ability seems to be more reliable than the Echo which often just stops playing. This may be due to a number of factors, WiFi, bluetooth etc. so ymmv.
Refurbished my backside, mines just been delivered with a big hole in the material base, right at the front, and its registered to someone else as back garden speaker. going straight back.
