I bought one of these and an Amazon Echo Show 5 when they were both at £50 at Christmas for use as a night stand clock alarm. I was astonished as to how good this is for that particular purpose and quite how poor the Amazon was, which was sent back. It's a really crisp screen (the Amazon was fuzzy), very responsive touch (the Amazon wasn't) and the way it operates the auto features as it goes dark is just perfect. The photo frame is really easy to set up and it operated with my Nest heating really easily. I found I could say pretty much anything and the Google seems to understand it, for example "play radio 4 headlines" and it comes back with the latest headline from BBC R4. Say anything similar to the Amazon and it hasn't a clue. You have to mention the skill you want it to use, then a command related to it, for instance "use the BBC to play radio 4 headlines". I know it seems minor, but it's like a game of "Simon says", it just seemed like a faff by comparison.

On the other hand, I wouldn't recommend it as a main speaker; for that the Amazon has much better sound. It's fine and clear for voice but for music it's a bit thin. You can cast the sound to a bluetooth speaker if you want good sound.

Summary - perfect for bedside alarm clock, nice photo frame, not so great for music.

Can these do video calls, WhatsApp it Google Duo?


They can do duo voice calls. But don't have a camera so whoever you phone won't be able to see you. You will be able to see them though.
A great bit of kit. Also a great photo frame. I have 4 and a nest hub max and I love them.

Nope. You need a Google hub max for camera

Great information, cheers
Thanks for posting. I’ve been waiting for this to come on offer for a while
Love mine, no issues whatsoever and decent sound for the price.
Thanks I've finally taken the plunge.
Would John Lewis match this?? Do they match bt shop?
I do love mine but think the nest mini we have works much better, is it just me?
What's the sound like on these anyone

Was thinking the same but They(BT) don't have any high street stores so possibly not
Currys now same price so that will allow the John Lewis option.

Better than a dot / home mini but not amazing. They are good for around the house but not as a main room speaker. The photo frame feature and everything else is great though if that helps
Very good as a radio alarm clock.
John Lewis reduces but only to £69?? Do they match Currys even though they offer 2 yr warranty instead? Seems odd they reduce it but still £10 more???

Is this a special feature or same as what you could do with a home mini? i.e. Hey Google. Play BBC radio 1 at 7.15 am.

You can set an alarm/s i.e. I have two alarms set per morning for the week (exc the weekend).

At present in the UK you can only have it beep as an alarm, which you can snooze (touch the screen) or just say Stop (no need for Ok Google, Stop).

I believe in the US they can set the radio to come on for the alarm, so we should get that feature soon.
Although I believe if you set your settings to US, it may work, but I haven't tried it.
I want something like this for a live display of my google calendar without having to manual refresh.. Can it do this?. Any video example online?

it's not just a photo frame. i use it in the kitchen to play me recipe videos off youtube and also to watch our front door via a nest hello if i'm awaiting a parcel and busy cooking. therefore i can turn down the gas, heat, etc before rushing to get the door rather than rushing in a panic and forgetting and burning something when it rings unexpectedly.

Never said it was mate
This works really well with the Nest Hello video doorbells. It launches the video feed when bell pressed.

Makes a super photo frame as many have mentioned.

Yes, and I find it bizarre that on the Google Nest Mini you can say "Set a radio alarm for 7:30am to play radio 4" and it works great, but say the same thing to this (supposedly the same Google assistant??) and it responds with "I'm sorry I can't do that yet". Very strange and has been the only bugbear to me for an otherwise excellent device. I did try setting it to US but then you get the whiny voice and it doesn't understand half the stuff you say (simulating real Americans ;))

Haha. Let us know how you get on with the price match. Thinking of cashing in Quidco vouchers at JL for this.
There's bound to be an ebay code in the next few days to undercut this
You can use routines to play the radio at say 7am, switch off the display, set volume level etc. Just takes a few minutes to set up.

Works very well as an alarm clock and display dims down so you don't see a backlit screen
great gadget,,,really want a max though
I have one of these and, for me, it was my best purchase over Christmas. I would buy another if I had a use case.
The screen is crisp and bright and the sound is good enough for a kitchen speaker.
The photo frame is excellent. Take a photo on your Android device, go in to Google Photos, move the photo to your photo frame folder and it will appear on the Google Hub within mins. Great job. I use mine to display photos while playing to music / radio. Hopefully, Google will release an update to play videos from Google Photos as this is not yet possible.
The Google Assistant works really well and it's as easy as saying "Ok Google, play BBC Radio Two" or "Ok Google, tell me the news" and it works great. It can even answer questions like "Ok Google, what is the capital " and "Ok Google, who invented ...". You can also control the volume by saying "Ok Google, volume 20%"
Also, it's great for displaying and talking you through recipes.
I have mine linked up to Spotify.
Have tested YouTube and it works great.

IMO, great investment.

Thanks just got mine
It's useful to know that this does not use the same Assistant service as other Google Home devices. For example it uses a different language translation service to other Google/Nest Home devices (aside from the bigger hub).

It provides a larger set of languages for translation - such as Latin.

It uses the same - more powerful - Assistant service as Android and iOS devices.

Is Google home hub and the Nest hub the same product?
