If the Google home mini grew up heat!

Lol, I think this looks a million times better than the home.

Agreed! I think the home is poorly designed in comparison to the rest. Reminds me of those Airwick air fresheners , with a speaker

Have just got a free nest mini, otherwise I'd have gotten this for the living room.

Does it work as well as a mini, does it hear you OK?
Voted hot, can't be bad, it's a Sony. Perhaps the brand needs mentioning in the title, I only clicked on it as i was curious what brand is LF, thought it was another made up brand.
Rubbish I've never heard of it

Edited, thanks Mr Sheffield
Very sensitive microphone, hears across the room no problem, works exactly the same as a mini but with about 50 percent better sound quality, along as you got the Google home app its does everything a Google speaker does. The built in clock looks nice and has a mic switch button to.
Had mine for 18 months, I now also have the lenovo Google 8inch speaker to
I've heard of Bush and decca

I don't believe that for 1 second.
Great sound
I have one. It's major disadvantage is that it does not have all the updates to the Assistant. You cannot make calls with it like you can on the Home/Home Mini.

Don't want my kids making calls with my Google account
A few other disadvantages: no DLNA/Spotify Connect; no hi-res audio, no good BT codecs = Sony's own LDAC nowhere to be heard, etc

Good looks/mic/price, splashproof always handy in a kitchen, better sound than regular Home, not bad for the money

This is the major concern that I have about the non-Google branded devices.
After Sony or Lenovo, etc have your money, what benefit to them repays them for any investment in software upgrades? The moment they lose interest in selling that model, why continue software development?
Of course, Google have a financial interest in keeping their devices producing data for as long as possible. But Sony, Lenovo... ?

They just want to improve their product over the air, so that you buy from them again. Manufacturers update their products with new features, security patches, etc so that they can beat competition. Few can afford not to keep working on their products after the sale

Sadly my experience of the lack of OTA Android security updates is what lead me to change to an Android One phone with guaranteed updates.
This lacks the wonderful free phone calling facility of the Google products, that they gained with an update about 18 months ago. (Do the Lenovo’s have it?) Will Sony add it now? I think not, but some might choose to hope.

For someone just wanting a voice-controlled streamed music player, I could believe that this was a fantastic deal. But without updates, it’s going to stay as less of an “assistant” than Google’s own products.

Sony has a good reputation with updates in smartphone world, as good as Android One, but that doesn't necessarily translate to good speaker support.

I think this is a good deal, was £200 at launch, personally I'd go for something better for lounge and maybe find a place for this one as kitchen speaker, on the strength of its water resistance.
Anyone know if these can be paired for stereo sound? Do they support Duo Calling (the intercom facility) between google smart speakers? Looking for a speaker (or 2) to go with a new desktop in a medium sized bedroom slash office. Thinking about Sonos 1 with assistant but heard goofle assistant isn't great on it.

Check this out too, maybe cheaper on eBay

petertyson.co.uk/lg-wk7w-wireless-speaker-soloco

Alternatively, to get the best of both worlds, buy a good BT speaker AND a Home mini, and hook them up.

With the mini at less than £20, you may even end up spending less
Edited by: "xavierluther" 30th Dec 2019
I have one and the negatives are that it doesn't support calling nor broadcasting. The volume control is also terrible, but if you use voice all the time that may not be a problem.

Everything (apps) works with Chromecast, including Apple Music

This is a good idea. So, effectively the speaker becomes a smart speaker thanks to Google mini connection?
I have a google assistant enabled alarm clock. Woukd 2 Google devices in 1 room be a problem? Thank you.
