What makes Google Home better than Alexa?


Broadly,. Alexa got better Amazon integration and better range of snarthome 'skills', Google Home better at Google-related stuff (search,maps, etc.) and much better for extended conversation because it does context.

For example, you can say, “What’s the weather like tomorrow?” to get a forecast. Follow up with, “And tomorrow”, and Google knows that you’re after a follow-up weather report.

Google catching up on the smart home stuff.

Only £6 less than the Google store. It is much better to pay the £6 extra and get a proper zero quibble post sale service.

I have returned two of these to google (out of quite a few) and they were not purchased from the Google store, Google is great with support regardless, just keep your receipt.

Was it my imagination or did these go for £79 just after release? I've seen the mini for £34 loads of times now but never this that cheap and I'm now wondering if I imagined it.

No, its been lower than that. I paid £78 last Black Friday, not sure if that was the lowest or anyone had it a few quid cheaper.
I m sure I bought one of these when there was a promotion with the newspaper it was £49(?)
Ah well £99's the best price I can see right now, so heat from me.

Seconded, my dog chewed the lead I asked if they could sell me a new one and they swapped the whole unit FOC. Cant fault the after sales.

Thank you ^-^
Got one of these the other day for £106 and love it.
The wife was that impressed by it she bought a mini one for the kitchen.
Heat.
Awesome sound from this speaker , good deep base ! Bought one at launch for around £160 !!
Got mine on the telegraph offer. 49.99£ with years free digital telegraph newspaper. Wish I'd got more but thought at time there must be a catch. There wasn't.

That's odd, I've always found the sound quite tinny and muffled compared to Alexa.

Wonder if my unit is screwed.

Google is a more open platform, it allows you to use Netflix, Spotify, Deezer as well as its own services unlike Alexa.
I have this model, as well as a couple of echos. I invariably have to repeat myself when saying OK Google as it won't hear me the first time.. My phone usually hears me though and interrupts me trying to get the home to listen for a third time. Most annoying, it clearly needs more microphones to prevent me having to shout at it.

Alexa also does Spotify, probably just as well as amazon music is pish

Ah my mistake, must have been added after I set mine up a few years ago. I'll dust off my dot and hook it up.

I had a similar issue, so I went to activity and listened to a recording of what I said and it sounded Terrible. I was surprised it worked at all. So called support, turned out it had a faulty mic (I think the other half or someone may have dropped it). Anyway replaced and not issues at all!
Decent price, but I found a nearly new one, for the price, on Gumtree!

Surely a new one from bt is better than a nearly new one from gumtree for the same money?
The Mini's are really good too. Really loud. I have two in my house.

This is very true. I couldn't believe the sound that comes out of my mini.
Brill. Thanks.
