It's going back to the store today, after six weeks of ownership I've finally had enough. Home looks decent, but it's fair to say all of these devices are gimmicks right now (and I have hive integrated also and Spotify etc).



the problem is the americans, apple included, think everyone on the planet has an awesome busy life and lovely white teeth. the reality is most of us dont have much of a life to warrant an ai assistant (_;)

wow really? I love mine.

Turns the lights on & off without leaving my bed. Can turn off the tv without reaching the remote. Set alarms without looking for my phone, play music, blinds up and down, tell it to call my phone when I can't find it... everything... just by telling it to do it.

Pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me.

Do I bite now and get Google home or wait? I've got hive installed and at present doesn't support it

I'll wait for houses built by Google where all these would be inbuilt

I would've snapped it up if i didn't have Alexa

Google made a boo-boo by not releasing Google Home in the UK when it first came out as I'm sure like myself, many others decided to go down the Amazon Alexa route instead. Personally, I'm waiting for Lenovo to release their Smart Assistant which is for all intent and purpose is an Amazon Echo but with better sound quality. shop.lenovo.com/us/…nt/

You can use IFTTT to create an applet for Google home with hive apparently.

yep, but a few things it falls short on...it's Hive, not IFTTT.
- Can't set desired temperature
- Can't boost for 30 minutes, only 1 hour
- Doesn't seem to turn heating off, even though it says it can.

Anything further complicated than the above, it also can't do.

What'a the dig with all these smart bulb? Doesn't sound environmentallu friendly if people are encouraged to replace bulbs to have smarthome functionality. Makes much more sense to have something convert existing bulbs.

That's fine. My phone is nearly always nearby anyway to use the hive app. It's not a deal breaker for me , but I'm waiting before i take the plunge anyway.

I was going to pre order for about 20 quid more tother week so glad i didn't, cheers op.

It's better than Alexa in my opinion apart from the fact that you have to say 'Okay Google' all the time. Really irritating and until they change that people will be put off buying it. I certainly won't be buying one until they allow me to name the devices.

There's a lot of people moaning about it on the internet. Ok Google just doesn't roll easily off the tongue like the word Alexa does. It's a shame as Google Home has much better AI than Alexa in my opinion.

Only playing mate. I value the input. I've only went for it as I've got no Amazon devices or subs, but I've got Nexus tablet, phone and Chromecast.

Looking forward to playing with it.

Cool. Another thing people are complaining about is that if their other devices are nearby, saying Ok Google activates those too and leads to errors.

Personally I would just prefer to name my devices as it would make them feel more human, to give them a personality of their own. I mean imagine naming all your pets Ok Google.

Also you'd think the so called 'king of marketing' wouldn't have made such a huge sequence of errors like this on something so key to the success of a product.

very thougthful, thanks

I've had a Home for about a month, shipped in from the states, but haven't used it much. I have a house full of Sonos gear and play all my audio via that, as a result the Home can't really hear me much! It can hear me fine if it's playing music itself, even loudly, but I don't use it to play audio due to having better options so really, it's not a good fit for me or anyone else who plays a lot of audio and doesn't want to switch to playing that audio via the Home. I tied it into my house control system but rarely use it to control that as it's only in one room, while my phone and watch are with me all the time, plus most of my lights are movement activated so no real need to control via voice. So, overall, I find these voice-control devices to be gimmicky, and anyone who has a mature house control system or plays a lot of audio will probably find what they have more convenient already.

That sounds very useful - do you mind sharing how you set that up?
I've seen an iftt applet that does something similar, but it's US only, and can't get it to work here in the UK
