Surprised that Google would hamper the successor's AI capabilities. Why would they not address that? Good to see electronics don't necessarily improve the newer they are. Like wine it seems, there are vintages. (High street chain staff rarely know the subject matter. The old independent shop used to be able to guide you if they were any good, so thank F there's somewhere like HUKD to act as a forum).
I Have one of these still unopened. Been in its box for 6 months now. I like that idea though
Thanks OP. My bedroom GHM stopped connecting to my WiFi and won't reset. My GHM backup (never used) also failed to connect to my network. So I was down to just my living room GHM and my Echo Input :)
Personal experience using it and the Home Mini at the same time.
My experience is fairly similar, 3 Minis and one Nest. Google sent me the Nest as part of a YouTube subscription freebie, so perhaps I'm going too easy on it :) Good to hear other peoples experiences before considering buying another!
