Another girl for my nightstand ...
Now i can pit them directly against each other
She looks smart and sexy sitting next to the monolithic Alexa.
Google Home is a great way to show off just how smart Google is, but it doesn’t feel like an essential experience yet. That’s mainly because it lags behind the Echo in terms of support for third-party services. That makes Echo a smarter buy if you want to control smarthome devices -- but Home is a perfectly viable option for those who use lots of Google services.
I got her for ~$50 on the #BlackFriday special. I paid twice that for the stupid girl.
“Ok google, how do you spell thankfu?”
“Thankful is spelled t h a n k f u l”.
“Alexa, how do you spell thankful?”
“Sorry i did not understand the question that i heard.”
When i hear her say that again, i may puke.
answer perhaps is here on their forum. especially https://developers.google.com/actions/ ← in which i just registered.
i will tease her about it anyway
Unlike the Alexa speakers, the Google Home doesn’t have Bluetooth. That means you can’t just stream audio from your phone, so you’re forever stuck with whatever services are officially integrated with Google Home.
