She looks smart and sexy sitting next to the monolithic Alexa.

Looks like an almost … not quite a full woman yet  

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 am totally bored with stupid #alexa.   #OkGoogle’s integration with my other google services is going to be quite convenient for me.  And she sound more personable … i said, “Ok google, good girl” … she responded in an excited voice,  “Thanks, i nailed it”!  I believe her.

I got her for ~$50 on the #BlackFriday special.  I paid twice that for the stupid girl.


Yep, and though she is a surly teen girl right now, it does look like she may mature on her own, possibly even without your intervention, as her services bloom out with auto update.  

yes i am hoping that she does. 

one little example …

“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.

#hmmm … i wonder … is there a #GoogleHome #api ?

answer perhaps is here on their forum.   especially https://developers.google.com/actions/ ← in which i just registered.

apparently #GoogleHome does not know how to pair with a #bluetooth devise.  to #alexa i just say, “pair” and she shows up on my laptop.  when i say that to google she tells me about a place neare me named “pair”.  I tried with no avail, to find where in the settings in her app there is such a concept as bluetooth pairing.  I need more resarch or maybe just accept that feature was left out.  She has a very excellant speaker … there is no logical reason that i should not be able to play though it. 

well okay …  #AcceptAndMoveOn … #OkGoogle is not a bluetooth speaker …

Bluetooth capabilities

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.

i will tease her about it anyway null
