If you have laggy Bluetooth audio just factory reset your Google Home. Only takes a minute to set back up and fixes the issue. Press and hold the mute key to do this! 👍
By far the cooler thing is the phone calling. This is pretty slick and pretty different than just having a speaker phone. Here you can just say "call mom" and not touch any keys. But it also knows me from my wife and from my kids. So my wife gets her mom and my kids get my wife.
But then they tied it to search. So I can just say "call Target" and gives me the closest Target. If you are searching for something hard to find this is fantastic as can do it while cooking which is really easy.
It is just insane that Amazon instead ads an intercom that ONLY calls other Alexa devices. How worthless. My Target does NOT have a Echo waiting for intercom coming in.
What I do not get is the Echo is coming up on being on the market 3 years. We purchased ours in the preview in late 2014. Yet Google has added far more great services in about 6 months. Which just does not make sense.
The one that really bites me in the butt with the Echo is the lack of knowing people apart. I do NOT like my kids messing up my music recommendations and so with the Google Home they ask for music it knows it is them and does not mess up my music request.
Amazon needs to fix the foundational things of the Echo really quickly. First the requirement to use commands and then it needs to know people apart.
This all IOT nonsense is going to destroy privacy in a matter of seconds, an d I definitely don't want to one some speaking speakers to do things what I can do myself very easily, nothing makes sense anymore to me
I love the idea, but I haven't got a Google Home because I really don't like its design. Looks like someone cut a lamp in half and used it as inspiration
Yeah turn the mics ON and spy on people even more
It sounds stupid but Google knows more about me than I know about myself
