    I had a Google Home device and got a Mini for Christmas. The Mini's audio quality is not a the level of an AV system, but I was surprised at how loud and clear it could get.

    Just saying, not trying to sway, but keep an eye out for GH...

    mine is still working as well....

    google home in kitchen
    google mini in master bedroom

    so far my thoughts (don't have an alexa)

    Google Home and Google Mini
    pro:
    * sounds great
    * mic is super sensitive
    * integration into HS has been super easy
    * send from note 8 easily
    * created a huge WAF and KID interaction
    * now can have family turn lights on/off - holiday inside lights
    con:
    * haven't found one

    I am glad I told the wife I wanted to go the "Google" route as a friend has the Amazon Echo and while they love theirs, Google is hitting it home in my house. I searched and searched and I too saw that the Amazon is ahead... for now.. Google is closing in bigtime.
    a guy at work has the Samsung Smart Hub and using Alexa and he is intrigued (I'm trying to convince him on the homeseer venture!!!)

    Sorry for what seems like a dumb question, but does GH run events as well like echo?

    While I have a couple of dots, my buddy got a GH for a Christmas gift and I was surprised at the sound of that thing playing music. Has me wonder if I should get one...

The strange thing was that Google Assistant on my android phone still executed the HS commands. In hindsight that should've clued me into focusing on the GH device itself.

    I set up a Home Mini today and it executed HS commands as soon as I got it configured OOTB. Saying, "Turn on the table lamp" to the Mini worked right away. I walked into the kitchen and said the same thing to the original GH and it said, "Sorry, I'm not sure how to help with that."

    That led me to do a factory reset on the original GH, which cured the problem right away. I didn't have to change anything in my Google Home account or HS.
    We are receiving many support requests on this issue and in nearly all cases the factory reset solves the issue. There must be a firmware issue affecting certain units.

    It's not the GH app is it? Was contemplating deleting app data as well.

    We've had several users having issues with their Google Home device needing to be hard reset to start working again.

    started a topic Google Home not working

    Google Home not working

    Is anyone else having problems with GH link to HS?

    MyHS seems to be accessible, but GH voice control has all of a sudden stopped working on all 4 of my MyHS accounts. Checked with a friend and he is also having the same problem.

    Could be a problem on Google's end as there also seems to be a problem with GH voice training not working.
Working...
