Google Home on offer for £69 (usually £129)

If anyone was looking to pull the trigger, now would be the time.
Given that the the Home Mini generally retails for only slightly less, this is a great deal.

I have every product in the Google Home Family: This one, the Mini, the Max and the Hub.

This one (the original Home) is the solid, reliable mid-ranger. It picks up sound very well and has impressive sound quality. It’s not an audiophile device, but it’s well suited for music.

I’ve seen a ton of offers on these devices recently -
Must be gearing up for a new range soon (although hard to imagine the new ones will be a massive step up).

How are you getting along with yours?

Mine is sat under my desk off. I never use it. Just don’t see any value or use for it.

I’ve not used it at all - It’s simply listening in to all my office conversations :joy:

I really got it to “see what it was like” - Being an Apple house, the one mini doesn’t really fit in.

It’s definitely the best assistant I’ve used - If it played nice with Apple Music, I’d buy the bigger version!

But… my house has yet to adopt the whole voice assistant thing - Opting to use the apps to control the various smart things instead (possibly cause Siri is just so bad, it’s much quicker to use the apps!)

I may end up getting the HomePod for music alone, but I don’t see any more “assistant speakers” being used for the assistant side of things!

I am happy with the mini, don’t think I would get this.

Was looking at the Home Hub but Alexa Show has a bigger screen.

Lenovo make a Google Assistant hub with a 10" screen. There’s rumors that Google will do a Home Hub Max soon as well.

(Simon B) #8

This is rumoured to be on the cards. Might well get announced at Google I/O next month.

I think it is on Alexa now as well (or very soon) although would sound better on Google which is why I like the mini, sound on the dot is crap lol

Check John Lewis. I am positive I saw an 8" Lenovo hub on offer there recently, might have been £30 off the RRP.

I have one. It sits unplugged in the office room… She kept speaking to me randomly for no reason what so ever.

They’re the same price in Argos so for those impatient like me, you can click and collect to save waiting for delivery :smiley:

I know someone looking to get one of these! Great price. Thanks for sharing.

Have a “free” one I got bundled in with my Pixelbook last year

Convinced me that it is a worthy addition to a household

Just bought another in this deal from John Lewis :slight_smile:

Max in the living room.
Hub and Home in the kitchen.
Home in the master bedroom.
6 x Mini in dining room, study, hall and other bedrooms.

£69 for the original Home is a bargain! Shame I have nowhere to put it :joy:

Have the mini. What are most people using theirs for?

    1. Nice…
  1. I have mine down to my mum, currently my tiny flat is decked out with 2 home hubs and a mini. Love these devices. I’d have my whole home voice activated if it was possible.
