I've been getting some ads for Google Homes/Google Home Minis for a reduced price. Presumably they're a bit of a gimmick right now? Because to get value you need to spend hundreds on smart plugs, lights, Chromecasts, etc, and even then not everything is compatible?

Although kinda tempted to get one for the bedroom which can be an alarm/play radio/etc .

Or is the upcoming Apple one going to own (enough to justify the higher price)?

We have 2 google home mini and will probably get a google home for the new kitchen instead of a mini. Use mine all the time. It’s really handy being able to do stuff like play music hands free when dealing with kids.

But they’re pretty limited right now, no? So it’s basically for playing music, setting timers, and setting alarms? You can add connectivity to all sorts of other devices, but that’s basically a hit way of doing it and we’re really waiting for the internet of things to become normal?

It definitely helps if you all ready have other Android products, like Chromecast that you mentioned but some TV's are built on Android too so I think Google Home can talk to them too. too too too

Do you have anything like that already?

Nah, nothing, so I think it's too early. Have Apple stuff, but only an Apple TV outside of phones/tablets/computers, so the Apple one might be better if I'll be able to use it to control stuff on my TV or iMac.

Yeah, doesn't really make sense to get Google Home when you've already got Apple gear unless you just fancied it at the cost to tinker. From what I read and personal experience using Siri and Google Assistant, the latter definitely understands voice commands better.
