It's hard to see because we are living our lives to day but, when you look back at how fast our technology has progressed.. Google employees have done an outstanding job with voice recognition. Extremely hard.
ive got an Alexa and a google home mini.. its really depressing when neither of them can answer a question you have. I guess its due to the german language (me german). I tried several of the question you made and the German google home mini is way worse in answering them. but I guess thats just natural considering the amount of english speaking people vs those who speak german ¯_(ツ)_/¯
What nobody is talking about is the massive amounts of bandwidth the mini is using at idle. I purchased 2 at Christmas 2017 and my data usage in almost every month since has come close or gone over my limit. I have contacted Google via Twitter and also talked about this in forums and Google is not responding. If you research this issue, you will find so many people experiencing the same issue as me and not one solution is coming from any representative from Google. This might be a great video for you to research this and have an updated review.
I'm just wondering... Will it be bad if I buy it in the US with your link eventhough I'm from Belgium ? For some strange reason it cost here around 79 euro, wich is 97 USD. Eventhough it is free shipping... Don't get it :/
Ok question. So I want to get one of these but I do not have WiFi at my house.. but I have unlimited data on my phone so can I connect it thru my phone's Bluetooth and will it function as it it were running on wifi?
I don't know why I'd get this over using my phone connected to a speaker and using Google assistant on it! Is there any advantage to having the speaker or is it the same as using the assistant on my phone?
The fact that it can control your chrome cast justifies the purchase alone, I created a voice activated smart 4k tv for <$350..with a $250 40" Sceptre LED, $35 Chrome Cast, $39 home mini...thanks google!! Great vid Marques!
