I was really stoked. Alexa is nice... and very versatile. She's great at what she does, but what she does is primarily consumption-focused. She'll help you buy something (from Amazon, of course) with a single command. But then Google Home comes along, promising to be more information-focused. I want information. So we invested in the Google ecosystem. I bought three Google Homes, a SmartThings hub, two smart outlets and a Honeywell smart thermostat. I already had smart outlets and a smart thermostat, but they were Alexa-compatible and not Home-compatible. The plan was to sell off the entire Alexa ecosystem as a set. Not so fast. If Google Home is tied in at all to the Google database of everything, I'd be surprised. It seems to be Google Lite - there are a few things it does okay, a couple it does well, and so much it's really lousy at. For example: "Okay Google, when was the last time Army beat Navy?" "Sorry, I'm not sure how to help with that yet." I opened Google Search on my phone and asked it the exact same question. 2001. And that's just one example - there are plenty of others. Half the time we say "Okay Google" or "Hey Google", it doesn't even recognize that we said it. That means we have to literally turn a look at Google Home to make sure it's listening before rattling off a command or request. We are so frustrated and disgusted by its limitations that we're on the bleeding edge of divesting ourselves of everything and setting up Alexa again. I sent feedback to Google, advising them that they had better make Google Home a lot smarter in a hurry, or we're out. Of course, I've received nothing back... not that I expected anything.
