Google has created a nice device that provides music and information by voice control. The microphone is very good and will usually pick up commands from across the room. The speakers sound surprisingly good for such a small device. I wish it had tone control though. It will stream Pandora, YouTube music, Spotify and Google Play Music. You do need to have a paid subscription to play specific songs on request. I subscribed to the YouTube Music app and it is pretty good. The only downside is I have most of my personal music collection on iTunes and it will not stream. Other than that it's a cool device.
NOTE: This is a product review. The seller is A+++ seller. 4/20/18 (Friday). It failed to wake me up for my critical trading day. I missed my sale of stock opportunity that cost me thousands. I never thought just basic features would fail to work. Google knew about the bugs. It is a good product except for the software reliability. Now I have to use my phone alarm in addition to Google Home (defeated the reason to use it as alarm or tasks reminding). For speaker, it has good sound and convienent to ask simple questions. I would give it a five stars if the software is fixed to ensure no critical features are failing. I give 5 stars for hardware 4.5 stars for AI ability to recognized questions. 1 stars for software QA since they missed basic features. OVER ALL 3 STARS.
Hopefully it will continue to evolve, but happy with the device. Plus I have Google Cast speakers which this helps me control and send music of my choice to my speakers. Love standard features, such as interfacing with google search, google music, etc. Plus, great alarm clock and keeps my calendar at my convenience.
