    Silly question . What do you guys mostly use the mini for? I have the normal home and find the sound quality poor.

    •  

      Mini seems poor, regular is good sound.

      •  

        They both sound similar to me, which is pretty average. Two minis can be hooked up together as stereo sound though.

        •  

          If you have four of them, can they be used as a TV surround sound system ??

      Playing music via Chromecast.
      Wifi lights are cheap now ($20 at Kmart).
      Turning TV off Via CEC on the Chromecast.
      Setting alarms.
      Writing to-do lists.
      Check the weather.
      Operating RF wall plugs via a Broadlink RM pro remote repeater.
      Sending IR codes to the home theatre receiver via the Broadlink RM pro.
      Turning on the projector via Broadlink.
      Lowering and raising projector screen via Broadlink.
      Just set up a routine where if I say "Philadelphia won the basketball game" it switches some lights to red and others to blue (team colours) then plays the team song via YouTube on the Chromecast.

      It's a GREAT radio … loud and good sound compared to most radios. "OK Google, play ABC Melbourne".

      I use mine to control my room. Computer sleep, shutdown, lock, restart, and wake up. Lights. Music to my Bose BT speaker. I'm also going to try and control my curtains when I get some time with nothing better to do.

        How do you use it to control your computer?

          Google home -> ifttt -> eventghost -> pc

          Or for waking:

          Google home -> ifttt -> server -> eventghost -> pc

          •  

            @nurries: which tutorial did you follow to do this?

            sounds cool thing to do to control the pc

      •  

        I thought Bose on,y worked with Alexa? Or do you chromecast it? I have a SoundTouch10.

        Also, would I need a CC to turn on our 3yr old Samsung Smart tv via the google mini?

    • +1 vote

      Yeah, Home quality is pretty bad. JBL Link 20 is much better sound than the regular home, is portable, and waterproof. For roughly the same price.

      The mini makes a lot more sense than the main home - as it just acts as a microphone/assistant more-so than a high quality speaker.

      I keep mine in the bedroom so Google employees can listen to me have sex. Jokes, I don't have partner.

        Don't forget! You can do multi-room audio, so you can link several minis together, spread them around and play music through all of them.
        Honestly the best feature

    • +8 votes

      Use mine constantly for:
      - listening to the news at breakfast
      - adding groceries to shopping list
      - weather at night and during the day
      - kids play animal sounds and the Wiggles game
      - Spotify and my Google Play Music collection
      - Turning the lights on and off or (usefully) to a baby night light (since you tend to be holding a baby when you want that light setting)
      - timers for cooking are very useful especially when hands are covered in flour or something (multiple timers is a good feature too)
      Occasional stuff:
      - translations (language)
      - definitions of words or spelling
      - asking what song is playing when it's Spotify radio
      - conversions (Forex)
      - playing podcasts
      - as a Bluetooth speaker

        I constantly use it to ask questions:
        - "what does the fox say?"
        - "who let's the dog out?"

          Hey Google: “I see a little silhouetto of a man”

        Hi txchou,

        What do you use for adding grocery items to a shopping list? Like what app and what do you say?

        Thanks in advance

        •  

          Google home has a built in reminder list function. just say "add X to my grocery shopping list".

          Then I've linked/synced it up to my iOS reminders list using IFTTT. Works like a treat.

      My 6 year old is constantly asking it questions. How to spell something and random trivia style questions like tell me about pluto.

      We also use it to interact with the tv. "play peppa pig on YouTube" or "play cars on Netflix" or "turn TV off" which is great for when you're going to bed and can't find the remote.

      A month is all you need I'm fairly certain. So essentially you can buy a Google Home Mini for $17.99. Spotify Family only charges $17.99 a month with no lock in contract. So you should be able to just cancel it after a month.

        Use a card without enough money, it fails but still allows you to get the free mini.

        How long does it take to get redemption codes? It's taking me to checkout page where it's charging me the original price $79

          eh?

          •  

            @John Kimble: In order to fulfill this offer, Google needs to share certain redemption information that might identify you with Spotify, including order status, country, code ID, date of redemption, date of shipping, product SKU, order number, and batch ID

            I haven't got that info from Google yet. Though I have got an email saying "your Google home mini is now available".

            •  

              @Pisasud08: In that email there is a link that says "get it now" click on that and follow the prompts.

                •  

                  @Pisasud08: Yep, the "redemption code" is the unique URL in your email…dunno why it didn't work for you initially.

        reckon it works ok upgrading from standard membership to family for one month then downgrading again? can get it for $5 that way

        edit: seems legit. just upgraded and ordered. zero delivery too which is cool

    I get a red error message “Unfortunately, there is no support at the moment to make this type of change to your subscription. Contact our customer service team who can help you further.” ….

    •  

      Is your subscription ‘Premium for Family’?
      OP might want to emphasise that bit for ‘existing users’.

      •  

        Yes, turned out it was Getflix dns thing getting in the way. Worked a treat after disabling.

        •  

          Fab 👍

      happening to me too did you end up fixing it?

      •  

        "At this time, only a Premium for Family plan owner can sign up to the Google Home Mini offer. You can’t get it as part of someone else’s plan."

        got it so you have to be the owner.

    confirmed that it's free. my order was made on 7:27:30

    •  

      And how long till you get delivery confirmation/ shipment advice from google?

      •  

        Order confirmation comes straight away. Delivery expected 3 to 9 May.

        •  

          Got that, however was just worried that if i cancel my sub google may dishonor the order? Do they pre auth the credit card provided to google store at time of order?

      If you were already into the month of the existing price, did they charge your the difference or what? Still a week or 2 out from thr month end and have premium atm.

      Was talking to my dad about cheesecake and one of the ads on the YouTube app we’re about cheesecake. I have Google maps, translate, YouTube and gmail installed. Only translate and YouTube have mic access

      I suspect I might have enabled mic access to one of the apps (probably for dictation)

        It's plausible but there are so many factors other than realtime natural language processing that would lead to u seeing an advert about cheesecake.

        • +2 votes

          Yep, it's possible but the real answer is that they have enough info on us already that it just isn't necessary.

          I never see ads for wedding jewellery. My friend just got engaged and her ring had a ruby stone, gold ring, with tiny opals on it (pretty unique piece!). We talked about it a month ago. Only recently, she messages me upon request, a photo of said ring. I then see an ad for it the next day. Can't accept it's a coincidence. I'm not a jewellery nor wedding kinda gal so the fact that this ad appeared when I've never seen that sort before was solid to me.

          Ads have also happened after other random conversations of things I'd never usually be interested in.

          That being said, I don't really care that much if they snoop. It's just annoying.

        •  

          Eg. your mum or dad Googled cheesecake on another computer on the same WIFI and the ads were targeted to your home's interests, not just your own interests.

          •  

            @HeavenlyHammocks: Well here is the interesting bit. The day it happened was when I visited my brother in Sydney and the Internet was a 4G spintel service that I bought over from Melbourne. Never spoke about cheesecake before

            I opened up and fridge and noticed a cheesecake and talked briefly about it, later that night it showed up on YouTube ads 🤷‍♂️

      not much.. plenty of ~$20 ones due to less legit ways of getting these codes around for ~$10

    •  

      You can buy the codes on eBay etc for around $15 so that’s what the units are worth at the moment, nothing more.
