I was adamant about Google until around a year ago. Now it's gotten worse. I constantly have to say the same commands multiple times to get it to recognize what I say.

And because of a lawsuit, you basically can't group speakers together.

For instance I use to be able to cast Lofi around my entire house for some nice background music no matter where I go. Now that's impossible.

Honestly it's gotten so much worse, I've been thinking about switching.
This isn't the one with a camera, but $50 for a digital photo frame and also a way to stream nest cameras (we use Nest for our kids rooms), this is a pretty good price.
Google's AI is far better than Amazons, meta's, and Apple's AI. Chances are it will understand most of the complicated stuff you ask whereas the others will not. It's perfect for kids who like asking questions. This unit also doesn't have a camera so you can put it in places like the bathroom.

The issue with any Google product is that you never know when Google will just randomly cancel it. Why? Google's promotion system still relies on employees making new products and services. Maintaining existing product lines will not get you promoted. This is a big reason why Google ends up cancelling products, just to release a similarly product with a different name. Worse is when they completely kill off a product like Nest Protect or even the Nest App and replace it with something inferior and broken e.g. I don't think they fixed Nest Cam integration with their Google Home app yet. They just don't like maintenance. Another example is even years after release, having different profiles on Google TV will only work by luck.

To be fair all of the smart home platforms have their pros and cons. Google's cons just really piss me off.

It should still be free for the rest of the year - check out Google Fit's sleep tracker. Google tells me how much sleep I'm getting - this is why I bought one of these and have it on my bedside table.

Does it track if you snore?

Google has better answers for questions and things with decent home control. Alexa has better smart home integrations.

For smart displays tho Google all the way. I own multiple Nest Hubs and echo shows and by by far the screens on the Echo shows are useless. The Nest hubs are good at popping up controls when detecting motion with relevant buttons and things that you can touch whereas the Echo Show literally just shows news and pictures

This could be a good way to manage Matter devices when they launch. It's the cheapest Matter border router out there

The best part about this hub is, when idle, displays photos from my Google Photos randomly, I love it. Rest of other features are great. I have no Alexa devices but I am happy with this.

Unless you have these sitting right next to you (nightstands end tables), these are pretty terrible to use just as voice control devices. Google often will display search results that are useless unless you are right at the display or have bionic eyes. And why wouldn't I just use my phone instead?
The algorithms for these are strictly for use within a few inches away from the display whereas non- screen devices are for being several feet away from the device. And also, google really hates you knowing the time on these. If you do anything on the display, the clock disappears completely. For example, listen to music or the news while you get ready? No clock. This baffles me. My experience was so bad with these displays, I went to a lenovo essentials clock and am much happier.

You say Alexa all the way then list off a bunch of reasons it sucks?

Sorry meant to say Google all the way! will fix my type-o.

Alexa as a platform is good for smart home integration i.e Routines, device compatibility. Google is decent at this as well but my gripe with alexa is the devices with screens are not very useful. I would recommend getting an echo dot or something with no screen. If you do like the screen displays, Nest hub is superior. Hope this helps! I know it's confusing but this is just my consensus as a long time smart home Enthusiast and developer!

I have one of these and it's great in the kitchen to cast YouTube, Plex, or music/podcasts to while cooking. Love it.
