    Google Home just gets better and better. It is beginning to look even better than Alexa. Google has just added a few new feature to the new home automation platform. You can now cast Netflix with Google Home. Just say something like, "Ok Google play House Of Cards from Netflix on my TV" and your show will begin to play on the TV! You can also give it commands like, "Hey Google pause this episode". Of course there will be many commands that will work along with Netflix. Google Photos can also be cast to your TV with Google Home now. This update makes Google Home pretty compelling! It should be noted that the commands only work if Google Home is paired up with a Chromecast device.

    When I discovered it could not play albums or songs uploaded to the Google music cloud I returned it to Best Buy. Just not quite ready for prime time in my opinion. Hopefully it soon will be.

    I agree. I want to get one but Alexa is still kicking it's butt.
    I have a CC but we don't use it for Netflix. Ever. Talk to me when Home can run my Roku.

    So this guy works for a company named Stack Overflow. Its the company my wife just started working for. I think his take on the Google Home may be of some use.

    Don’t buy anything Made by Google.

    (Ignore the Pixel problem he descirbes. You drop your phone, expect it to break.)

    I'm not sure I agree with his assessment. Mine does a lot of the things he complains about. But to each their own.

    Yea, that's a horrible review.
    So he bought a Home and what? Gave his echo away? And I want to see his kitchen. If it was in my kitchen, one side of it would be...yep against a wall. I should put it on the island?

    True, even the Echo has a power cord coming out of it. It's not self powered, one side is normally near a wall.

    And I have set numerous timers from across the kitchen successfully. Don't need to see the top ring light up, she answers with "OK...Timer is set"
