    NOT for $130.00. It's an exciting idea, but you need to purchase so many other items to have it actually be worth it, that even living with roommates doesn't make the cost worth it. You have to pay for Internet, the other devices, the Google home device, plus other stuff. Include food, bills, etc., I'd never leave the house, and wouldn't be able to do anything, just to pay for this thing.

    No Bluetooth support. Google wants one to buy Chromecast audio for music. Not reqd. Amazon echo has Bluetooth support.

      You can cast any music over WiFi from your phone or music services to Google home. This means you can walk around the house and not lose connection. Plus it's higher sound quality than Bluetooth. I have Alexa and a home and don't miss Bluetooth one bit even though I used it every day before Google.

        Ok , here's one example why I prefer Alexa :
        On my ph, I set up a youtube(just youtube app not the paid version) playlist and play it on Echo through bluetooth.

        But Google Home does not allow me do that unless I use their paid version of youtube music

          All you have to do is cast your phone's audio to Home and play your YouTube playlist as before. Since this uses the cast feature it is through WiFi and as long as you stay on the wireless network you can move around the house freely.
          Btw I'm talking about the Cast Screen and audio function built into Android, not YouTube.

    I use Google home and Chromecast / Chromecast audio. It's sooo cool. And light controls by hue, perfect. I wait here in Switzerland for the release to buy my second Google home +1

    We are trying to lower our monthly expenditures, not increase it! If the deal was cheaper and way below $100/month we would do it. But as it stands now - not happening any time soon.
