    Google Home

    I bought the Google Home box today and like the fact that in 42 years of being wed I've finally found a woman who will do as I say 😁

    Anyway I have Spotisfy free but will probably need a subscription so anyone a view on the ones I should look at, and price?

    Many thanks

    We ditched Spotify and moved to Amazon music, seems just as good and slightly cheaper.

    Spotify free does work but I think it has adverts and not sure it'll play latest stuff. May look at add ons later

    Re: Google Home

    I almost got one before Christmas as I saw an offer for a free one when a Nest Protect was ordered (which I needed) from John Lewis, but I couldn't get the code to work and so gave up and bought elsewhere. I was sort of holding out for the Apple HomePod (big Apple user) but now I have a Sonos Play:1 that takes care of most of the music playing requirements.

    I don't have google home or anything like it but i do have a spotify subscription. If you're going to use it a lot then its well worth the money to upgrade in my opinion. I went for the family upgrade, which means all the kids have it on there phones/tablets for £15 per month. You cant buy 2 cds for that.

    How does it control the existing TV and boiler then? Do you have to buy special thermostat for example?

    Adverts are minimal so not really noticed them and it's played the latest stuff for me.
