I got given a Google Home mini for Christmas, though I wasn't able to start using it till a few weeks ago. The most useful feature (so far) has been the Shopping List; anyone in the house can add items to it, and when I go to the shop (as long as I have my phone with me) there on the phone is the list in text form. I have found many of "her" response to questions, etc very amusing, and have tested "her" to evoke other responses. Asking simple questions (that I know could be looked up on Google) brings quick simple answers; there's a skill to knowing how to phrase something to get an answer (other than "I'm sorry, but I can't help with that right now"). I like being able to ask for the local weather, the current news, some music (I've joined Spotify Free), radio stations. Getting it to cast video onto my TV is tricky, as you have to be quite precise in describing the (say) Youtube video in question. It would be helpful if "she" responded with "did you mean...?", or asked for further clarification (as Google does when you type a question). So far, I've been very impressed with its voice recognition, its humour, its versatility, though I can see how it could be improved. It's overall been a very enjoyable experience! (I've even checked online to see just what it is recording, at myactivity.google.com, and have warned visitors that they may be recorded; the "invasion of privacy" aspects don't worry me).
