Alexa was always sh!t in my opinion. Google assistant, has the Google search backend, better integration for YouTube/casting, plus the new "interpreter mode" is awesome, not to mention the multiple language support.

Hmmm I'm intrigued by that. I got the free Echo Dot with the PS4 purchase on Black Friday and we haven't been thrilled with it so far - we're hoping to find this GHM to be an improvement when we receive it. The Echo Dot sounds pretty great with music and is good for music and smart home devices but it's almost useless for asking questions other than the weather. I ask what seem like simple questions like "what is Walmart's return policy" or simple cooking questions and it can never answer them. We're hoping the GHM is better for questions since it apparently googles the question / answer which Echo Dot can't seem to do

They might already have Spotify premium, so its technically a pure profit if they were gonna pay that amount anyway.

I have both. Alexa is pure garbage for asking it general information lookups, but it's better for having a wider suite of home automation support. With that in mind, I have yet to buy a product that wasn't supported by both, so it might be for more obscure brands.

This is exactly what the promo is all about, give us $10 and get a mini and feel free to leave whenever you want afterward.

You are welcome to join, Spotify made sure they aren't locking your billing info just because of your family account, you only need to create a new account and get the offer.

Here is the thing, there is 0 entitlement here, they run their numbers and decided family accounts (and any other discounted/promotional accounts) doesn't deserve to get the freebie, you are free to vote with your money and cancel, play their game and get the GHM for $10 or decide the savings you already got covers the freebie and just move on.

It is. 1 nifty feature is when I wanted to call my daughter's school that she'll be sick. I just said. "hey Google, what is the phone number for "so and so elementary", it replied back the number is ex. "905-555-1234", ok, call it! Ok, calling "so and so elementary" :) I was able to leave a message in the school's attendance line and NO PHONE REQUIRED!

No way kijiji users would pay for a personal sub over a group buy on a family plan.
