Well in your bolded reply you said "of course they do" on my question "If you think that Google still needs a GHM to make money of us (as far as the privacy violation goes) ".
And my argument remains, no they don't, if you have the least understanding of the depth of data Google "already" has on us (without that "voice command log") you would know that even if they have 0 smartspeakers out there their profiling quality wouldn't take the slightest hit.

No you didn't, who is making up stuff now "spotify-free-google-home-mini-spotify-p ... #p30797663"
Regardless, even assuming you did, so if I am to bring up your posting history now I would see you making the same argument on every single smartphone thread posted in RFD ?!
Obviously Google doesn't need to do this to make money but they want to make more money. What a silly post you even made to say they need to.

Your link doesn't work. But yes obviously phones are just as bad but are a necessity and the average person should atleast know what that this is going on. People here don't seem to understand that your data is being stolen and used. As long as it's free they don't care.

Asking for a friend, is this deal still legit, anyone ordered today to confirm? I know there were lots of drama happened earlier like unable to redeem or cancellation etc.. Is it still recommended to get one?

I and my wife signed up on April 9 and ordered charcoal right after receiving the code. My wife received her on April 10 and I got mine on April 11. Will keep spotify for a month and cancel 5 days before expiry date. Thanks OP!

You can cancel now and still keep premium. Cancelling just doesn't auto renew at the end.

If you cancel now you'll still have Spotify for the rest of the month, they cut it off after the date you've paid until, not the date you cancel

Do you really have such a hard time making your point "respectfully"?!

The "silly" point that I was making which you failed to see, again, the gains in this promo won't come from mining "voice command logs" (this isn't Amazon, people are giving away their data to Google for free on daily bases, way higher quality than they will ever get from smartspeakers voice logs), the money will come from marketshares and footing (vs. amazon smartspeakers) and value-added services.
But yes obviously phones are just as bad but are a necessity and the average person should atleast know what that this is going on.
Ah ok, so you don't go on every smartphone thread on RFD making that "privacy" argument then. Thanks for confirming ;)

Ordered May 10th, 10am - just received confirmation email and ordered from Google; got an ETA of May 23rd-24th (B.C.).

Could order Chalk immediately - the only other option was Charcoal which was flagged "coming soon".

I ordered super late on the 10th. Basically at midnight. No code for me yet. Hopefully now that people who ordered earlier in the day are getting them, I will see my code soon!
