Signed up today and got the email for Google Home Mini almost immediately. Ordered the Charcoal one and estimated delivery is May14-15.

Thanks OP!
Were there any other colours in stock today?

It's funny seeing all these Home Minis showing up on Kijiji with guys thinking they can get $70-80 for them.
I used to be indecisive. Now i'm not so sure.

Considering all the Christmas deals any new one being sold on kijiji or craigslist should be $30-40 tops and $40 is lenient

I ordered the service Friday night and received the GHM email this morning.

All done now and it said “expected delivery 28-29 May”.

So ... I bought an Amazon Echo since it had better smart home integration.

Then I switched from Google Play Music to Spotify since only Spotify works with the Echo.

Now Spotify gives me a Google Home Mini and I can cancel Spotify switch back to Google Play Music since it handles explicit content much better!
I own both a mini and an echo dot and lately I've actually found the google to be more reliable with my smart devices.
I have a couple smart plugs so far to control a TV and also a light.

Recently the echo dot has been a real pain. I sometimes have to ask it more than once to turn on/off the light because the first time it will just say "that device isnt responding" or something like that. Whereas the google mini never gives me that issue.

Another thing I found is if I say "alexa, is the tv on?" she says "that device doesn't support that". But if I ask my google mini, it says "the tv is not on" (or vice versa). So it DOES support that. I've tried this with 2 different smart plug brands and it always works with google but not with the alexa (the "is it on" question).

I do think Amazon has google beat when it comes to the wake word though. On Amazon you can use alexa or change it to echo or computer.I find those roll off the tongue much better than saying "hey google" every time. Hopefully Google eventually allows us to change the wake word.

No tracking.

We are still in April so I am not that worrying yet.

Happy Monday!

I assume the shipping estimate is based on how far you are near their warehouse. :)

I ordered the same time and it said May 28-29.
