Bought a Google mini last diwali. Don't think I've used It more than 20 times. :P

 

 

Man I've had mine for two days and I have used it more than 20 times lol. 

Are you not using any other smart appliances with it?

I have my TV, AC, a smart lamp and speaker connected with it. But I think it's just a matter of habit. Forget to speak the commands, and almost invariably use the remote.

You know your smartphone can also do this right?

Not supporting this peak post-industrial meme device but still.

 

This alexa, google copy alexa, apple copy alexa, all these devices are literally useless, an answer for a question that doesn't exist.

Agreed. My Alexa echo plus speaker is catching dust. It does't pick up my local language of Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Always plays some old English songs. It has issues being used as bluetooth speaker with windows too. .

 

Plus now I get more ads about things I speak of than ever before.

I don't use it as bluetooth speaker. My family primarily speaks English so it works for now.

When I need music, I say the name of the song as we listen to mostly instrumental songs, or popular stuff.

 

Plus, the primary concern was to control the lights in our home.

These smart bulbs that are available these days like the Wipro one, how bright are they really? I have normal 9W LED bulbs at home, will the smart ones match it?

Yeah. The 9w to 9w match. 

 

We generally use 15w+, and thus not a fan of the smart bulbs. Have some 9w Wipros lying around since nobody wants it in their room. :P

Yes, I agree about the lights though. Iv named 3 lights at home and its fun to call lights by name.

 

My bathroom light is called Legolas:dance:
