Google Home = Amazon's device + Sonos ?

Is this the end of Sonos ?

How will it integrate with BLGW ?

  • Google Cast allows you to control other speakers from your house with little setup.

  • You can send audio through Google cast from your Android device.

  • You can play all the usual content from your favorite music services.

  • The speaker will fill the home with music, with rich bass and good highs.

  • Google Home will build on those exerience.

  • Chromecast has been one of the hottest selling products since it launched.

This thread could be useful in the Home Automation forum. In the Home Automation forum we've been discussing the uses of Amazon Echo and its integration with BLGW. BLGW currently integrates with Amazon Echo using IFTTT. I could see this integration being just as easy to implement with Google Home.

I purchased the Amazon Echo a few months ago and I really like it.  After watching the Google Home video, I was surprised and really impressed.  I especially liked the part where Google home was asked to send a google photo to the nearest TV.

LG electronics who will be making TVs for Bang and Olufsen is one of many partners for Google, Amazon, and Apple.  This is more than just about home automation.  I would like to have more of this in the General Forum.

@Jeff I have found the home automation thread and BLGW inspiring ! I just wish I had the capacity to indulge myself in experiments

Google Home: 'this is all driven by an always-listening voice interface.'

Thank you - not in my home!

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Ha Ha! 

Big Brother has arrived and most of us are happily inviting him into our homes. Soon we will be receiving security force visits via Google when the system hears something non PC  being discussed.

This was the part that impressed me most as well (plus the one about changing reservations, I guess there's an app integration for that one?).

All in all I'm impressed, this is something that I would certainly want B&O to integrate (well) with BLGW Big Smile

Looking forward to hearing more about it and any possible integration soon...

I recently got a BLGW and am having a lot of fun already (to my wife's dismay now she has overlays appearing on the TV all the time, music stopping and starting, and lights going on and off Stick out tongue). It's a lot of fun and I'm keeping a diary of sorts in the Home Automation forum.

Has anyone purchased a Google Home ?

I purchased one today and it doesn't yet work with Deezer in Australia - has anyone else been successful?

I have also been able to create speaker groups to play music on my various devices
