I purchased one of these for my mum.
I was so impressed I got one for my self.

* its easier than I thought to pair up a wireless plug and get google to turn it on or off via voice commands.

If i get time i will describe how to do this.
For now enjoy the following list of commands.

--

OK GOOGLE
STOP / PAUSE / PLAY / CONTINUE / SAY AGAIN

WHAT IS MY NAME
TELL ME ABOUT MY DAY
WHAT TIME IS IT
WHAT IS THE WEATHER TOMORROW
WHAT IS THE TELEPHONE NUMBER FOR : Arrowe Park Hospital
LETS PLAY A GAME
BARK LIKE A DOG
PLAY THE SOUND OF RAIN / THUNDER /BIRDS
WHAT IS THE LATEST FOOTBALL SCORE FOR TRANMERE ROVERS
WHAT TIME DOES THE SUN SET
WHAT IS THE TEMPRATURE TODAY
WHAT ARE MY APPOINTMENTS.

SET A TIMER : Asks How Long -
CANCEL TIMER : (The Timer sounds nice and loud on Mini).

SET AN ALARM FOR 5 MINUETS
WHEN IS MY NEXT ALARM? / CANCEL ALARM
SET AN ALARM FOR 6PM TODAY / TOMORROW

A reminder is not as loud as a Alarm so don't use for Turing off the oven use a TIMER instead. A reminder would also be sent to your phone.

A reminder is not saved in your calendar. Use Add to Calendar.
SET A REMINDER (Wait / Will ask Time / what its is)
Small notice to google MINI,
Notice sent / on PHONE
CANCEL REMINDER
---
PLAY MUSIC BY : Susan Boyle many songs.
PLAY : Someone to watch over me BY Susan Boyle 1 song .
PLAY RELAXING MUSIC
PLAY RADIO CITY FM
STOP MUSIC IN 20 MINS
---
ADD TO MY SHOPPTING LIST : Beans
WHATS ON MY SHOPPING LIST
----
REMEMBER : My car keys are in the top draw.
WHERE IS : My car keys ('is' seems to be the KEY word to get this working.).
FORGET : My Car Keys
---
ADD TO CALENDAR / What's the title : when is the event : what time : Save it ?
ADD TO CALENDAR / Doctors Appointment : 9am : 5th January.

----
There are so many more you can do.

How to set up a google mini ?

Following the instructions.
1. Download google home to your phone apple & android.
2. Launch the app.
3. Train you voice in seconds.
4. Thats it....

To play music via google play or spotify.
Update the settings in the Google Home App and select the Music default.

To control lights or sockets via google mini.
Purchase a compatible plug or similar. These can be purchased from e-bay for about £10 each.

The wireless plug will come with an app, you use the app to connect to the plug via wireless connection using your home wifi to connect and control. Enter you home wifi into the plug app. Once that's done you can then add the device vial the Home app on your phone, and then say "Google Lights off" or this year is was "OK GOOGLE Christmas tree lights ON" and off lol.

Be sure you have a compatible brand.

Enjoy.

There's loads of easter eggs as well eg

ENTERTAIN ME

Same as the Google Allo/Assistance apps for smartphones

You can also play music from YouTube on a tablet once you have paired them up. Don't forget that every command you give it leaves it on your phone. You will have to go to google home on your phone and check My activity.

Just another quick one, my grandchildren had a great time asking it to tell them a
joke. That last one should have read play YouTube music from a tablet as an extra speaker.
