  1. I would buy it next year if I could use Amazon Music. I don't have and want Spotify and the Rest… To use more Google Features instead of just Calendar with Alexa is very good. But I have to wait anyway. I am from Germany..

  2. I pre-ordered so still waiting on mine to come in the mail. Can't wait!!!!
    And the bases still aren't available. GRRRRRRHHHH!

  3. Dig your cinematography. I liked your vid the best among the others Ive watched on the subject. My hubs just bought one from a kind young man and Im already using it to check the weather!

  4. Seems nice, problem for me is that it will probably never work directly with Ecobee. I doubt they would ever openly integrate since Google owns Nest.
