I just got a google home after a coincidental trip to the shop on the morning it was released in the UK. Seeing the smartthings integration, multiroom syncing with chromecast audio I thought it would be a sonos / echo dot killer.
For starters this dinky thing can’t compare to a play1 for size and and quality of sound. It’s fine for background though. I’d rather have a different speaker maybe Bose and use a chromecast with the aux input.
The main issue is playback control. How can I at least see status and playback control via smartthings / action tiles? With sonos this was native, but selecting music wasn’t easy outside the sonos app. Now selecting music is easy but I can’t integrate “good night” to stop all chromecast/homes from playing.
