    This thing actually looks pretty good. I wasn't convinced by the Amazon show (mainly because i just haven't bought into echo ecosystem), but this looks way more useful.

    I couldn't verify your voice, so I can't set any reminders. You can either try again, or verify your Voice Match settings in the Google Home App.

    Thank you at least for not asking to call someone but just showing the screen! That would screw me even more 😂

    As usual, you're a fuqtard for not taking five minutes in post to mute the "Hey Google" command. Trolling the audience's devices is so Q2 2017.

    I always have to mute my Google Home before watching pretty much any video from The Verge. You guys should edit the "hey, Google" out lol — great review though.

    If it had a built-in battery (maybe last for an hour or few) - that'd be awesome!
