Heard about the Amazon Dot and was interested in it. That was, until we found out the Goggle Home would have more things coming out that it could do and the speaker is much bigger. Look up the difference between the Goggle Home and Amazon Dot. Google Home is rated much higher. It does cost more. With the Google Home, we also bought Chromecast. It connects to the back of our tv and brings in Netflix, when subscribed to Netflix. We have stopped Netflix, but will get it back in a few months.
