I grew up being told you could only take a joke so far, because I wasn't the cool brother, but that's actually pretty funny.

GRcade also taught me this.

Is that from the offer in September or are they running it again?

Aye it's from that September offer, thought that was it when they ran out then but just got an email earlier saying mine was available to claim.

They are decent yeah and surprisingly good for playing music on a whim or asking for weather/news bulletins etc. The reminder functionality also works extremely well when you know you're going to forget to remind yourself not to forget something :shifty:

And it's easy to add appointments to a calendar you will actually use (google cal).

"Set a timer for 10 minutes" works just fine as well. It also supports continuous conversation so you can do something like "Set a timer for ten minutes and play BBC radio 6". If you enable continuation in the Google home app you can correct things it gets wrong the first time by just continuing the talk, generally I say "scratch that" or "change X" after the confirmation.

It also plays relaxing sounds. Try "play relaxing forest/sea/rain sounds", maybe there are some others. I've had it on for hours at times, it's a good ambient speaker.

You can even ask it to play random animal sounds for no particular reason. :toot:

You can even just about make the CX out.

Wish I'd taken a shot of the Predator cover. The colour on it is so off it looks like a low effort pirate photocopy cover.
