I used to use amazon echo dots at home. But in spite of having good wifi and broadband they kept stopping when playing music.
Given the lack of any support I changed to google home minis. We now have six home/nest minis around the house with 2 as a stereo pair.
Google play music was good but they killed it, I have been using Spotify instead.
The problem I now have is the google nest minis have become very poor.
One only responds after shouting a few times.
The most annoying thing being music stopping for no reason. Today songs only played for 20 seconds before stopping.
After I unplugged them and threw them into the garden, music streamed via my phone to a portal device worked fine.
I am ready to bin the google devices.
Does anyone have an recommendations for reliable smart speakers - preferably soundcore or anker?
