We have a number of Google Home devices, and this was our first foray into the Alexa world. Very impressed with the design. Love the home hub for smart devices built in. Alexa however, is a little dim. She had no idea where I lived, until I told her twice (via the almost hidden app settings) that I did not live in Queen Anne, Washington State. I may soon though, as the weather there sounds phenomenal!! Anyway, finally able to reconfigure, and it is starting to get better.
