My wife is always hunting for her iPad so she can ask Siri a question (or three). I bought a Google Home mini and set it up today in the kitchen. Hope she finds it as useful as I do

At the least it may make finding her iPad easier!

Semi-related, you can force a Home (mini, regular, whatever) to play music on a separate Chromecast device. We have our mini on the fridge and a speaker set with Chromecast Audio on top of the cupboards so anytime we request music, to goes to the nice speakers instead of playing on the mini. Seems like you could save a lot of money this way.

sometimes i'll tell the mini "play [artist] from my google play library" and it'll give me a response of "that's not available, here's a station" or that it's only available to subscribers. i can pick up my phone and cast it to the mini, but if i'm washing dishes i just want to be able to dictate what i want. any suggestions?

You may be able to dictate it to play an album.

edit: also see if you can get it to play the top songs of [artist]

I only have the television chromecast. It's not a bad option though
