well, apart from the youtube music issue, I have had no problems and/or 
complaints with the google home max. I also really love it's big, loud, full 
range sound.

Hi Simon,

I personally prefer the Alexa. I have 2 of them now, an Echo 2nd
Generation, and a 3rd Generation Echo Dot. I love how Alexa works and
just works once it's all set up. I even have Skype set up on it, along
with Spotify, Next Bus and so on.

Cheers.
Lewis.
