Depends what you're using it for.

Kitchen/Lounge primarily for music/radio - the Sonos One is great - only slight issue is its voice recognition can play up some times so it won't respond. Sound wise, brilliant value for money.

Bedroom for basic shit - just get the Amazon Echo Dot

My friend has a google thing which he shouts ‘hey Google’ asks questions and plays music from Spotify, also has a remote gadget for playing outside. We ostensibly want this kind of arrangement..

Actually it will - you can get kettles that are compatible with Alexa and Google Home. Whether you'd want to is a moot point, but you can
