Do not worry about compatible devices yet.Understanding and
working around Google Ecosystem took almost a year for me.

I actually only add a 3rd party device to the Google Home only last month.
That is the Wemo smart Plug.
And the recent purchase of the Mi A1 smartphone.
So be smart when you purchase your next item-if it is
-coming Apple's HomePod-then buy everything apple from now.
(devices, including iPods, iPads, MacBooks, and iPhones)
-Google Home-then it is everything Android.

Only 3 players that can provide that kind of services.
Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple Homepod.

Actually, it is not that expensive if you look at at the point of
it's integrating with the whole lot of Google ecosystem(its existing massive
library of existing service)

For me, music and services are just two parts of the smart speaker equation.
Google Play Music with the Google Cast ecosystem.
Planning routes using Google Maps
Translating using Google Translate
Draw information from your Google Calendar.
Play content on an external TV with its Chromecast
Play music through the speakers it's connected to Chromecast Audio
Google's impressive search abilities, means the speaker has a lot of information
at its disposal.

Google? Google can never be a devices selling company. Believe me not from google chrome, nexus Q, nexus phone, tablet, nexus player etc etc.. which devices from google can be last?

Google just throw out a concept then rely on the manufacturer which adopt the google environment to come out the products..

Remember when Google bought Motorola for 12.5B in 2014?
A year and a half sold Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for 2.9B.
And Larry Page acknowledged that it doesn’t make sense for
Google to manufacture phones itself and went on to say Google will
devote their energy to driving innovation across the Android ecosystem.

So it gets the full functionality in Malaysia ?

I'm planning to get the Google Home Mini, there's a sale next week nearby where I live where it will be about RM 150-180.
Which is a very good price IMO for a beginner entry to this.

What is not functioning here in Malaysia-
-No hands-free calling
-No Google Home Express Shopping
The rest is integrated with Google services as mentioned in the earlier
post.

The Ewelink server still working fine.

Actually Ewelink company only develop the App for the manufacturers to use.

Sonoff is from Itead but using the Ewelink server.
