Google Assistant - which one to use!

  • Hi Everyone!

    I want to include in my future smart mirror the ability to use it as a Google Assistant. I have a few of them in my home, but not where my mirror is going to be placed to it will be a great feature!

    However I’m somewhere stuck now. Which Google Assistant module should I use?
    MMM-AssistantMk2 or

    What I want to achive is:

    • Use as a regular Google Home device, Ok Google hotword, etc…
    • User identification (like on the regular Google Home device, so it knows whos playlist should play, whos settings should use when answering)
    • Reply via speaker and via the screen (Maybe a notification with the response)

    So which one should I use?

    Thanks for the help in advance!

  • I ask myself this exact question 😃
    What is the big difference between this two modules ?
    thnak you guys in adavance 😉

  • tried both of them but at least for me none is stable.After some hours they crash and mm needs restart.Instead i use Gassistpi project outside MM (installed at the same Rpi) and its working fine plus its has many extra features .It only lucks the visual at MM.

  • Thanks to share your experience. I Will see that.
