    I am doing that now but with our front door. "Hey Google, who's at the front door?" and the feed will show up on the TV of whichever room I am in. I want the Home Hub so I can have it automated so whenever anyone walks up to door they show up on the Hub screen.

    I wish this stuff was around when our kids were younger for the baby monitor aspect, perfect use case!
    How did you do this?? With ring?
    If the river was whisky, and I was a duck.
    I would swim to the bottom, and never come up.
    But the river isn't whisky, and I'm not a duck.
    So give me the whisky, and shut the hell up.

    Well it's all setup. After 30 mins of usage.

    Pros
    - Screen is awesome
    - Sound is slightly better than the Home
    - Video calling worked flawlessly
    - August lock worked great with locking and unlocking
    - having an actual screen for timer, reminder and stuff is awesome
    - Looks super slick on the kitchen counter

    Cons
    - Not fully compatible with my August Door Cam. It just says something is knocking and does show the video feed
    - My Samsung Smartcams are not compatible so can't direct live feed... going to be expensive switching everything to Nest Cam
    - Had some software issues already with casting between youtube and spotify to my Chromecast/TV
    - Spotify on it is full function. It lets me select a playlist, but won't actually show what's in the playlist, so I have to just click 'skip' over and over again to see what the next song is. I know this is the same as the Home but w/ the screen it would've been nice to be able to see the playlist.

    Anybody using the Pixel stand and getting unreliable fast charging? It's totally hit or miss with me regardless of what percentage my battery is at. For example earlier today I was at about 80% and wanted to top it up before heading to work. Threw it on the Pixel stand and it charged rapidly. Just got home and phone was about 45%. Throw it on the Pixel stand and it's "charging slowly". It'll charge fast with the USB-C every time.

    Trying to now get Telus to send me a new phone to replace my Pixel 3, have to get them to approve an exception since it might be over their 30 days return/replacement policy by 7 days. The other option would be to send the phone to Google, but that would mean I without a phone till they get it and send me a new one. Might be the option to go with if Telus doesn't grant the exception to sending me a replacement and sending my old one back after. Hopefully the hardware replacement is better as I don't want to have them just to fix the current one I have since it should be brand new.
    I don't think it's a hardware issue. I read online it might be a problem with the phone determining signal strength. This phone has the worst call quality ever imo and a couple people I know are having the same problem. I'm going to switch to S10 if google can't fix it.

    It's getting some attention now and there is a big thread of people having the same issue here.

    The stand doesn’t actually fast charge, it maxes out at 10W which is less than half the speed at which the phone can charge at (about 22W). Charging speed also depends on battery temperature and what percentage it’s at when you start charging it. I know at least with the wall charger it’s not going full blast by the time it’s at 80%, but since the stand has such a low power cap you’d think it would use 10W almost the whole time. When it’s close to full it will scale back again.

    As for call quality I’m having then opposite experience as some, it’s probably the best of any phone I’ve ever owned ( 3XL). Same for the speaker phone. Now that I’m also using the phone for work, I have taken literally hundreds of calls with it. As an added bonus I also get LTE reception on the 4th level of my parkade which I did not get with my Pixel 2XL or iPhone 8 haha.

    My pixel 3 went flying yesterday and landed flat screen side down on tile floor. The ESR screen protector was chipped on 3 corners and 2 cracks formed. Luckily the ESR screen protector came in a 2-pack. I'm beginning to re-think going sans case.

    Picked up a regular pixel 3 recently. I've been using iPhone for years so I'm a little behind on transitioning to the Android ecosystem. A few things:

    What's the fastest way to transfer iCloud keychain data to Chrome to autofill my passwords?

    Are there any cases similar to the silk iPhone cases that hold a few cards? Closest I can find is this one:

    Pixel 3 Case,Two-Tone Vintage Insert Card Genuine Leather Back Cover for Google Pixel 3 (Black) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07KLNSPZF/..._DkwkCb0EM488X


    I'm loving it so far but I'm still adjusting. Any other tips for those who switched over recently?
