Looking at buying a couple, 1 for the living room and 1 for the kitchen on different floors of the house.

I have a harmony hub on the main TV and would like to pause / mute the TV when the phone rings without trying to grab the remote (I work from home).

The wife likes to play music (normally through you tube on her phone) in the kitchen would like to do that through the device does not have to be youtube but does need to be a free service.

Would be nice to use them as a sort of intercom between the rooms.

Not sure about the google stuff but the amazon stuff does everything you've mentioned! Music, voice operated tv, intercom and message broadcasting.

I don't really use a free one. I have Prime so get free music through that. You can upload your own songs to ibroadcast and install the iboradcast skill. Or use plex and the plex skill or pay £3.99pm for one device to have over 40millions songs.

You can use spotify on the echo/dots but you need to change the default music service to spotify :-(
