I am currently using FHEM, but I recently got an amazon echo dot and a google home.
I would love to integrate them into my HA-system, so if openhab 2 supports google home (if possible without IFTTT as an intermediary) that would be a reason to change to openhab for me.
Sorry if this question is already answered somewhere, I could not find it, but as I do not use openhab yet I might be looking in the wrong places.
There are people who have successfully integrated with Echo.

Set light colors individually, by room or group
Control light dimmer levels individually, by room or group
Set thermostat target temperatures

Two is that there is no wake word, you just say "Turn lights ON" or "Set Thermostat to 70".
Google Home has a public API so I imagine it will not be long before there is a binding. But given it has only been out for a month or so there is nothing available yet.
