        Answer

        It looks like it doesn't work directly with Google Home, but Google Home works with IFTTT, and IFTTT works with Harmony Hub. So it would be Google Home to IFTTT, IFTTT to Harmony Hub. (You would still just say one command, but on the back end that would be the path of the command). https://support.myharmony.com/en-my/harmony-experience-with-google-home

        Yes you can turn the tv on and change the channel but can't do volume or mute functions . You have to specifically tell Alexa to turn on a channel like fox or abc not go up or down in channels.

        Sorry but no. You need to use the special remote that works directly with this hub or use the app on a smartphone/tablet.

          The Harmony Hub does come with an ir blaster that has a 2 foot cable. So, in theory you could snake the cable into your closet space and point that at your components.

          Hubs are for better device control like turning on the TV, the receiver, setting the input, turning on hue lights, adjusting thermostat, all at the touch of a button or by asking Google home or Alexa to trigger the event, however I don't think you can pause or control volume, the triggers are presets that you program ahead of time to activate multiple actions in one event.

          The Hub can connect to your remote and you can sync them up, so if you create an event on the hub it syncs the event to the remote over Wi-Fi, it also adds better connection range since it works over Wi-Fi.

          The Harmony Hub is a smart IR blaster, so it doesn't really have any hardware that charges a remote. All it has is an AC adapter for the included USB cable. You'd have to buy a charging station separately.
