I’m a fan of just about all things smarthome and my digital assistant of choice is Amazon Echo. However, I do like Google products too and decided to give the new Google Home a try. I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison in the areas that matter most to me and the people I talk to. To give you a better idea of how these products work, I recorded this video so you can judge for yourself:
As with most comparisons one product is going to do better than the other in certain areas. However, the thing that keeps bringing back to Amazon Echo is the fact that it not only can respond to my internet queries, but it can also control my smarthome devices in ways that Google Home just can’t (at this time). Both products will continue to get better, but Google Home has a LOT of catching up to do. Also now that Amazon has an entry level version in the Echo Dot at under $50 it’s a no brainer!
