Google and Amazon are the two big companies that I adore and watching them go head to head for the same market category is something to watch out for. With Smart Speakers on the rage these days Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Google Assistant are engaged in a tensed battle to dominate our homes. Amazon with a 2-year head-start is currently on its second generation of Echo devices, whereas Google has entered the market much later. But as we say, better late than never!!! Although Amazon has a huge range of products but in this article, I am only going to consider the Amazon Echo which is a direct competition to Google Home in terms of price and functionality. I am going to put them, head to head and compare them keeping in mind their Design, Voice Assistant, Smart Home capability and other basic functionalities.
Google Home vs Amazon Echo: Design
Google Home vs Amazon Echo : Voice Assistant
Google Home vs Amazon Echo: Smart Home Capability
Google Home vs Amazon Echo: Miscellaneous
Both devices have built-in features for communication. Using Echo, you can call other devices in the home or your friends over the internet which can be turned into a video chat using Echo Show. Echo also has a drop-in feature, using which you can listen-in to another Echo. Google Home, on the other hand, has a broadcast feature, which sends a recorded message to all the other speakers in your home, but it is not as useful as Amazon’s feature.
