Amazon Echo vs Google Home: Which should you buy? Well, as of November 8, 2017 the answer is actually surprisingly clear. Alexa Echo, and by a long shot. The main reason is simply because it currently has a lot more apps and thus has a lot more functionality. However, depending on your specific needs, you might find Google Home to be a better fit. No worries, in this article, we will walk you through the benefits and problems when choosing one versus the other into extreme detail as briefly as possible.
Should you buy the Amazon Echo?
Yes. It can connect to everything that Google Home can connect to, and much, much more. Why and how is this possible? This is largely because this product came out before Google Home did, and thus, a significant number of developers and companies rushed to gain the benefits and exposure of this revolutionary type of product.
Amazon’s Echo product lineup has had a great headstart, but alas, a true competitor rises from the smoke. It’s a formidable foe: The Google Home lineup. Clearly, a massive a serious product comparison is needed for everyone interested in converting their house into a Smart Home.
There are Six Products out that you’ll want to choose from. The Amazon Echo Plus, Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, Google Home, Google Home Max, and Google Home Mini.
Let’s focus on the main differences between the four products, as that’s what your most interested in. We’ll eventually get into the similarities, but we can tell you right now: in terms of pure technical abilities, often called Skills, they are almost identical. In fact, the Amazon Echo and Echo dot have slightly more Skills as they have been around longer, and thus, developers from companies around the world have had more of an opportunity to create them. This gap will surely close as time goes on.
