Two big giant sized companies are again competing for higher market share while launching the perfect home assistant. They have named it as “Google Home” and “Amazon Echo” which will be having variety of features. They have been equipped with wireless speakers which take your command through the words identification and helps you performing the daily tasks at home in more easy way. Let’s discuss it in the depth and determine which one is better choice?
Design factor is very important while deciding which better choice as per your home structure is. Mostly people will place it in the middle of house considering its range. The worth mentioning feature here is that the design of both devices is compact, looks solid and easily movable.
Amazon Echo looks like small thermos in the black color. It is specially designed in order to receiving the commands properly, though manufacturers not considered much about its outlook whether or not it should be having sleek design. As far as Google Home is concerned, It looks like an air freshener and offers little customization to the users. You have an option of swap its speaker grills available in different colors. You can place it anywhere middle or corner in the home, if you have small house.
Audio Quality and Accuracy
Home Assistant is such a product which all efficiency is depended upon the Audio Quality and Accuracy in order to achieve its basic purpose. Amazon Echo offers better sound quality and clear bass while answering the questions. In the contrary, Google Home features poor sound quality and high pitch for no any good use. In the category of Audio Quality, Amazon Echo surely wins here.
As far as Accuracy is concerned, both devices are good at voice recognition and answer the queries back correctly. There is no point if accuracy is compromised by the two big brands in the product like Home Assistant. “Google Home” and “Amazon Echo” both can recognize the voice and answer back even there is a noise in the background and you are couple of meters away from the device.
Intelligence and Third Party Apps
The question is what makes the Home Assistant an intelligent device, the answer is how it interacts with the users, capable enough of answering back their variety of questions and performs wide range of functions on the request of user again. “Google Home” wins to design a more intelligent design comparing to “Amazon Echo”. Google Home has continuously been updated from Google Search engine and everybody knows Google knows everything. It can also be directly connected to the other services of Google including Gmail, Google Calendar and Android Play Store.
In the contrary, Amazon Echo is enjoying a competitive advantage with the support of third-party apps because it debuted one year before Google Home. Amazon Echo can be connected to several fast food third party apps to place an online order and receive home delivery. Using these apps helps you preparing notes and also checking the credit balance. Up till now, Google has not been supported by several third party apps.
Both are big and highly recognized brands which designed its Smart Speakers to assist you in daily home activities and tasks which you perform in routine. Google Home is having all those features in better way which you need most from any Home Assistant including its advanced AI, beautiful outlook and will surely be enjoying great support by third party apps in future too. The most important decision factor is pricing and here “Google Home” again wins, it is available at the price of $129 and Amazon Echo is priced at around $180.
