Choosing Between Amazon Echo and Google Home

Today more than ever, technology has become an integral part of our day-to-day lives. Two devices that are becoming increasingly popular are the Amazon Echo and Google Home. Unlike traditional speakers, these can be turned on with the sound of one’s voice, as well as play any preferred music, offer the definition of words, announce the temperature outside, order an Uber, and complete an array of other tasks.

Anyone struggling to decide between these two devices may want to consider how they stack up against each other:

  • Amazon Echo – Also known as Alexa, this device was released in 2015 and is the original smart, voice-controlled speaker. Alexa is ideal for those who love to shop on Amazon, as it allows users to order items directly from the site. Furthermore, Alexa offers more apps and games than Google Home.
  • Google Home – Avid Google users might want to choose Google Home over Amazon Echo. That’s because Google Home can be connected to multiple Google accounts, as well as use Google Search to answer any questions. Additionally, when more than one account is linked to Google Home, the device can identify users by the sound of their voice. Google Home is able to answer more complex questions than Alexa, which may be a big draw for some individuals.

Both of these devices are excellent options, depending on what each user is looking for. Additionally, they can make wonderful additions to any of our apartments near The Villages, FL.
