A few years ago Amazon has released their home speaker Echo, and then they followed up with newer and more enhanced models, like the Echo Dot and Tap. Their line of speaker line was a massive success, and seeing that, Google decided to give Amazon some competition and released their Google Home. Black Friday is getting closer day by day and these two gadgets are all the rage right now and they will go head to head during the Black Friday deals. Right now we are going to compare them both so the readers can get an idea of which fits their needs the most.
Amazon Alexa and Google Home are going to be a great addition to anyone’s house since they can control smart home products like the garage door or light, smartphone and many more. The smart speaker is voice activated, and it can do about everything from answering silly questions to playing a song. The user can use the home speaker to set up an alarm or a reminder and if he wants to know any additional information he can just say the “wake” word and then ask the smart speaker.
These devices go along really perfectly with other smart home gadgets, and if you own more smart home products you can sync them up and control them only by voice commands issued to Amazon Alexa or Google Home. The smart speakers are permanently on and they get activated if they hear the “wake” word. For Amazon Alexa the wake word is Alexa and for Google is “Okay, Google”. The Amazon speaker glows blue when it’s awaken and Google Home activates its LED lights when its awaken.
The deciding feature to make you buy one of them is of course going to be the price it sports. We still have to wait for Black Friday offers to pop-up before we can make any decision, but we should expect at least $10 to $40 dollars cut off their initial price. The Google Home is priced at $129 right now and Amazon’s Echo Dot is priced only $41.67 and its contains the bundle of six.
