Personally, I think the sound quality of Echo is better than Google Home. We often play music from Echo because it's so easy to do and the speakers are so Industry Email List nice. Google Home felt flatter and less rich to me. But others might disagree, and this is certainly not a review of its sound quality. Another nice touch with Google Home is that if you have two, you can play Industry Email List music on both. You can also talk to one of them and tell them to send music to another. It worked pretty well in my testing, telling my Google Home upstairs to play something downstairs. You Industry Email List can also cast to Chromecast devices or devices with Chromecast built-in, although this doesn't work with my Vizio TV that supports
Chromecast. worthy competition If you're considering a home assistant, Google Home is a compelling choice. Even being brand new, it holds up well against Echo in many ways. This is especially good if you expect the idea of a device to allow you to easily ask all types of Industry Email List questions. Google Home is also $50 cheaper, $129 in the US versus $179 for Amazon Industry Email List Echo. Amazon offers the Amazon Tap for $129, which is essentially a smaller version of the Echo that has an internal battery, making it portable. The sound on it is great, but the downside is that you have to press a button to ask questions. It's not a rugged replacement for a true hands-free assistant.
There's also the Echo Dot, which is cheap at $50. It Industry Email List does the hands-free assistant thing as well as the regular Echo. But it has a small speaker which isn't ideal for listening to music, although it can be hooked up to an audio system. Echo has the advantage of being a robust device that's even smart enough to recognize that different people may be using it, so Industry Email List you can switch to access different music lists or shopping lists. It can even read books you already own, no audiobook version needed (if you don't mind a robot voice). While Google Home isn't quite as robust in some areas, there's every reason to think it will grow. This is mainly because he is already launching with a solid base.
