Google has a winner with Google Home, for those who want a hands-free assistant that can answer a wide range of questions that arise during daily home activities. It easily Phone Number List surpasses what Amazon Echo can do. Google Home - which is shipping to consumers this week - is Google's answer to the Amazon Echo, released two years ago. Both are hands-free, voice-activated devices designed to be placed in a home and capable of playing music, providing information, controlling devices and generally serving as a full-featured assistant. Wizards and asking for answers Part of Phone Number List that help is answering questions people might have. Here, Google Home outperforms Amazon Echo because its built-in “Google Assistant” is smarter than the Echo's “Alexa” assistant.

It's in my kitchen, next to my Amazon Echo. I asked both questions, as did my family, because they are part of our daily routine. The videos below illustrate this. In some of them, you will hear me asking the same question to Phone Number List both devices almost at the same time. If you do it right, you can get “side-by-side” responses. This may disrupt the device requested first. In all the side-by-side examples I show, I also tested each device separately to make sure they weren't confused.

For example, Alexa couldn't answer "Can guinea pigs eat grapes?" while Google Home gave a solid answer: This question is a perfect example of how Google Home shines for out-of-the-box questions. This came to Phone Number List mind because my guinea pig started chirping when I walked into the kitchen wanting a treat. I opened the refrigerator, saw grapes and wondered if they were okay. In fact, I already knew they were fine from previous experience.
