1. Which has more knowledge? Google Home vs Amazon Echo

I had analyzed the both the products

Google Home and Amazon Echo.

Note: “It’s my own opinion”

Google Home Is More Knowledgeable than Amazon Echo

As we tried up with multiple questions,

With both the products.

Ex: When I asked Google Home

Question: Hey Google. How long will it take me to get MG Road?

Answer: With light traffic, it will take 39min to drive to MG Road, you can see the road on your phone.

The same question to Amazon Echo.

Question: Alexa. How long will it take me to get MG Road?

Answer: Your Current location is 9.83 miles & 15.8km from MG Road. “As I don’t know your speed and I cant tell you, how long will it take.”

This is one of the weird Answer from Amazon Echo.

I never expect this answer from Amazon Echo.


Google Home can tell the local stores information.


Amazon Echo said, “Sorry, I don’t know the answer to your question.”

In some areas,

Alexa Echo is better than Google home in few areas

Ex: Question: Alexa. How many movies has Tom Hanks been in?

Where Alexa has come up with all answers 83 films.

Where the Google Home has come up with few answers.

One Advantage with Google Home is that it remembers the last asked question.

Where, if you ask

“Who played Woody in Toy Story?”

It said, Tom Hanks.

Next Question

How old is he?

It said his age. without repeating his name.

But Alexa Echo said “Sorry”.

Overall knowledge graph.

Alexa Echo knows something, but Goole home knows more.

Found interesting right?

Hold on,

Don’t judge soon.

2. Which device is better for Smarthome users Google Home or Google Mini? Google Home vs Amazon Echo

As Passing each day,

Our Homes are Automated with the smarthome technology,

Here Amazon Echo wins in the race.

Where Amazon Echo has broad support to the top players of smartphone providers,

Including Philips, Belkin, Nest, SmartThings, Insteon, Wink, etc.


Google Home restricted to limited smarthome devices,


These both devices have integrated with IFTTT.

Google Home has only supported to Top Players.

So, Amazon Echo is open to all smarthome devices.

If you’re using Smarthome technology,

Then Amazon Echo is the right option.

Note: It’s only my opinion.

3. Both Have Great Tastes In Music Google Home vs Amazon Echo

These both devices use their own respective players,

Amazon Echo uses Amazon’s prime music,

Whereas Google uses Google play music.

So in terms of music, both products are awesome.

4. Google Home Has Slightly Better Physical Controls Google Home vs Amazon Echo

If I speak in terms of physical controls,

Google Home wins in the race.


Echo’s physical controls include Volume button, Mute, Activate the Alexa or Cancel Alexa.

In Google Home, the complete top surface is touchscreen.

It’s very easy to operate,

If you are a smartphone addict.


What I wanna say is,

Go for Google Home.
