Are you thinking about purchasing a smart speaker for you home? The best ones available in the market today are Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple HomePod. Read on to know which might be the best one for you.
· Amazon Echo – All things considered, Amazon Echo, which pioneered the entire category, remains the best smart speaker in this arena. It supports a growing number of smart home devices including Honeywell and Nest Smart Thermostats, LIFX smart light and Philips Hue bulbs and even the Samsung SmartThings platform that extends to even more devices.
· Google Home – Google Home come in a close second and is perfect for Chromecast owners and inquisitive types. Because it is integrated into Google’s search engine, it has a bigger brainpower than the Amazon Echo and knows a bit more about the world. It connects to fewer devices than the Echo but sounds slightly better. Experts believe that Home is ahead of Echo in terms of catching up to the market leader. In less than a year’s time, the Google Home has learned quite a few tricks including allowing its users to call anyone and recognising difference users.
· Apple HomePod – Apple HomePod packs a pretty serious seven beam-forming tweeters and a four-inch upward-facing woofer that focuses on providing the best audio experience. It is also packed with smart home functionality in the form of Apple’s HomeKit platform.
