Start Streaming Music, Receiving Your Daily News, And So Much More With Your Smart Voice Assistant Speaker
If you have just purchased a smart speaker, you would definitely be trying it out by different voice commands. Amazon and Google are leading the smart speaker market and were highly marketed products this holiday season. They were also quite popular gifts!
The setup for both Google Home and Amazon Echo is similar and quite easy. You will have to sign-in to get access to YouTube or Amazon shopping. Google has YouTube Music, Spotify, Google Play Music, and Pandora while Amazon offers Spotify, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Amazon Music, and TuneIn.
Speaking of music, one cool new command for Alexa is asking it to "Play music for me." It acts as DJ by going through your music history to make suggestions and play automated playlists.
If you want to listen to the news, you need to first select the provider. For example, Amazon offers CBS, CNET, BBC, and USA TODAY. With Google, you can peruse CNN, NPR, New York Times, Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, and USA TODAY.
Skills are special apps that you will have to download to allow the speaker to do specific tasks. Amazon has more than 50,000 of them for you to choose from. Google Assistant lets you choose the gender of the virtual assistant, its accent, and so much more. It also allows you to create customized Routines.
