Will Apple, Google, Or Amazon Win The Smart Speaker Race?
HomePod by Apple is at the top of its game but is quite unable to keep up with its competitors. In this era of technology, things are not like before. Today’s speakers also work as smart assistants. Home by Google and Echo by Amazon are among Apple’s competitors.
Though the HomePod easily has the best sound, it is not as smart as it could be.
Google’s Home does the best in the intelligence test followed closely by Echo! The test questions ranged from traffic information and weather reports to some abstract questions such as why do cats meow?! From obeying commands like play music to set up an appointment or set up an alarm, all the systems do this to perfection. Unfortunately, the HomePod is able to stream only from Apple Music.
Echo seems to be the most compatible. Being able to connect to over 4,000 devices gives it a considerable edge. The HomePod works only with iOS devices.
Of the three big smart speakers on the market, Amazon Echo clearly has the biggest brains. Google Home comes in a close second. Sure, it matched Echo in the intelligence test, but it just isn’t compatible with as many devices to beat out Amazon’s offering.
