Why Google Home is Winner in Long Run?
After the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC17) there are tons of news around on Apple’s HomePod. It’s features already challenging the Game Changer Devices like Alexa, EchoBot and obviously the Google Home. While discussing this to some gadgets freaks and gurus. I felt like Google Home (GH) is going to be the ultimate winner in a long run.
Don’t believe me. Just explore the features below to make yourself comfortable with what am trying to say.
The Home offers the most mutability, offering a multitude of colored bases to allow you to customize the look of your speaker. Although Homepod provides slightly better hardware than the Google Home, still when it comes to the price.. Google Home worth it.
Google Home has been priced at $129 (£129 / AU$170), which significantly surpasses it’s close rivals. Thus, again it’s kind of win-win situation.
Chromecast and Google Home
If you’ve got a Chromecast audio then it’s kind of plus point for you because with it.. you can simply ask Google Home to play music through the speakers it’s connected to. Meanwhile, the Echo is limited to playing music on its own speaker, and the Echo Dot can only be connected to a single speaker at a time through either Bluetooth or a wired 3.5mm connection.
Videos / Streaming Services
Google Home does, however, have the advantage of integrating with Chromecast in a video sense. You can easily play shows from Netflix, YouTube and other supported apps using just your voice.
Google Home’s Integration with Google Services
Additionally, GH integrates with a number of Google’s other services, which ranges from planning routes using Google Maps to translating using Google Translate. It will also draw from your Google Calendar and sync as per you.
Google Home is slightly more clever, performance oriented than it’s other arch rivals. It will recognize different users by the sound of their voice alone.
You’ll need to train the speaker to recognize each person’s voice by saying your own familiar phrase- “OK Google” or “Hey Google” a few times, but after that point, you shouldn’t have to worry about anything.
Google Assistant – Power Behind the Home
Google Assistant, the software powering Google Home, is new and loaded with new features. In addition to that, the technology is based on the work Google has already put into its Google Now voice search functionality.
This prior research, in addition to Google’s impressive search abilities, means the speaker has a lot of information at its disposal. Google Home can, for example, correctly guess a song that’s described in the vaguest of terms.
