Unsurprisingly, Google Assistant took the crown here yet again.

Over 800 questions, Google Assistant understood 100% of what it was asked.

Amazon has unveiled 21 — yes, 21 different Alexa speakers, gadgets and accessories to date, and that isn’t even counting all of the Alexa-equipped Fire tablets and Fire TV streamers, nor does it take into account third-party Alexa devices not made by Amazon.

2018 is almost over and Apple’s smart home is still way behind. There are some serious, lingering limitations with HomeKit, Siri(what a joke Siri is among iPhone users, they hate it like anything) and Apple’s overall approach to smart home hardware that should have been addressed by now. Siri has been around for almost 7 years, but it still kind of sucks. Google Assistant and Alexa continue to move forward at an quick pace while Apple’s platform still struggles to keep up with and lags far behind.

Which one should I buy Google Home vs Amazon Echo? Google Assistant or Alexa?

For now, the biggest differences crop up among the long tail of specialized knowledge questions that you’d expect a search engine to be able to answer, but not necessarily a smart speaker. Both assistants can tell you who was the last Democratic president, how far the moon or sun is from the Earth, or how to remove a stain from a skirt. But ask the difference between a gabled roof and a hip roof, when apple season ends, or how to rid your basement of spiders, and only Google will answer. Alexa gives a stumped “hmm, I’m not sure,” or, “Sorry, I don’t know that one.”

Move over Alexa, Google Home devices take the crown as the most intelligent smart speaker.

The choice keeps getting easier and clear with every test. Google Home just achieved a major victory once again. Google Home and Amazon Echo have been long fighting for smart speaker dominance and a place in your home, but it has been proven time and again with all these Digital Assistant tests that one is severely more capable than the other, and that one is Google Assistant in Google Home.
