    All right let’s hear it! Team Google, or Amazon? Or maybe Siri?! Let me know your pick??

  2. كل شيء عن Everything about mi says:

    I like Amazon but I like the Google home music transfer and scheduled commands I wish Amazon well add it

  3. Dan Stephenson says:

    What really confuses me is that Alexa works with my GSuite account, but Google Assistant is missing many features.

  4. RiceEater483 says:

    I started out all Google but finally had to start using Alexa because Google doesn’t support motion and contact sensors for routines. Disappointing on Google’s part, I hope they finally get around to that at some point. I’ll still mainly try to stick with Google if I can but have no issue anymore buying something that only supports Alexa from now on.

    Google assistant is taking a nosedive as well as many other google services.

    For example home automation using my phone with a lock screen is now useless. When I say “ok google turn on the lights” it will ask me to unlock my phone which defeats the purpose of convenience when it is quicker to hit the light switch with soapy hands.

    I’ve also found the accuracy of GA detecting what I’m saying is declining. This is probably from google just collecting everything and anything and feeding it to their “AI” to learn. As the saying goes, garbage in = garbage out.

    Those “helpful” hints drive us nuts. Especially when it says something like “did you know you can ask me the weather” when I ask it the weather every single day. Or “did you know you can ask me to set a timer when you’re washing your hands?”
    If they’re not going to give us an option to turn off the hints, they at least need for it to be smart to enough to know not to tell us how to do stuff we already do.

    Team Google w/ a Nest Hello, Nest Secure (RIP), Nest Hub, Nest Hub Max, Google Home, 3 Mini’s, and two chromecasts. Integrate’s better with my Samsung S10+

  8. Joe says:

    Amazon stole tips from the drivers… That alone makes me not want to get their device….

  9. guke09 says:

    My wife and I are building a home. We are wanting window and door sensors to notify us of any opened doors or windows because we have children in the home. We have purchased a Google Nest hub etc. I saw where google has discontinued their security system. Is there any third party sensors that would work with Google Nest? Or just Google?

  10. Joe Ruffolo says:

    In Canada, the simple fact is – Amazon Alexa did not support Canadian customers when it was released – the unnerving thing for Canadians was that although Amazon would not sell the Alexa to you, they did make money on selling Alexa accessories (cosmetic) to Canadians. Google actually supported Canada first and that is the main reason I went with Google (my small way at getting back at Amazon is that I have never switched from Google Home as my home automation solution). I see that Google still outsells Amazon in Canada, even to this day

    Why didn’t you include Siri in the review? Lots of apple users out there.
