Smart speakers have oddly become something that many people want and need in their household. Before these hit the market, you most likely didn’t even know you needed such a device, but boy are they useful. Today we’re comparing the top three smart speakers on the market, namely the Google Home, the Apple HomePod and the Amazon Echo.
As far as design goes, the Google Home speaker and the Apple HomePod are two peas in a pod (pun intended). The Amazon Echo is taller, and has a few LEDs on it, so it looks a bit different. However, design is not why you’re buying it for. Let’s take a look at the price and features of these three smart speakers.
While Amazon Echo is certainly not cheap at its 50 dollar price tag for the Echo Dot, it’s the cheapest one of the three. The Google Home costs as much 129 dollars, while the Apple HomePod is even more expensive. However, it’s important to note that the Amazon Echo is the budget device of the Echo family, so more expensive ones are available too. But Google and Apple don’t offer a budget option at all.
As far as features go, it depends on what you’re looking for. Google and Apple have an entire library of features that the Echo lacks but, at the end of the day, Amazon Echo does come with Prime music and Spotify. The Echo is also much more functional than its rivals, but it also has fewer features, so it all boils down to what you actually need.
All three speakers are worthy choices. I personally would go for the Amazon Echo Dot. What about you? Which one would you choose out of the three? Let us know in the comment section below.
