Amazon’s Virtual Aide Alexa better than rivals

Both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant have developed into excellent voice assistants. They have duelling sets of features: Alexa supports multiple wake words, for instance, while Google lets you upload your own music to its cloud.

Alexa is more configurable if you’re willing to stick to its specific syntax, while Google Assistant is easier to use, less frustrating, and more fluid. Hollering different combinations of words at Google is more likely to result in a useful response. But if you learn and memorize Alexa’s phrases, you can dig down to find more obscure information sources and more skills with big third-party brands like Lyft.

Google’s speakers generally sound better. But the 3.5mm output jack on Amazon’s models, as well as the Echo Input add-on, opens up a huge world of third-party speakers you can then Alexa-enable with little effort. Both assistants are also now available on a range of third-party speakers, including flagship products from Bose and Sonos. Full Story
