Google Home vs. Amazon Echo - Head To Head Battle
Amazon and Google are massive tech giants, for vastly different reasons. Google is the leading search engine provider, a smartphone platform juggernaut, and huge advertising machine, while Amazon is the largest e-tailer in the world and a cloud services powerhouse, though Google is coming up strong. Though they are different animals, these two companies find themselves locked in heated battle with their respective Google Home and Amazon Echo devices; a battle for AI dominance that could determine who will ultimately control a good chunk of the Smart Home market.
The Smart Home market has massive growth potential over the next decade and it's an area that Google wants to own. We all remember how late Microsoft was to the modern smartphone market and how Apple and Google walked all over Windows Phone, despite Windows Mobile blazing a trail years earlier. A similar fate could be in store for late arrivals to the Smart Home arena, but unlike Microsoft's Windows Phone efforts, Google and Amazon are making a strong early push to ensure they aren't left behind.
