To keep up with the Amazon Echo? We started with the Echo in late 2014 and now have several Google Homes. Google passed Amazon awhile ago.
The biggest difference is that fact the Echo requires rigid language or basically commands you have to memorize to get it to do things. Versus the Google Home for most things you can just say it however it pops up in your head.
I don't think that its about "who done it first"
it's about the title of the article and suggesting that you get a Google thingy because you can change the wake word... or that the person didn't findd the term for what Amazon uses for ad wake word abs goes on to say that Googles overtaking amazon Alexa because you can change the wake word. the other guy highlighting that Google is cleverer at turning of my lounge light rather than say, I can't find kitchen lights when a can read kitchen lights in my Sunday home list... now that's worth using to say that Google's gadget is better than Alexa.
I hate so say it but... Bixby did it first
Well, that gave me a good chuckle. And you’re right! Bixby isn’t a major player in the smart home race (or really any race) though.
