The Amazon Echo was the first buyer level gadget reacting to voice control with universally useful capacities, for example, playing music, telling the weather, streaming a movie, and more. It was first launched in the US in 2015.
A year later, in 2016, Google came up with its very own device to compete with the Amazon Echo – Google Home. So ever since, there have been ongoing debates on Amazon Alexa vs. Google Home – which of the two is better.
Stone Temple, a digital marketing blog, gathered 5,000 questions to ask both Google Home and Amazon Alexa. In the experiment to decide the results of Google Home vs. Amazon Echo (Amazon Echo is the device’s name, whereas Alexa is the assistant’s name) It verbally asked the gadgets each question and noted a broad range of answers.
It needed to check if every gadget got the appropriate response from a database, such as Google’s Knowledge Graph, or sourced the response from an outside source like Wikipedia and other websites. The test likewise noticed how frequently Amazon Echo and Google Home failed to understand the question and when they provided an inappropriate or irrelevant answer,
The Stone Temple test was not a trial of the features of these gadgets, but their capacity to respond to the questions correctly and satisfactorily.
The results found Google Home addressing thrice the measure of inquiries contrasted with Amazon Echo – 3,383 versus 1,030.
Out of the number of questions that Google Home replied, 89.5 percent of them were answered correctly, as compared to the Amazon Echo’s 86.9 percent of right answers. Out of the questions, Google Home replied, 2.3 percent of them were wrong, while Alexa got 6.3 percent of wrong answers.
A question may have numerous responses. Additionally, the gadget may have reacted with a joke, or it may find the solution off-base.
Clearly Google Home had the edge on information because of Google search: 2,228 of Google’s answers came as Featured Snippets, which implies that the outcomes were sourced from an outsider site. However, not the majority of the 2,228 Featured Snippets were 100-percent correct. Just 2,122 of the right responses for Google Home were from snippets. Just 556 of Amazon Alexa’s correct answers originated from outside sites, 527 of which were sourced from Wikipedia.
Along these lines, in the battle of Amazon Alexa vs. Google Home, Google Home gives off an impression of being the more witted gadget. With access to Google’s vast database of information, this is not shocking. Amazon Alexa performed well, apparently without depending on Google for its answers.
It is just a matter of time before Microsoft Cortana Live comes in the race and provides a sturdy competition to Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
And then, the race will be more exciting.
