Amazon puts no such restrictions on Alexa, wagering that the voice assistant with the most "skills", its term for apps on its Echo assistant devices, will gain a loyal following, even if it sometimes makes mistakes and takes more effort to use. That makes it a bit taller than the portly Google Home, and slightly shorter than canister-shaped Amazon Echo. "Currently these smart appliances are likely to be assistant-enabled, and there is a possibility of also embedding this digital assistant AI-based technology within certain premium ranges of appliances, such as smart fridges, smart wall ovens, smart coffee machines and even robotic vacuum cleaners". Like the Amazon Echo and Google Home, the HomePod will play music while also helping people to manage their lives and homes.
First it was Amazon, then it was Google and now it's Apple's turn to have a crack at a voice-activated home assistant speaker.
