Echo Dot Gen 3/ Google Home Mini
As a part of the Amazon Great Indian Festival and Flipkart Big Billion Days sales, both the Google Home Mini and Echo Dot Gen 3 smart speakers are available at Rs 2,299. Both these smart speakers can be used to get hands-free replies to queries, control smart home devices like bulbs, have them play music and audiobooks, set reminders, book cab rides and more. But these have their own set of features and differences. Home Mini is integrated with Google services, meaning users can get their calendar alerts, traffic updates and more automatically. Furthermore, users can also set up to six routines, where Assistant will brief you about the weather, read out news, current day’s schedule, reminders, etc. And, if users add their smart home bulbs to Assistant, they can be controlled through the Routines. Home Mini can also ring users phone if they can’t find it.
On the other hand, as for the Echo Dot, if you’re a Prime user, you can play unlimited music from Amazon Music, and one can even also buy products from Amazon using just their voice. Echo Dot comes with Alexa-to-Alexa calling feature that allows you to call your friends who have an Alexa device free of cost. Users can get Bollywood and cricket jokes from Alexa, and it can even read out news from various pre-selected Indian news publications.
While Google Assistant’s voice is more natural compared to Alexa, Amazon’s Echo Dot is more customised to India with hundreds of local skills for various smart home gadgets and the ability to order from Amazon. Google Home Mini still doesn’t support hands-free calling in India. But then again Google Home Mini handles search queries more affectively and the music playback is better as well. Both devices support the Hindi language. So, based on your preferences, you can pick one on Amazon.in and Flipkart.
