via IFTTT Google Home vs Amazon Alexa – Setting and Managing Alarms
It’s time to pit Google Home vs Amazon Alexa (or Google Home vs Amazon Echo) in terms of features and capabilities. In each video in this series, I’m going to compare the two voice-enabled assistants (Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa).
In this first video of our series, I’ll show you the capabilities of Google Home and Amazon Alexa in terms of setting and managing alarms.
The Google Home’s alarm setting feature includes the capability for setting an alarm by voice, creating recurring alarms, touch and voice control, retrieving existing alarm information, and media alarms, music alarms, and radio alarms. All of these features are available on Google Home, Google Home Mini, and Google Home Max. The Google Home wasn’t capable of setting alarms with the app, and it wasn’t capable of changing the base sound (unless it was a media/radio alarm of course).
The Amazon Alexa (and Amazon Echo, Echo Plus, and Echo Dot) is capable of every feature we compared, except creating alarms with the App. Alexa was able to set alarms by voice, change the sounds the alarm makes, handles touch and voice control, creates recurring alarms, can give you information about your alarms, and can execute media/music/radio alarms as well.
Having said all that, Alexa’s music alarms aren’t allowed in most regions. It’s currently only available in the US.
In the end, the Amazon Echo and or Amazon Alexa is the winner versus Google Home in terms of setting and managing alarms.
