Many people are having confusion between what to buy between Amazon Echo smart speaker or an Amazon Echo Show smart display? Or if you are looking for the Google Assistant then what should you go for: the Google Home Mini or a Google Home Hub?
Both Alexa and Google Assistant have their own uses but if you want only one piece of dedicated voice assistant hardware then which one do you pick?
When you compare the smart speakers to smart displays, you will find that both of them solve almost the same purpose. Both of them play the music, help you organize your day, search the web and they can also both act as a central control point for your smart home.
The concept of a voice-activated smart speaker was popularized by the Amazon Echo. The smart displays such as the Google Home Hub add a touchscreen which eases our work.
