But what if you didn’t have to pick just one? What if you could just add your Google Home device in the Alexa app? Both Amazon Alexa and Google Home are continually updated and developed to make your life easier. Better known just as Alexa, Amazon Alexa is software created by Amazon that has been integrated with the Amazon Echo line of devices. It is a virtual assistant that responds to all kinds of voice commands.  Meanwhile, Google Home is a smart hub integrated with other Google-powered devices like Nest cams, thermostats, and Chromecast. Google Home is also capable of providing quick access to Google searches and a plethora of other commands.
