What’s so special about Google's ecosystem?

Google Assistant smart home products are impressive not only because of their easy installation and broad functionality, but also because of their modern, minimal design. Thanks to Google's extensive compatibility with other brands and products, along with a breath of how-to information for every scenario, you can make your daily routine easier than ever before. Case in point: hear a recipe being read to you in the kitchen as you switch off the lights in the kids' bedroom, all while streaming the latest episode of your favorite TV series.

Google Assistant vs Amazon Alexa


Google Assistant boasts an extensive database of information that is always at the ready for its users. But Amazon also offers a device with voice assistance. What are the differences between the two?

Google Assistant devices use Google search, while Amazon Alexa uses Bing as its search engine. Google Assistant devices also use an open search system in which the best search results, without preference given to provider, are displayed. Amazon Alexa products use a directed search system.


If you look at the content depth of answers each assistant provides, there are also differences. Products that use the Google Assistant software give detailed and broad answers, while Amazon Alexa answers are simple and brief. Voice recognition, and therefore the personalized benefits on offer, is mature in both softwares and makes them easy to use. With its high excursion speaker, the Google Home for example, provides clear highs and powerful bass, while Amazon Echo includes a speaker with a tweeter and woofer for maximum volume.


Being precision-designed, sophisticated software, Google Assistant is a high quality choice. Amazon Alexa is comparatively middle class. Products such as the Google Home boast a sleek, modern and elegant design that makes it look great in every interior. Amazon has kept the design of its Echo more futuristic and technical. Both devices are compatible with other speakers and products. If you do not always want to use your voice assistant, you can manually switch off the microphone for both products and thus switch off speech recognition.


The Google smart home ecosystem

 Google Home smart home systems

Ever dreamed of turning on the lights just by using your voice? A Google Assistant smart home ecosystem makes this dream a reality. Create your own personalized ecosystem in which you can control compatible smart products with voice commands. This lets you turn your lights on and off, change the temperature or operate your home security system - all with a simple "OK Google" or “Hey Google.” You can build this ecosystem through products such as the Google Home, Google Home Mini or Google Home Max.

What's the big deal with a Google Assistant smart home ecosystem

A Google Assistant smart home ecosystem implies one thing - you no longer need a smartphone to navigate your smart devices. Thanks to voice recognition you can do this easily and conveniently using commands. Switch the light on or off, change the temperature, and much more.


"OK Google, dim the lights in the kitchen."
"Hey Google, how's the weather this evening in San Francisco?"

You won’t only experience the convenience of using voice commands in just one room of your home. Multi-room function and speech recognition mean that you can also use your voice commands from a distance, even a different room. Connect your compatible speaker to a Google Assistant product and control it with your voice, allowing you to play your favorite tunes with a simple voice command.


"OK Google, play music."
"Hey, Google, pause the living room speakers."

Google Assistant has even more features to make your daily life easier. You can synchronize it with your day planner, do online shopping and check travel information.


"OK Google, what do I have on today?"
"Hey, Google, how long will it take me to get to work?"
"OK Google, what is a good substitute for cardamom?"
"Hey Google, how do you say "see you later" in German?"
