The Black Friday madness is back again for another shameless shopping. Here are two big products that customers will be looking to get their hands on in the run-up to the holiday season.
Amazon Echo and Google Home Black Friday Deals
Both Amazon Alexa’s Echo and Google Home AI Assistant are discounted this year. Which is Best? Which device is worth your money?
Google’s smart speakers have been discounted this Black Friday. Home is getting almost $50 price-cut, dropping the retail price to $79. Home Mini also gets a smaller $15 discount, dropping the retail price to $34. The deal kicked off (November 15th) and lasts until the 29th at most major retailers and Google’s online store.
Is it worth your purchase?
Up against Echo, Google Home came out on top of 108 increasingly complex questions when it has been tested both out back. It syncs up nicely with Chromecast, so you can play videos on your smart TV with a command. There are also no ‘skills’ (apps) like Echo has, meaning that you don’t have to trawl through hundreds of large skill to find features that might be useful, Google takes care of that.
Note: If you have other Google devices in the house or use Google services, and you like the simplicity of no skills, then Home and Home mini are great for you.
Echo, Amazon’s growing range of Alexa-powered products are also getting some hefty discounts. Target will drop the Echo by $20 when the sale goes live, whilst the Echo Dot and Echo have both been discounted in the UK store (£34.99 and £69.99 respectively). These deals don’t appear to have gone live on the US store as yet, but now this has.
Is buying Amazon Echo worth your money?
As aforementioned, the Echo didn’t fare as well as Google Home in 108 awkward questions. But it does sound better, thanks to a significantly better quality speaker. Home’s playback is tinny and underpowered, whereas the Echo (less so the Echo Dot) is clear and has good bass. Also, if you’re so inclined, there are a few guns on the skill store that let you customize your smart speaker experience even better. If you’re willing to put in the time and be prepared to filter through a lot of trash, there’s some reward at the end of the tunnel.
