Other companies have been able to work closely with Amazon so there are so many skills that Alexa boasts. Primarily because it was first to market, for example the ability to order an Uber with your voice was done before anyone else.
The early bird catches the worm some say, and this has held Amazon in good stead for being that one step ahead however that does not mean that Google cannot catch up quickly!
One massive plus point for Google is that of it’s incredible artificial intelligence, Google Assistant.
Google processes so much data every single day, unimaginable amounts of data and that gives the user the ability to talk to a virtual assistant whom is great to talk to,and works with all of the apps you may already use.
Say for example you are an Android phone user, or perhaps you use a Google calendar to keep on top of your schedule, the Google Assistant will be able to offer you personalised information based on your own schedule.
The Google Assistant is also much better at handling contextual questions. For example, if you were to ask; “What football team does Fellaini play for?” And then go on to ask; “How old is he?”, the assistant will understand and know that you are still questioning about Fellaini.
