Perphaps, our country is discovering all the functions of the voice assistants, but there are places like USA where these devices are integrated day-to-day.

These software are integrated in differents hardwares, for example:
- Smart speakers like Amazing Echo, Google Home or Microsoft.

Today we´re going to talk about Google´s voice assitant, Google Assistant.
There is a fight with the others voice assistants to get the first place on this sector. Google has done a big investment an it gets to be on the top of them:
– Time to Answer: Google Assistant offers faster answer than the other assitants.
– Background Noise: Google Assistant and Siri work so good with background noises.
– Best results: Google gives better results than Alexa. Google uses its onw searcher to give better results. Meanwhile, Amazon assitant looks for around its webs and showed products.
– Integration: the integration is a key element. Google Assistant is ready to be used by Android or iOS system, meanwhile Siri only works with iOS system.
– Personalized results: Google has a lot of personal data, it doesn´t mean that it hasn´t privacity, when you looking for something. Then, it could give you a personalized results.
– Cost/Quality Balance: with a price of 120€, Google speaker isn´t the cheapest device, as Alexa is, but it doesn´t get the 350€ of Apple assistant. It´s a great balance of quality/price.
If we think what could Google Home do for us if we install it at home, we´ll discover that:
– We connect it with the automatic shutters and we could open and close them with our voice.
– We connect it with our automatic garage gates and with our voice we could open and close the home access.
– Electric devices could be connected and we could swith on without force.
This is only the begining of a technology with a great future.
