Thread: Smart speaker/home assistant?

  1. #1

    Default Smart speaker/home assistant?

    These little things look so cool and do a lot of useful things... but are they just a fad? We've lived without smart speakers for a long time, so I'm wondering if anyone bought one and doesn't use it anymore, or if they can't live without it now? :P

    Thinking of getting either an Alexa or a Google Assistant.

    I've never had one and at the moment don't see a use for it... I just google something on my phone instead...

    I'm not sure how Alexa or echo makes a big difference from Google or Siri.
    However, in the future, they'll be part of any electronic appliances so you can feel their presence in the bathroom heater, fridge, oven, etc and even in automobiles too.
    So its worth to wait for it unless you don't have a necessity to buy a smart speaker.
