Starfish brings Microsoft Groove to Amazon Echo

04 Octubre 2017, 12:10 | Verda Sainz

Google is expected to debut Manhattan in the mid-2018, but as the competition in the segment is soaring with Microsoft also gearing up to launch Invoke smart speaker, Google might just speed up the launch.

Regardless, this is welcome news if you're in the Google ecosystem and looking to expand the number of those connected assistants around your house. But the company doesn't appear to be satisfied with only dominating the voice-enabled speaker market. There are also differences between Google Home and Echo, as well.

In typical Amazonian fashion, the company also shrank the price: The new Echo will sell for $100 in the United States. Amazon's implementation of YouTube on the Echo Show violates our terms of service, creating a broken user experience. It was a sort an Operation Shock and Awe of Echos, bringing the total line up to six devices - seven, if you count the Tap (which Amazon kind of, sort of does). The person you're calling will see the number associated with your Amazon account. Although the look of the Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Plus, the internal specification of the device has undergone a major change.

The mini home will take on Apple's HomePod, Amazon's Echo and Google's own, larger Home. The screen-equipped Echo Show will also support basic video calling when it arrives in Britain next month.

This is a smart move by Amazon for two reasons. "It's easy to imagine this becoming, one of the most popular Alexa-enabled devices yet". Meanwhile, Google has a kind of solution to that through its Google Home devices, which do not necessarily require a handset to be connected and can interact with the Chromecast.

How much traction can Google Home and the highly anticipated Google Home 2 gain this year against Amazon Echo devices? YouTube used to be available to our shared customers on Echo Show.

Most importantly, this update to the Google Home app brings in a night mode. In the night mode, your Google Home and Google Home Mini devices will blurt out notifications at a lower volume. "Plus, you can pair Fire TV to any of your Echo devices to enjoy hands-free, far-field voice control, powered by Alexa". Furthermore, the company has both HD and 4K Chromecast options available for consumers. And that could eventually translate into a significant revenue jump for Amazon.

Amazon investors should read these numbers and smile.

Even more compellingly, the company made a big push to get Assistant functionality onto more third-party devices.

As Amazon stated, "Routines let you control multiple devices and actions with a single voice command-for example, simply say, 'Alexa, good morning, ' and Alexa will turn on the lights, start your coffee pot, and read the day's forecast".

David and Tom just revealed what they believe are the 10 best stocks for investors to buy right now. and Amazon wasn't one of them!
