Google’s Home is a smart speaker, a smart TV, a smarter camera, and a smarter home.
And while it’s a bit pricey, it’s actually one of the most affordable smart devices on the market right now.
In fact, it may just be the cheapest smart speaker on the planet.
It’s an Amazon Echo, a $159 device that works in conjunction with Alexa to voice control your TV.
Google’s product page on Amazon has an entire section dedicated to Home, but for the purposes of this article, I’m going to assume you’re familiar with the device.
In the US, Google Home costs $49.99.
You can also buy the Echo Dot for $59.99 or the Echo Pro for $79.99, which comes with a Google Home speaker and an Alexa-enabled remote.
For the record, these are not the same thing.
They’re both smart speakers with Alexa, but they’re not necessarily similar.
Alexa works by giving you commands and displaying a list of Alexa-compatible apps that you can use to control your home.
The Home also has a number of built-in smart features, including weather, reminders, and more.
For example, you can ask Alexa for directions to the grocery store, tell it to set your thermostat, or find nearby bars.
The Alexa-equipped Echo Dot and Echo Pro are also compatible with Google Home, meaning you can plug them into any of the connected devices you own and control them all with the Alexa voice assistant.
But the Echo Home is the one I’m most excited about.
The Echo Dot has a smaller size and a smaller price tag than the Echo PRO, but it’s bigger, too.
For $159, you get the Echo Plus, a more powerful speaker that comes with Alexa support and more features.
Echo Plus comes with voice search, voice recognition, and much more.
The larger Echo Dot is a little cheaper at $179.99 and comes with more features, but only two of those features are Alexa-supporting.
The $249 Echo Dot Plus also includes Alexa support, but its price is more competitive, and the two are a bit smaller.
So, the Echo Echo Dot might be a better fit for those who are looking for a more premium smart speaker than the smaller Echo Dot or Echo Pro.
For me, though, I like the Echo Spot.
The Dot is more affordable and features Alexa support.
But it also has Amazon’s HomeKit platform, so you can add more Alexa-friendly devices to the Dot.
I’m happy to report that both of these Echo devices are working with Amazon, so I can also control my home using voice commands with my Echo Dot.
Here’s what the Echo Nest looks like.
The Nest also comes with Amazon Alexa support but comes with only two Alexa-capable devices.
The Fire TV, which costs $39.99 ($30 less than the $199 Echo Dot), also supports voice commands, and it has Alexa support too.
I like both of those Echo devices a lot.
The Google Home and Echo Dot are the cheapest Alexa-supported smart speakers on the Market.
But you can also find a few cheaper Echo Dot-based smart devices for around $60.
The Amazon Echo Pro is also a cheaper Echo Plus with Alexa-only support, though it has a slightly lower price tag.
But again, both Echo Pros and Echo Spot are the most expensive Echo-supported devices on Amazon.
Alexa-powered Alexa-based Echo Dot devices are available for about $100.
The most expensive Alexa-connected Echo Dot device is available for $1,499.
The least expensive Echo Dot accessory is available at $149.99 on Amazon for $50 less than its Echo Dot Pro sibling.
But Amazon’s Echo Spot is still the most inexpensive Echo Dot accessories on Amazon, and its $99 price tag is still pretty competitive with the Echo Pros.
