Excerpt of my notes:
.... Google Home does have better bass in its own speaker, can be bluetooth linked to other speakers but have not tried that. Has some native podcasts, but not many. Has a number of integrated news casts,
Google/She has a similar problem in pronouncing constructed text, she trips up on odd words and proper nouns where general pronunciation rules don't apply. She does do a better job of maintaining a conversation ... that is if you ask for some information during a stream of music, she goes back to the stream. Echo often loses what it was doing originally. Still have not seen obvious examples where she is going deeper or remembers context of a previous conversation. Which would be hints at 'intelligence'. Or the use of your Google Knowledge Graph, except for the simplest things like location. Assume this is developing. Or use of 'common sense' semantics'. Still seems very search oriented. She still can't create a calendar entry by voice, though she links to Google's calendar. All interactions show up in text on the App, which is good for reference. ......
Is Samsung's Otto next? No pedestal Siri in sight.
