As a smart home writer, I spend a lot of time with both Alexa and Google Assistant. I’m keen on staying up-to-date with the best Alexa skills and best Google Assistant skills, so I’ve managed to juggle both virtual butlers in my personal life. Scandalous, I know.
But when it comes to my parent’s DIY smart home renovation, I want to avoid complicating their system of connected products. That’s why I’m committing to one assistant for purchasing any of the best smart home devices, setting up routines and enabling hands-free controls. And that assistant is Alexa.
