On the topic of Alexa vs Google Home…

Wife: “Alexa, can you substitute baking soda for baking powder?”

Alexa: “Hmm, I’m not sure what you meant by that question.”

Wife: “Alexa, can you substitute baking soda for baking powder?”

Alexa: “I’ve added baking powder to your shopping list.”

Wife: “Wtf… Hey Google, can you substitute baking soda for baking powder?”

Google Home: “According to SimplyRecipes, you can substitute baking soda for baking powder, if you increase the amount of acidic ingredients in the recipe to offset the baking soda. You’ll also need much less baking soda as it is 3 times as powerful as baking powder. You’ll need about a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice for every 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.”

Wife: Dayum.

  1.       From what I heard from people who deal with all 3 voice assistant products, Google has hands down the best vocal recognition, Amazon the best logic.  Siri is purportedly lagging behind in both areas.  I can say that both Google and Amazon have been relatively reliable on the first shot, with Google a bit better.  Haven't had a single misinterpreted command with my roughly 2mo old Echo sofar.  A few quirks, but works quite nicely.
