One could actually manually configure a Google Skill for Alexa, as to have Alexa provide Google answers -> http://alexamods.com/guide-install-ask- ... exa-skill/silverele wrote: ↑Dec 9th, 2017 10:19 amIt's not true about voice pick up, it's not in the facts. Amazon physically has more microphones that reach farther and it understands you just fine. The Amazon Echo and Dot have 7 mics, the Google Home has 2 the Mini has 1 or 2. By comparison, the Sonos speaker even has 6. I've compared the the smart speakers and voice pickup on the Alexa is more consistent. Neither are horrible.
They are working on the Amazon AI to make it more natural, they've got a department for it. People seem to forget it was literally JUST released in Canada, like 4 days ago. It's not going to be perfect, but it's pretty good as is now. It may not be able to give you Google search answers, but it understands questions just fine, as well as convert and calculate.
So if you are not happy with an answer that Alexa provides, just say...""Alexa, ask Google......"
