Google Home Hub
Not to long ago, we tested the Google Home Hub for a couple of weeks and were very impressed with it’s features, considering it’s half the price of Amazon’s offering, with the Echo Show. It has a 7″ LCD colour touchscreen and a full range speaker buitl into it’s base. It comes with Google Assistant, which is capable of doing many tasks for you, with a simple voice command. Ask about the news, how long your commute into the office will be, watch recipe tutorials on YouTube and even control other smart devices on your network. It’s a great bit of kit to get you started in the ‘smart home’ game, and at just £139 RRP, it’s a steal!

Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)
Perhaps the Google Home Hub is a little daunting, or out your price range, yet you still want to dip your toes into the ‘smart home’ livestyle. Well that’s where the Amazon Echo Dot could be your answer. Ask the voice-controlled speaker to play music, answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, control compatible smart home devices, and more. Music can be streamed through the handy little device including songs from Amazon Music, Spotify, TuneIn and others through the speaker for richer and louder sound. You can also connect to your own speakers over Bluetooth or with a 3.5 mm audio cable. Available in three different colours for £49.99.
