Smart speakers are available for any preference when purchasing from Google, Apple, or Amazon.

Smart speakers are increasingly common in homes; choosing the best one for you can feel intimidating. Smart speakers come in many sizes, prices, audio qualities, and voice assistants. It can be hard to choose the best smart speaker when there are so many options to choose from.

Smart speakers like the Amazon Echo have the ability to change the lights, play music, ask questions, set reminders, and more with a simple voice command.

Choosing a speaker is easy if you love a specific company’s products. Whether you are an Apple, Google, or Amazon fan, it’s easy to choose a speaker. 

Amazon Echo smart speakers lead to other similar devices thanks to the headstart they provided.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen)

The best smart speaker overall is Amazon Echo

It’s hard to decide which smart speaker and assistant you prefer when making a smart home setup. Alexa and Google Assistant both work with a large number of devices. They provide great audio quality and help you manage them easily.

Google Assistant is smarter than Alexa, but Alexa works with additional smart home devices and makes setting up with voice commands easier. Thanks to a $70 fourth-generation Echo, Amazon wins the title of the smartest speaker. Its Alexa functionality gives the company a significant edge.

The Echo Plus contains a built-in radio that can also connect to the Zigbee system. It has improved sound thanks to Alexa’s smarts. Including this means that you don’t need a separate hub device to connect Zigbee lights, locks, sensors, and other devices to your home setup.

Echo smart speakers can hear glass breaking and send alerts when you’re away.

Google’s Nest Mini (2nd generation)
The best budget smart speaker is the Google Home Mini

Google’s smart speaker devices are currently on par with Amazon’s. It’s virtually impossible to tell the difference between these two devices at this point; users will have to decide which one is cheaper.

Google Nest Mini speakers have nearly the same capabilities as Amazon Echo Dot speakers— making them an excellent alternative to the Dot if Google Assistant is your preferred smart assistant. Plus, our tests determined Google Assistant to be slightly smarter than Alexa.

Google’s routines combined commands work with more home devices than Amazon’s similar commands. This is because the company’s smart home tools have more flexible names— making it easier to command them without remembering every specific title.

Google Assistant can distinguish between multiple voices, so it will respond to your request with different results if you ask about your calendars. And Alexa can also do this now.

Choose the newest Echo Dot as your voice assistant.

If Alexa is your voice assistant of choice, you should go with the latest Echo Dot. It’s affordable and offers all the Alexa skills and smart home integrations you’ll need. Overall, Google still has the intelligence edge, and the Google Nest Mini is a great, low-cost way to take advantage of those smarts.

Apple HomePod Mini

The best smart speakers for HomeKit

Apple’s small, Siri-enabled smart speaker bridges the odd gap between its $100 rivals like Google’s Nest Audio and Amazon Echo and other, cheaper, small-package speakers like the Nest Mini and Echo Dot.

Features like talkback, audio switching, and stereo pairing make this small smart speaker very handy. It looks good and sounds great. On the smart home front, Siri and HomePod Mini are limited to devices that work with Apple’s HomeKit smart home platform.

Fewer such HomeKit-compatible devices are available than those that support Alexa or Google Assistant, but that could soon change once the universal smart home standard, Matter, rolls out later this year. If you love Apple – if Siri is your favorite smart assistant or HomeKit is your favorite smart home platform – you’ll love Apple’s latest smart speaker.

For those who already use an iPhone, Apple TV, or original HomePod, adding this smart speaker to the collection just makes sense.

Sonos One (2nd generation)

The Best Sounding smart speaker

The $220 Sonos One lets you pair two devices for stereo or multi-room audio, but even a single speaker sounds great playing a variety of music genres.

Even better, the Sonos One has Alexa and Google Assistant built-in—just select the option you want to use for voice commands during setup. Plus, Sonos features Apple’s AirPlay 2, so you can control it with any Siri-enabled device, including your iPhone.

All in all, the Sonos One is a great-sounding, affordable, premium smart speaker for a smart hub home with Alexa, Google Assistant, or Siri. This is a hard ball to hit.
