    Looking to buy a home device to use with Tasker and AutoVoice. Wondering which one plays better with them, Google Home or Echo?

    Both are about the same. Home has Routines, which echo doesn't have though :)

    I can't speak for the echo, I use google home and it works well. Google home app can set a shortcut so you can set "Hey google, XYZ" and in the command, make it automatically tell google "talk to autovoice" which then brings up the autovoice listener. I use Google assistant with IFTTT, join, tasker, eventghost to do many different things on my PCs and devices as well. Aside from autovoice, I have heard that as a normal device, Google is smarter at answering questions than the echo.

    It can be frustrating though when Google updates things and then they stop working. Asking google to sing nursery rhymes no longer works, instead of singing, she will send the command to play music to play said nursery rhyme.. Stupid Google lol (Sorry for the digression).
