Google Home called the smartest smartphone in the annual speaker test


According to the annual smart speaker test Loup Ventures, Google Home maintains the advantage of intelligence over competition.

Loup, a company that deals with risk research, tested Google Assistant, Alec, Siri and Cortana through their respective smart speakers. He conducted tests on the second generation of Amazon Echo, Google Home Mini, Apple HomePod and Harman Kardon Invoke (for Cortana).

The company has especially tested these assistants on the speakers because, although basic technology can be similar to smartphones, user experience and queries are often different.

Loup he asked each speaker to have the same 800 questions and evaluated the answers to two metrics. First, did the speaker understand the question? Secondly, did that correctly answer?

The questions also included the following five categories:

  • Local – questions like "Where is the nearest cafe?"
  • Shop – questions like "Can you order me more paper?"
  • Navigation – ask "How to get to the city center on the bus?"
  • Information – questions like "Who Will Leafs Set Tonight?"
  • Command prompts like "Remind me to call Steve at 2 pm today."

The assistant and Siri stood far above the competition

The Google assistant quit the competition, answered almost 88 percent of the queries correctly. Next, he understood 100 percent of the questions asked.

Siri is in second place, responding to 75 percent of the questions correctly. He understood 99.6 percent of the query.

Aleka took third place with 72.5% of correct answers and 99% of questions asked.

Finally, Cortana is the latest with 63.4% and 99.4% respectively.

Furthermore, Google home has dominated in four of five categories. He lost Siri at HomePod in the "Command" category. According to Loup, this is due to the deep integration of HomePod with the iPhone. It can pass the full requirements of SiriKit, such as those related to messages, lists, calendars, and more.

Note was also the advantage that Google Assitant had in the "Store" section. Google Home has raised 86 percent of trade issues compared to Aleck's 52 percent success rate.

Part of this is thanks to the ability of Google Now to answer product questions and where to buy them. Furthermore, Google Express – which is not available in Canada – is as robust as Amazon for purchasing items.

Finally, Google Home and HomePod could use their corresponding map data to accurately answer the questions in the "Local" and "Navigation" sections. Loup suggests that this will be a major factor both in the assistance, as well as in Sirius's teaching dominance of the market.

Many interesting information and data were discovered in the study. To see the entire report, you can visit Loup site here.
