  AI System:  We’ll know amazon’s echo dot comes with a Fluent Ecosystem of AI based softwares, Though Google assistant Provides a Large range of Quality, Amazon is more likely fluent with English, Hindi and Other Supported Languages, One more thing to consider that’s quite Important for me Personally, Calling “Alexa” is Quite easy as compared to “Hey Google”. Again, It’s totally personal but sometimes it’s very annoying to spell out Hey Google.
