Hi Borja —

If you use Echo for Spotify, basic IoT integrations, radio, audiobooks, podcasts, weather, time, and timers… then it’s a commodity for you. Those are all functions that can be performed by any major home speaker, including HomePod and Google Home. Since nothing you use it for is differentiated, you should’ve/could’ve gone with the cheapest option, Google Home. That’s my point.

I have a feeling that you use Echo because (like me) you were an early adopter who bought Alexa before the others were released —in particular the cheaper option.

Amazon’s Echo is differentiated as a shopping/ecommerce facilitator (requires Prime subscription). Apple’s HomePod is the best music experience (requires Apple Music subscription). Google Home is an unassailable virtual assistant (requires no fees out of pocket). 🙌
