Wherein we set out to answer a simple question: Which $49 smart speaker sounds better — Google Home Mini, or the Amazon Echo Dot?

Two speakers, both alike in dignity. And price. And, for the most part, size. Google Home Mini and Amazon Echo Dot.

For a good many folks, these will be the gateway drugs to a more connected life. The answer to “What’s all the fuss about?” when it comes to these commercials. Asking everyday questions. Getting everyday answers. Setting reminders and timers and — well, how about that — making what the old folks refer to as “phone calls,” though there need not be a phone in sight. And, yes, these little speakers can control all the things.
