I'm considering buying either an Amazon Alexa product or a Google Home product, but can't quite decide. I'll probably go with either an Echo Dot or a Google Home mini, as we're pretty invested in Sonos. We don't need a new music system, but a way to control what we have by voice is appealing. I know the Echo Dot will work with Sonos now, and presumably the Google Home Mini will work with Sonos in the near future (or am I wrong?).
We're an Android ecosystem family, we use Google Calendars, Chromecast etc. But, the music streaming service we do use is Amazon music, just to complicate things! I'd like opinions on which is the best smart home product to buy. How do they actually control Sonos? My ideal scenario is that we can control our Sonos system using Google Home mini, but tell it to stream songs from Amazon music, as we currently do with the Sonos app. Is that likely to be possible whenever Sonos actually works with Google Home mini? I'm willing to wait for that, but if that's not possible I do wonder if I should just go for the Echo Dot, no wait for music control needed. Are the smart home products just an alternative to using the Sonos app, so the full functionality of Sonos is available? Or is the streaming service one can use somehow dependant on the smart home device that's used? Am I making sense?! Thanks for any help you can give. I know it's not a massive purchase, but I'd rather not make the wrong decision and need to switch systems shortly.
