Here’s how Google’s new $150 Home Hub compares to the Amazon Echo Show


Google and Amazon are direct competitors in tech, and have seemingly been taking any steps possible to outwit each other. Google, which owns YouTube, blocked the video website from working on Amazon Echo Show and Fire TV devices back in December 2017.

So if you use YouTube regularly to watch how-to videos around the house, or use YouTube Music as your go-to music streaming service, Google Home Hub will be the better choice. Google is also including a six-month trial of YouTube Premium, its ad-free streaming subscription, with the purchase of a Home Hub. If you prefer one of the other music streaming services (like Spotify, Pandora, and iHeart Radio), then either smart speaker will work.

However, the Echo Show beats the Home Hub if you’re trying to use your smart speaker to stream live TV and your favorite shows beyond what YouTube has to offer. Amazon’s device is compatible with Prime Video and Hulu.
