Daenerys and Tyrion were whispering two seconds ago, but suddenly a battle has broken out, and it's so loud, you're worried your neighbors are going to complain. No worries. The Echo takes verbal volume commands.
What we don't watch with Google Home: 'Parts Unknown'
Google Home can't take requests for specific episodes, and some instalments of this show are better than others. So if you really just want to see the famous Hanoi edition of "Parts Unknown," you're going to have to find it yourself.
Siri won't mistakenly think you're speaking to her unless you push down your phone's activation button or say the word "hey" first. So you're free to watch "The Today Show," which often features Carson Daly's wife, Siri, in cooking segments. The "heys" are rare, if they happen at all.
Do you love "Love," but your partner can't stand the show? Google Home will pick up where you left off, so when your partner begs you to turn to something else -- anything else -- it won't feel like a sacrifice.
What we watch with Siri: Anything when we're stumped
Yes, Siri works with Apple TV and can pause, fast-forward and can even tell you who stars in a particular show.
But her best feature? Siri can recommend a comedy ("Show me some funny indie movies") or any movie, even if you're not sure what it's called. Try, "Find the movie starring Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable."
