Amazon's Echo has been on the market for quite awhile and while it initially shipped with limited support for third-party services, these steadily increased over time. Google's competing product Google Home has been on the market for a lot less time although the big G has been quick to increase its potential, especially with their most recent update.
Here are some of the new integrations that the latest firmware includes:
- WebMD (health)
- Food Network (recipes)
- Product Hunt (tech)
- Lonely Planet (travel)
- Tender (cocktails)
- Chill (Netflix recommendations)
- Itcher (book recommendations)
- VentureBeat (tech news)
- NPR One

- Netflix (requires Chromecast)
- Google Photos
