Amazon Echo Dot(Alexa) Vs Google Home Mini

Alexa has several hidden abilities.

You probably use your Amazon Echo ($60 at Amazon) for playing music, powering on your smart home devices and making phone calls. But are you really using Alexa to its full potential when you’re only calling on it for the basics?

After all, there are tons of things Alexa can do that you may not have thought about yet. For example, you can cast something from one Echo device to another. You can also quickly send donations to a charity and have Alexa guard your house while you’re away. :
