When discussing the Google Home, I still feel compelled to start with the Amazon Echo ($100 at Amazon).

The Google Home was good from the start, but it was clearly playing catchup to the surprisingly awesome, voice-controlled Amazon Echo. As of November 2018, the Google Home smart speaker is as good as it's ever been -- and significantly better than it was in November 2016 when it debuted. It's now on par with the Echo and yet, I'd currently recommend it to fewer people than ever before.
