Amazon Alexa is not as good as Google Assistant. I have both systems and there is a big difference in usability. Alexa was difficult to get started, bugged quite a long time before it worked, she only speaks English and you have to follow a stricter syntax when speaking with Alexa. A little awkward. Google Assistant is considerably more easily conversed and understands better, plus it is in Swedish. The app for Alexa is a whimsical and messy mess that seems to be folded without much effort for usability. It is an incomprehensible battle every time you do something through the app.
As a small speaker, it works well, for example, to easily listen to P1 for breakfast. No problem, but I would still recommend Google Assistant in front of this.
