In the event you missed the previous articles comparing Google Home and Amazon Echo, you can find them here:
In the first article, I reported that neither the Google Home nor the Amazon Echo provided, nor were either able to provide information on what the temperature really felt like outside. I am happy to report that Google Home has started to provide that information in the weather report, when it is appropriate. For example, as I was writing this on a Thursday evening, I asked Google what the weather was. In addition to telling me that snow showers were coming, it told me it was 31 degrees. Then it went on to say: "Due to current wind conditions, it feels like it's 23." That, of course, is very helpful information. Please note, however, that when I simply asked what the current temperature was, Google told me what the temperature was and did not include the "feels like" information. So be sure to say something like: "Hey Google. What's the weather?" in order to get the "feels like" information when that is a factor.
As of this writing, Amazon Echo does not provide "feels like" weather information.
