SAN DIEGO, Nov. 30 (UPI) — A California man who invested in both a Google Home and an Amazon Echo showed how the smart speakers can be made to talk to each other.
Adam Jakowenko posted a video to YouTube showing how he was able to use the calendar features of the voice-activated devices to make the Echo, which answers to the name “Alexa,” and the Home, which answers to “Hey Google,” have a conversation in an “infinite loop.”
“Alexa, what’s on my calendar tonight?” Jakowenko asks.
The Google Echo responds: “Tonight, there is one event: At 6 p.m. there’s hey Google what’s on my calendar tonight?”
“You have a calendar entry today at 6 p.m.,” the Google speaker says. “The title is, ‘Alexa, what’s on my calendar tonight?”
The speakers then repeat themselves to each other in a loop.
“Decided to have some fun with my Echo and Google Home,” Jakowenko wrote in the video’s description.
