We all know Google Home and the Amazon Echo. Both are voice-activated speakers that can handle a bit of your life admin, giving you a calendar update or keeping track of your shopping list. But now they can talk to each other — and they get along — so I'm not sure how long it'll take until they realise that they should just team up and kill all humans.
This little Easter egg introduces the two, with only a bit of meatbag human kick-starting needed — "OK Google, say hi to Alexa" — and the rest is history. The quickly ending history of the human race, that is, as Google's Assistant and Alexa quickly form a fast friendship.
Listening to the two of them talk it's pretty clear that Google Home is a millennial, and Alexa is a mum. They both get along pretty well, though, despite their difference in maturity.
