I think most folks are best off with an Amazon Echo Dot or a Google Home Mini to start. Pick the Google product if you’re on Android and are already used to the Google Assistant since it’ll feel familiar.
Both products, however, offer affordable ways to see what the whole “smart home assistant” experience is like. The Echo Dot and Home Mini offer almost all of the same functions as more expensive Echo and Google Homes (the exception is Amazon Echo products with touchscreens, which have more visual data).
If you’re invested in the Apple ecosystem, like Siri, and put a high value on audio quality, then the HomePod is a good choice.
