One of the latest emerging technologies today is voice-activated service. Two popular applied tools other than hand- held devices are Amazon Echo and Google Home. In the presentation, we would like to provide brief information about current trends of voice recognition and related artificial intelligence technology, comparing analysis between Amazon Echo and Google Home, possible functions to apply the library services, and expected future development and library services. We will also present samples of customizable settings through their cloud-based service such AWS and Google Assistant to deliver customizable services via Amazon Echo and Google Home.
