It depends on a few things, I guess. I find the Google more reliable (sometimes the Echo doesn't respond to 'Alexa' and I have to say it a few times even though I've done the voice training, but the Google I find very reliable).

Then on the services you use. The Echo products are good if you have Amazon Prime as you get access to Prime Music which you can use on the Echos without paying any more, but the Google seems to be more compatible with most other services through the Cast feature (Android apps in particular).

I'm not sure it's easy to recommend one over the other, without knowing what you'd be hoping to use it for. But I do personally prefer the Google products. I have some Google Home Mini speakers, a Nest Hub, Chromecast, some Echo Dots (3rd generation), and Fire TV, so I've had quite a bit of time to compare the two ranges.

Hopefully somebody else can answer this as I haven't used the Echo Show 8.

But I have found with the speakers, that the Echo generally sound better than the Google equivalent in my experience.
I upgraded from ‘Echo Dot’ to ‘Show 5’. I like returned visuals along with spoken answers / skills and you can have screensavers / photos or say “display off. “ Some music has lyrics from previous purchased on Amazon.
