This week, Google announced the Google Home device and finally creates competition for the Amazon Echo. The question is, are they too late to the game!
Google Home is a voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant. You can ask it questions and tell it to do things and it should obey you. It’s the same old “OK Google” command we’ve had with Google Now. Say the keyword and Google waits for your next commands to come through and then tries to work out what you want to perform the required actions.
According to Google, the speaker system is also top notch featuring a High Excursion speaker, but no where do they really give any details. If the speaker is good and the voice recognition works well then Google may have a winner on its hands, Only time will tell.
When your ready to make a your purchase, head over to the Google Play Store and pre-order now for $129. Actual devices are scheduled to ship on November.
