Smart Home Devices to Look for in 2018

Smart Home Devices to Look for in 2018

We've built a way to answer those questions: The GearBrain - a compatibility checker designed for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, displaying every smart device that works with either of the leading smart speaker assistants. In fact, there will be a "Google Assistant Playground" to show off "new integrations, devices, and the newest ways you can use your Assistant".

Google's statement implies that from October 19 to January 5, it sold at least 6.73 million Home speakers.

One of the biggest holiday shopping season is behind us, and Google seems to be proud of how well its products performed since mid-October. The Home Max started shipping to consumers in December 2017, so it may not account for the sales.

It is still unknown on when Google is planning to launch these Google Home smart speakers in India.

In Addition, Google also announced that its Assistant is now running on 400 million devices. Coming off the success of a Kickstarter campaign, the Homey is now on the market and positioning its brand among some of the largest companies in the world.

Amazon and Google are expected to remain in the lead with their Echo and Home products respectively, but will face increased competition as new vendors enter the race.

Previous year in November, Google rolled out an update, which allows the users to use Home speakers as intercom systems in the house.

A recent study from Juniper Research found that smart speakers such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and the Sonos One will be installed in over 70 million USA households by 2022, reaching 55% of all homes.

Meanwhile Amazon, Google's main rival in the smart speaker space has not revealed exactly how many Echo smart speakers it has sold but it pegged the number of its competing Echo Dot sales in the millions, according to Businessinsider.com.
