Google discontinued its Google Glass wearable device and recently killed its project to develop modular smartphones.
For example, you can ask it a question such as “How long does it take to get to Winston-Salem from here?”, and it will provide the answer. That gives the companies a better chance of selling advertising or other services.
Google Home has the unique ability to connect to a nearby Chromecast or Chromecast Audio and route music and video to your speakers or TV, as seen in Google’s keynote. You can issue basic commands-“Play the new Bon Iver album”-and the gadget will do it. Google fans will probably love how the Assistant software that powers the Home works across all devices”.
Interest in smart homes appears to be rising as more people become enamored with their smartphones. Like Amazon Echo and British Gas’ Hive, Google is entering the increasingly competitive market of connected devices in the home.
The device is easy use as it manages everyday tasks fluently and one can ask Google assistant nearly anything that the user is willing to know.

At its annual hardware event held in San Francisco on October 4, tech biggie Google revealed details about the pricing and shipping date of its forthcoming “Google Home” voice-powered assistant. Chromecast Ultra will cost $69, more than twice the price of the regular Chromecast device. At the time of writing, the Echo is up for grabs at £150, while the Echo Dot (2nd generation) is £49.99. And Google Home will fill in the rest of the blanks, thus playing what you were looking for.
Amazon offers two versions of the Echo.
Google has sold smartphones and tablets under the Nexus brand, which it launched in 2010 as a way to show off the best features of its Android software. However, Alphabet Inc is targeting something bigger through this event, which would determine whether Google stock can cross its high level and go on to make new highs. “The hope is you can ask Alexa anything and it will be able to respond correctly, quickly and be able to be there”, he said. Its new Home device is a sleek internet-connected speaker that’s created to respond to voice commands, like Amazon’s popular Echo. We’ll have to wait until the Google Home arrives here in the United Kingdom to see which home assistant comes out on top.
