We may even see a dedicated Google Home with a screen in 2018.

The tech major presently provides 3 Home gadgets namely the Home Max, the original Home, and the Home Mini.

YouTube support is also handled intuitively, recognising contextual prompts to help you out - in our demo, asking Google how to prepare the rosemary in a recipe it was reading out prompted it to automatically pull up a relevant YouTube tutorial.

Google Assistant soon will be coming to more than a dozen voice-activated speakers, including Altec Lansing, Anker Innovations, Bang & Olufsen, Braven, iHome, JBL, Jensen, JB, Klipsch, Knit Audio, Memorex, Riva Audio and SoLIS, Huffman said. According to the numbers in the report, 11% of Americans own an Amazon smart speaker, with 4% owning a Google Home device.

"We want to make sure that people have the broadest set of choices in terms of what kind of device they want that has Google Assistant".


Now that you know the Klipsch speakers that will support Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, would you be buying any of these products this year? The 8-inch model comes with a soft matte finish, while the 10-inch version can be customized with a bamboo finish. You got to check out this video right now! "Our Internet of Things products offer some of the most innovative, easy-to-use kitchen appliances that make cooking enjoyable, hassle-free, and smart". LG is playing both sides, in fact.

The market is still growing fast, with smart speakers among the top-selling devices at Amazon. Lenovo's Smart Display, for instance - our Best IoT/Smart Home award victor this year - pairs the AI technology with two different sizes of touchscreen, aiming to conquer a place on the kitchen counter that until now might have been home to an Amazon Echo Show. That would apparently put the Google Assistant at the heart of a smart home ecosystem, illustrating its close ties and integrations with other hardware from under the Alphabet umbrella like Nest thermostats and the Chromecast streaming adapter.

On the back end, Google is making it easier to discover all the things that Google Assistant can do. They include interoperable IoT devices ranging from tools to sensors, energy devices, entertainment controllers, lighting and other systems.

Another product category this year was smart speakers which were either powered by Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa, though it does seem that there were more speakers or devices with Google Assistant integrated into them. After months of feeling like Google Home was much more capable than I gave it credit for, there's finally a place to go where you can actually search all it can do.
