Google says it sold over 6 million Home speakers since mid-October


With all these choices, you've connected millions of new smart home devices to Google Home every month. Home Max was launched in mid-December at $399 -- so it's clear that it makes up a small portion f those million of sales.

Enjoy The GearBrain and let us know if you don't see a product listed - but are searching for a solution that works specifically with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Google now has three Home products- Google Home, Google Home Mini, and the Google Home Max. The Assistant is now available on more than 400 million devices, including speakers like Google Home, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, headphones, TVs, watches and more. The company today has taken wraps off its large booth and unsurprisingly it is mostly focused on the Google Assistant.

Furthermore, building up the anticipation, Google said that they would be revealing more features and future of Google Assistant in 2018 at the CES 2018.

In the United States though, the company is adding more and more features to the Google Assistant. Rather than focusing primarily on how to sell devices to new customers, vendors will look to things like advertising, content subscription, premium services or enterprise products to monetize their installed base of current users. Users can broadcast their voice through Google Assistant on smartphones or voice-activated speakers like Google Home.

Apart from this, the Google Assistant for Home has some more features such as reminders, asking to play/pause music, etc. Google made a decision to brag a bit about how successful its Home speakers have been in a blog post published yesterday. Though it's safe to say the the Home Mini is by far the most popular speaker for Google this holiday season.
