Sold more than one Google Home device every second : Google

"We sold more than one Google Home device every second since Google Home Mini started shipping in October", Rishi Chandra, VP, Product Management, Google Home, said in a blog post on Friday.

While Google is claiming to have sold millions of Home speakers, it didn't give a breakdown of how those sales were split between the Home, the Home Mini, and the Home Max. 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. Google made a decision to brag a bit about how successful its Home speakers have been in a blog post published yesterday. However, the Google Home Mini which is priced at just $49 in the USA must have sold in millions.

The tech giant now offers three Home devices - the original Home, the Home Max and the Home Mini. 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.

Macron says there is now no chance of Turkey's European Union bid progressing
French president also said Turkey and France would continue to fight against terrorism and terror groups such as the PKK and Daesh.


Despite tasting success in the USA and Western Europe, China will continue to elude the two smart speaker giants, Amazon and Google.

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.
