One Google Home Device Is Sold Every Second: Google

US-IT-LIFESTYLE-GOOGLE

Google claims it has sold "more than one" Home Speaker per second since the Home mini started shipping on October 19.

With Google Home Mini and Google Home Max in addition to original Google Home, we brought you even more ways to use the Assistant in your home.

Over the course of 2017, Google sold "tens of millions" of its devices for the home. "All told, Google Home usage increased 9X this holiday season over last year's, as you controlled more smart devices, asked more questions, listened to more music, and tried out all the new things you can do with your Assistant on Google Home". But while device profits may have been negligible, the information companies such as Amazon and Google will learn from our purchases and habits will more than recoup those losses-and it's something you'll likely forget about as you're indoctrinated into the Alexa way of life.

If you take a look at the Home Max, it only launched mid-December and costs $399. This is an intriguing statistic, but it doesn't really mean that people will stop using their smartphones when smart speakers become commonplace in every home.

Google says since October one Google Home device - both the Home and Mini - sells every minute, with more than 400 million devices installed with Google Assistant. 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.

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

Back in November, we learned that for the first time in several years, Google would have an official presence at CES.

Devices from Amazon and Google are the clear leaders in the smart speaker category with their respective Echo and Home products.
