Meet Google’s Voice-Controlled Home Device
The latest product from the tech giant can perform commands within the home from one central hub
Google has released a new gadget this week to complement part of its new Google Home collection, which offers help from an AI assistant for everyday tasks. These include playback entertainment throughout the home and searching Google for any request, no matter how trivial, all via voice-control.
The voice-controlled home device is constantly on the lookout for commands, ready to serve the user at any given moment and as soon as it hears, “OK Google,” from a pre-recorded, registered member of the family. Once connected, Google’s Assistant, which is built into the device, can answer questions, according to Google in the form of a “two-way dialogue,” and also control other connectable devices around the space. It also plays music, podcasts or different radio stations from compatible services like Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube Music and Pandora.

Now that the Google Home collection is all but complete, it will be interesting to see how consumers take to it, and how it competes with Apple’s Home. The device is now available to pre-order via the designated Google Home website.
