Google unveils Home smart speakers to counter Amazon, Apple

The first is the Google Home Mini which as the name suggests is a smaller version of the speaker to provide hands-free voice control in any room.

Well, Google Home is also going to be available in Japan from today.

The Google Home Mini has been leaked in full detail earlier and, as expected, it is a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker with built-in Google Assistant.

Over the course of previous year, Google Assistant took in 50 million voice samples and learned more than 100 million new and unique answers to give back to users in a growing breadth of countries.

Google's Home Mini will retail for United States dollars $49 and can be pre-ordered today with a full release scheduled for October 19th.

Google Rishi Chandra who takes care of Google Home business says that Google Home is aimed at helping people manage their home works easily. In addition, users can search their connected smartphone by simply ringing it when asked to "find my smartphone".

Max Verstappen "really needed" his win at the Malaysian Grand Prix after a tough 2017 Formula One season, according to father Jos. Hamilton started the race in pole position before being passed by the flying dutchman in the early part of the race.

The Google Home Mini comes in three different colors: chalk (white), charcoal (black), and coral (red).

It has two 4.5-inch woofers on board and two 0.7 inch customer tweeters. It supports "Smart Sound" technology, which auto-changes the sound balance based on where the user is standing in the room. It can even adjust the audio depending on the ambient noise.

Coming to Google Home Mini, the smart speaker comes with fabric that is durable, yet transparent enough to let through both light and sound. Like most of Google's products, it's created to learn your habits to adjust its sound profiles based on usage or time of day.

You can use it as an intercom of sorts using the new broadcast feature; by placing the Home Mini in various places throughout your house, you can use it to broadcast a message to all Home devices in your house. It will come two colour options only - Chalk and Charcoal. Google is doubling down on bass, while Apple is just being Apple and saying it's awesome. You can simply tap the surface for interaction.
