Google unveils Home smart speakers to counter Amazon, Apple

06 Octobre 2017

Conversely, the $399 Home Max is a top of the line speaker set to compete with the likes of Sonos when it comes to both audio fidelity and voice assistant functionality.

Though there's nothing wrong with the voice-controlled Google Home smart speaker, the Google Assistant-controlled smart home gadget hasn't caught on like Amazon's Alexa-enable speakers. Both the Echo Dot and Home Mini support Stuff's favourite streaming service, but this is where your setup comes in.

So ok, Google, I understand that it's still the early days of Home smart speakers.

Google also wants to get smarter at adopting the sound to particular situations.

The Google Home Max offers the most substantial audio quality of the three, and it achieves this through a combination of hardware and software.

Une chaude réunion d'octobre en vue — Zone Franc
La réunion de jeudi a par ailleurs abouti au constat d'"un problème de croissance de l'endettement" dans les pays de la zone CFA. Le Maire a balayé une éventuelle dévaluation du franc CFA.

Google's edge may come from its artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning efforts, which could lead to better shopping experiences, such as more personalized recommendations, for customers.

In short, the Echo Dot is the more versatile music controller out of the box, but the Home Mini's Chromecast compatibility gives it better multi-room Spotify powers if you're willing to shell out a few extra quid.

With the launch of Google Home Mini, Google now has rough parity with Amazon in terms of market-penetrating low-end affordability of its smart speakers, but remains at a competitive disadvantage in two obvious dimensions. "The audio is produced by dual 4.5" subwoofers and custom tweeters. Google has also partnered with Costco and Target for voice shopping as well. Apple also announced that its upcoming HomePod speaker will include automatic tuning to optimize for each and every room. You're still going to be digging through the cushions if the phone was silenced when you lost it.

The difference, it seems, is in how likely you are to want to use the speaker to listen to music. Google's speaker will hear you, and your smart light bulbs will dim.

"For example, if you order Tide PODS or Gatorade, your Google Assistant will let you know which size and type you previously ordered from Walmart, making it easy for you to buy the right product again", Sridhar Ramaswamy, Google's senior vice president of ads and commerce, wrote in an August blog post.
