You might have heard about Google I/O, the 3 days developer conference was held this week by Google in San Francisco.
One of the biggest announcements of these sessions was the release of a new home assistant for the end of this year : Google Home.
The small cylinder seems to be the perfect answer to the famous Amazon Echo. First of all, Google Home is a voice assistant. It will be possible to link Google Home to Nest thermostats to control the room temperature or to Chromecast to control your TV. Like the Echo, it is also a speaker : you will be able to easily integrate it in your multi-room audio system.
However, the device is not portable and it is not expected to be compatible with all devices and services on the market. Let’s hope that it will keep its promises!
