Google Home

Google's counterpart to Amazon's Echo. Announced in 2016, Home is a virtual assistant and wireless speaker that streams music via Google Play Music. Home can be used to control lights and other household devices and also connect to other Home speakers in different rooms. Like Echo, Home is a stand-alone device located in a convenient place in the home. Google Home is one of the first Google products to use Google Assistant, the evolution of Google Now.

Home Mini and Max
In 2017, Google introduced a smaller, less expensive Home Mini and a larger, more expensive Home Max. All models have the same virtual assistant features with the primary difference being sound quality. See Amazon Echo and Google Assistant.


The Google Home
The Home sits almost anywhere in the room, but does require AC power. Although the original Home offered decent sound quality, the smaller Mini and larger Max offer more choices.
