Google says it sold over 6 million Home speakers since mid-October

While Google is claiming to have sold millions of Home speakers, it didn't give a breakdown of how those sales were split between the Home, the Home Mini, and the Home Max. Google will be showcasing its products at CES this week in Las Vegas. We already know that Google has three variants of speakers - the Home, the Home Mini and the Home Max. It was up for sale at just $29 during sale days in early December.

Further, the company also said that since the Google Home Mini started shipping in October 2017, more than one Google Home device was sold every second for the remainder of the year. That's not a small number by any means. Alexa and Google lead the market at the moment, but Apple, Sonos, LG and even Facebook will soon have something more to say about that. However, it did not reveal the sales figures for the individual devices. This is the first time, Google is having a major presence on the show floor and most of it seems to be centred on the Assistant.

In the USA though, the company is adding more and more features to the Google Assistant. Amazon pioneered the phenomenon in 2014 with its Echo speaker range, before Google followed suit two years later with Home.


To date, the voice-controlled Assistant is now compatible with over 1,500 smart home devices from over 225 different leading brands.

With smartphone features, many of these home devices extend the convenience of a virtual assistant. If you find a device that works in your smart home - you can purchase the item through The GearBrain, to help make your buying experience easier. Recently, it was reported Google is selling the Home Mini in losses as the overall cost of making a single Home Mini is more than $35.
