Did Google’s Smart Home Ambitions Come To Fruition In 2018?
In Google Home Hub’s display, you will see shortcuts for all popular tasks. On the Google Home app, you will see a room-by-room breakdown of the compatible gadgets. Controls help in grouping the devices together, offering the user a more seamless experience. Google intended Google Home to catch up to the success of Amazon’s Alexa but it was not until 2018 that Google took actual strides in this space. Amazon’s range of smart products have dominated the market and every company is trying to capitalize on the same by creating their own version. Google partnered with a few third-parties last year.
The search giant didn't actually announce any Google-branded products or notable features, but a handful of smart displays with Google Assistant built in headlined a host of third-party products that would expand the depth and versatility of the Google Home line-up.
Google released new features like Continued Conversation, Pretty Please, and Routines. Google wins over Alexa in the intelligence factor. Google’s Duplex was so realistic that hardly anyone knew it was a bot! Most of Google’s third-party devices are made well and with good functionalities. The competition between Google and Alexa is inspiring both of them to be more creative than ever.
