Google Takes On Amazon, Lenovo In Smart Display Space

Google Home Hub Features A 7-inch Touch Display; Comes With Google Assistant

As well as revealing the new products, Amazon gave a rundown of how it has developed Alexa over the last four years since it launched. The product pages, which were spotted by Pocket-Lint before Amazon took them down (via Engadget), seem to show details of the Echo Sub subwoofer and the Amazon Smart Plug.

Set to cost $49.99, the device is specially designed for use in automobiles which are typically louder than your home.

You can hang Alexa up on the wall now in the form of a $30 wall clock. The device is listed as having improved smart speaker capabilities than the current Google Home speakers. This real-time OS is created to open up "incredibly quickly", so that you can get going with Alexa without having to wait in the garage.

Jorrit Van der Meulen, vice president of Amazon devices worldwide, said: "We want you to have access to Alexa everywhere - in your kitchen, in your living room, in your office, and more". All these will be coming as a part of a free software update. The Wall Clock will set you back by $29.99.

For parents, Alex can start getting kids to bed with "Routines for Kids". It's also adding a combination of commands. The market researcher says about 12 million smart speakers like the Amazon Echo shipped in the April through June period. That consists of a dev board and back-end services to make building connected devices easier.

Dave Limp, senior vice president of Amazon Devices introduced the products in a surprise announcement at its headquarters at The Seattle Spheres, according to the company's live blog. This is also for the first time that pictures of the upcoming Google Home Hub have been leaked showing off the complete design of the smart speaker.

Still, the market for voice-activated speakers pales in comparison with smartphones, where most people interact, according to Strategy Analytics. There's not enough time for the Cupertino company to release a new, cheaper version of the smart speaker before the holiday season, so Apple will need to drop the price on the existing Homepod in order to compete.

As per an exclusive report by MySmartPrice, the Google Home Hub will have a 7-inch touchscreen mounted to a giant speaker base which is reminiscent of the Google Home Max, albeit a tad less powerful.
