Google Home, Home Mini India Launch Set for April 10


Google Pixel is a flagship device from the tech giant and if the rumours are to be believed Google might soon introduce the Mid-range Pixel Phone along with some other budget category devices. Well, here's good news for you! The mid-range Pixel smartphone could land in India by the end of second quarter of 2018, as the next Pixel flagship will hit the market in October.

Just today, we heard that Google is planning to bring its smart speakers, the Home and the Home Mini, to India this month. A leading retailer revealed that Google will be expanding its product portfolio in India along with Reliance Jio 4G and other mobile operators to realize the maximum potential of its products.

Google, in its study on Pixel phones' sales in India, found that there was very little difference in margin in terms of units sold between online and offline channels.

Google Home and Home Mini smart speakers are powered by the company's AI-based Assistant. A number of Google Home devices in various rooms can work together, for example playing the same music throughout the house. The compact and affordable speaker was launched previous year in October. The mini version of Google Home was launched last October in the United States and is priced at $49 (Rs 3,200 approximately). In 2016, the Google Home was the first Assistant smart speaker announced at I/O and debuted later that fall. Amazon's series of smart speakers include the Echo Dot, Echo and Echo Plus priced at Rs 4,499, Rs 9,999 and Rs 14,999 respectively.

Third, the speakers have also received a Voice Match option when Home Mini's language was switched to English (India).
