Sold more than one Google Home device every second : Google

Amazon pioneered the phenomenon in 2014 with its Echo speaker range, before Google followed suit two years later with Home.

Google's statement implies that from October 19 to January 5, it sold at least 6.73 million Home speakers.

A recent study from Juniper Research found that smart speakers such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and the Sonos One will be installed in over 70 million US households by 2022, reaching 55% of all homes. Home Max was launched in mid-December at $399 -- so it's clear that it makes up a small portion f those million of sales. And with the start of CES in Las Vegas, we're in for more previews into the voice-activated Internet of Things universe. What we do know is that Google is likely to have sold somewhere in the region of 7m devices since October in total. The Assistant is now available on more than 400 million devices, including speakers like Google Home, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, headphones, TVs, watches and more. We're expecting the company to introduce more features for the United States market.

Prof Sir Muir Gray claims that virtual digital helpers, like Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant, could help pensioners stave off feelings of isolation.

With smartphone features, many of these home devices extend the convenience of a virtual assistant. It is also revealed that there are more than 1,500 compatible smart home devices from over 225 brands at the moment. Now with their ability to sync with other smart home devices, the benefits are clear. Though it's safe to say the the Home Mini is by far the most popular speaker for Google this holiday season.
