Google Home and Home Mini Speakers Finally Coming to India

Search engine giant Google is reportedly chalking out an India-focused strategy to tap the lucrative smartphone market and also the emerging IoT (Internet-of-Things) market. Google India has tweeted earlier today that the speakers are coming soon without confirming the launch date.

Google introduced its Google Home smart speaker back in October 2016 and the Home Mini was introduced in October past year.

Furthermore, a report by ET revealed that Google is planning to launch a cheaper Pixel smartphone in emerging markets like India. In the United States, the Google Home expenses $129, approximately, Rs 8,500, while the Home Mini speaker is evaluated at $49, which approximately means Rs 3,200.

Moreover, while the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are now priced at ₹61,000 and ₹73,000 respectively, the mid-range Pixel should be priced lower.

The company will supposedly expand its presence when it comes to distribution channels, focusing on neighborhood mobile phone stores which accounted for 36% of Pixel sales in India.

The trick here is that Google Home devices are just using Bluetooth to funnel music from its connected streaming services to the Bluetooth speaker.

He was seen in another directly addressing members of Red Velvet, which commands more than 4.6 million followers on Instagram. In a second concert by the K-pop stars on Tuesday, they will be joined on stage by several North Korean performers.

Months before Assistant smart displays were announced at CES 2018, we heard rumors that Google was working on its own device. "His new movie is playing in a theater near you".

Google is all set to launch its Google Home and Google Home Mini smart speakers in India on April 10.

Google already has a footprint in India, thanks to its Android Go and Android One schemes, which stick its operating system on a bunch of budget handsets (think £60 and under) from the likes of Nokia, Alcatel, and Huawei, among others.

Details are positively scarce, but supposedly this mid-range Pixel would launch sometime in July or April, ahead of a late-October refresh for the main Pixel lineup.

Now it is uncertain whether the Alphabet-owned firm particularly utilizes the two devices for Indian consumers like Amazon worked when it started some of its Echo-branded providing to India last fall.

Google's streaming devices, Chromecast and Chromecast Audio, are already in the country.
