With all these choices, you've connected millions of new smart home devices to Google Home every month. We already know that Google has three variants of speakers - the Home, the Home Mini and the Home Max.

Amazon and Google are expected to remain in the lead with their Echo and Home products respectively, but will face increased competition as new vendors enter the race. It was up for sale at just $29 during sale days in early December. It is now available on 400 million devices, "including speakers like Google Home, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, headphones, TVs, watches and more".

Meanwhile Amazon, Google's main rival in the smart speaker space has not revealed exactly how many Echo smart speakers it has sold but it pegged the number of its competing Echo Dot sales in the millions, according to Businessinsider.com. In India though, we get limited features, and it's also disappointing that the company is yet to announce a Google Home product in the Indian 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. Now with their ability to sync with other smart home devices, the benefits are clear.

Voice controlled home assistants have been making their way into households over the past few years and the trend will continue in 2018.

Apart from this, the Google Assistant for Home has some more features such as reminders, asking to play/pause music, etc.

Google in November rolled out an update that will allow you to use Home speakers as intercom systems in your house. Though it's safe to say the the Home Mini is by far the most popular speaker for Google this holiday season.
