  • Google sold over 6 million Home speakers since mid-October

What will actually be in the playground is up for debate, though Google says you'll be able to "check out some of our new integrations, devices, and the newest ways you can use your Assistant", it will likely be similar to the pop-up Google Home Mini donut shops we saw prior to the launch.

Google Assistant is now available on 400 million devices, including more than 6 million Home smart speakers sold since the Home Mini first became available last October.

Google Home Mini was made to compete with Amazon's Echo Dot and began to sell October 19.

It's pretty easy to guess that the Home Mini was the most popular among the three since it was on sale for $29 throughout the holiday season. Amazon never gives out specific sales figures, but it did say that "tens of millions" of its own Alexa-enabled devices were sold over the holidays, with the Echo Dot being one of the top sellers.

In a post, Google recapped the "very big year" that was 2017 for Assistant.

The Google Assistant is accessible in eight different languages. So it's no wonder we've sold tens of millions of all our Google devices for the home over this previous year, Google stated this news in a blog post. It seems like all of the company's products can now be controlled using the Google Assistant, as everything runs through the Insteon Hub, which got support for Google Assistant, so no worries there. That is more or less, it, the company did not announce any new gadgets at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), at least not yet, but who knows, maybe they will at a later date, there's still plenty of time for them to do so. The company also mentioned that its products integrate with hundreds of products and systems out there, including HVAC units, timers, lighting, locks, cameras, music, humidity, garage doors, and so on.
