We've built a way to answer those questions: The GearBrain - a compatibility checker designed for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, displaying every smart device that works with either of the leading smart speaker assistants. With all these choices, you've connected millions of new smart home devices to Google Home every month. Google also reported the Home usage increased by 9 times during the holiday season, maybe from everyone at home trying to show their friends their new toy. The Home Max started shipping to consumers in December 2017, so it may not account for the sales.

Own a Google Home or Home Mini and want to find smart lights you can run with just your voice? We've had our eyes on the full list since it was published in October, and just a couple of days ago it was updated with 35 additions.

The Google further said, 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.

Furthermore Google pointed out that they would be revealing more features and future of Google Assistant in 2018 at the CES 2018.

"As we've added more features-like Voice Match, Broadcast and Hands-Free Calling-the Google Assistant have become even more helpful". This likely had something to do with why the Echo took so long to gain mass market appeal: While Amazon announced the device in 2014, it took more than two years for people to begin adopting it in earnest. Also, users can remotely control smart devices.

With that in mind, the number of smart home companies that support Assistant/Home either directly or through Actions on Google is now over 200.
