Finally the push for Google Assistant to be placed in a new devices is happening. We’re approaching the one-year mark of Google Home being on the market, and Google still hasn’t seen its artificial intelligence technology gain widespread traction like Amazon’s. That appears to be changing near the end of 2017 and into the new year as, at IFA 2017 in Berlin, Google announced new Assistant-ready hardware from its partners.
Let’s see what the new devices are from Panasonic, Mobvoi, and Anker.
Now it’s looking even more likely Google plans on going all-in on hardware. Later this year, the company could enter a new product category with Google Assistant being the backbone of the device. It’s yet another sign that Google wants to be involved in both hardware and software moving forward.
