Google Assistant is Coming to New Connected Speakers and Appliances

Google Assistant Is Coming to a Bunch of New Speakers

It's just as powerful as Google Home and any other Google Assistant-powered device, but it's small and portable and costs less than $100. Anker is also behind the Alexa-enabled Eufy Genie, which retails for under $35.

Google announced its new partnership with Anker, Mobvoi, and Panasonic.

Google Assistant launched less than a year ago, but Google's entry into the digital companion race is planning to expand its reach into more third-party products.

Competition is at an all time high for placing a smart speaker on a desk, our countertop, and in our homes.

Smart speakers use always-listening microphones to detect their trigger word, then process and reply to voice commands in natural language.

The Zolo Mojo arrives in late October for $70.

Qatari ambassador resumes mission in Iran after 20-month hiatus
Doha has been receiving fresh food supplies from the Iran, which has also allowed Qatar's national carrier to use its airspace. The retaliatory move came just 24 hours after the central African state announced it was closing Qatar's embassy in N'Djamena.

At IFA in Berlin, Google is announcing some of the newest products to include Google Assistant, or Google Assistant support.

Major appliances will be rolling out soon with Google Assistant support as well. An Anker representative said the Zolo Mojo speaker will have all the same functionality as the Home except for the ability to make phone calls, but that the company expects to add that feature before the end of the year. It features one 8cm woofer with dual voice coils, and two 20mm soft dome tweeters.

The GA10 from Panasonic is scheduled to be released in early 2018.

Alongside the speakers, Google is also announcing that the Assistant is able to integrate with some of LG's home appliances. They also all support multi-room audio and can be paired to Google Homes and Chromecast.

Additionally he stated that Panasonic's existing relationship with Google made them a more natural partner for a first smart speaker.

There's not much information known about the three speakers announced, the Mobvoi TicHome Mini will be splashproof with a 6-hour battery life and available in 5 colours. That means they will be able to say things like "OK Google, wash my clothes", "OK Google, start vacuuming", "OK Google, are my clothes clean?" or "OK Google, is the laundry done?". Alexa can already control other appliances, including robotic vacuums.
