Google Home is currently your go-to smart speaker that allows Google Assistant experience to the fullest. Now, Google is planning to grow OK Google's business connections by introducing the virtual assistant to more third-party smart speakers on the market.
Google Home is a compact smart speaker that is integrated with Google Assistant, your very own personal assistant or your chat buddy, whichever way you look at it. Virtual assistants are essentially modern day "genies" that get things done for you without ever uttering the typical "your wish is my command, master" catchphrase.
Google Home is not the only smart speaker available in the market though. There's the Amazon Echo, and reportedly Apple will be launching its HomePod speaker soon. Samsung is also working on its own smart speaker powered by Bixby voice assistant. Making the Google Assistant available to more third-party smart speakers may work in Google's favor in the ever-expanding smart speaker market.
One of the earliest third-party smart speakers to be powered by Google Assistant will include the Anker Zolo Mojo, which looks more or less like a cylindrical Google Home speaker. The Anker Zolo Mojo is headed to IFA 2017 and will go on sale sometime in late October. The other third party speakers which will get Google Assistant include the Panasonic GA10 and the TicHome Mini whose launch is likely to be in the offing.
The Google Assistant will also be integrated with LG Electronics' line-up smart home appliances, making it easier for consumers to check the status of their laundry and dishes.
