Surprise! Google May Make Its Own Smart Display

Google faced new backlash for showing a plain homepage on Easter Sunday yet again

International Business Times India Edition contacted Google's media representative via email for a response on Home smart speaker and mid-range Pixel phones launch in India but she refused to divulge any details at the moment.

As indicated by a report, the Google Home speakers are set to make their presentation in the Indian market that is gradually moving towards adopting smart speakers.

The company has started sending out invites to an April 10 event, where it's expected to launch a Hindi-language version of its Google Home smart speaker and its premium Pixelbook laptop. In 2016, the Google Home was the first Assistant smart speaker announced at I/O and debuted later that fall. In the U.S., the Google Home Mini ships for $49 (around Rs. 3,200) and the Google Home ships for $129 (around Rs. 8,500).

Like Amazon, Google insisted that their Google Home devices did not invade user privacy, and that "Prospective product announcements should not necessarily be inferred from our patent applications". Google Home Mini is available in three colour options of chalk, charcoal and coral. The Amazon Echo is priced around Rs. 9,999 and the Echo Dot is priced around Rs. 4,500. Just like the Home and the Home Mini, Amazon Echo comes with a smart assistant. Its connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n/ac, and a DC power jack.

A new month and as we've come to expect from Google over the years, a new software update is out for the Pixel duo of 2017.

The company may also launch Google WiFi in the country.

With Chromecast support, you can also stream content from different services like Netflix and HBO.

If you have noticed, the company has increased marketing efforts around the Pixel smartphones, but that hasn't been as effective as one would have expected.

The tech giant-and world's largest advertising platform-also outlined how a smart-home system with a camera could potentially recognize objects in one's home, like a basketball or guitar, and serve up a related advertisement, in a separate 2015 patent filing.
