It appears that shipments for the new Google Home device have started for readers. Multiple readers have either emailed or commented on Google+ of receiving shipment notifications of the $129 Google Assistant-powered device. I too have received a shipment notification with it expected to arrive at the end of the week.
Aimed at competing with the Amazon Echo, Google Home brings the power of Google Artificial Intelligence to give you detailed information about your day, upcoming events, search information, travel information and the like. While it is for everyone in the family, it tied to a single primary Google account. Like Google OnHub, Home is aimed at sitting out in the open and doesn’t look like a piece of techno-kit sitting on a shelf.
