Google Home

Google Home is the company’s answer to Amazon Echo – a voice-powered device that’s powered by the company’s own Assistant.

It’s a beautiful piece of hardware with the top housing four LEDs, which light up when it recognizes an “Okay, Google” command so you know it’s listening. Google Home boasts a microphone system with multiple mics for an accurate far-field voice recognition.
