Google Home was US-only for a long period of time after its launch last year, but recently it’s been making its way to other countries – if very slowly. We’ve already seen it land in the UK and Canada, and its next target is Australia.
It will go on sale down under on July 20 for AUD 199. You’ll find it at the Google Store, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, The Good Guys, Telstra, Optus, and Qantas Store. On the same day the Google Wifi will debut in Australia too, priced at AUD 199 for one unit, or AUD 499 for a three-pack. This device will be available at the Google Store, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, and Officeworks.
Next month, Google Home will arrive in Germany, where it will retail for 149. The price is the same as in France, unsurprisingly. It will be out on August 8 at MediaMarkt, Saturn, mobilcom-debitel, Conrad, Cyberport, Tink, EP, Medimax, and Otto, alongside the Google Store of course. The built-in Google Assistant will support German as you’d expect, letting you talk to it, ask it questions, and issue commands for various smart home devices.
