One Google Home Device Is Sold Every Second: Google

Going by this, Google sold over 6.5 million Google Home devices. In fact, there will be a "Google Assistant Playground" to show off "new integrations, devices, and the newest ways you can use your Assistant".

"Google Home usage increased 9X this holiday season over last year's, as you controlled more smart devices, asked more questions, listened to more music, and tried out all the new things you can do with your Assistant on Google Home", added Scott Huffman, Vice President, Engineering, Google Assistant.

The tech giant now offers three Home devices - the original Home, the Home Max and the Home Mini. The Home Max started shipping to consumers in December 2017, so it may not account for the sales. In the same post, the company revealed that Google Assistant is "now available on more than 400 million devices, including speakers like Google Home, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, headphones, TVs, watches and more".

A recent study from Juniper Research found that smart speakers such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and the Sonos One will be installed in over 70 million USA households by 2022, reaching 55% of all homes. This is an intriguing statistic, but it doesn't really mean that people will stop using their smartphones when smart speakers become commonplace in every home. The company today has taken wraps off its large booth and unsurprisingly it is mostly focused on the Google Assistant.

Past year in November, Google rolled out an update, which allows the users to use Home speakers as intercom systems in the house. Google now has three Home products- Google Home, Google Home Mini, and the Google Home Max.
