Google today made its Amazon Echo competitor, Google Home, available for preorder. Google Home is powered by the Google Assistant. The device resembles a Bluetooth speaker, and in fact contains a speaker for playing music. The Assistant, which is also baked into the new Pixel smartphones from Google, is able to help people with a wide number of queries and tasks. For example, people can ask Google Home to play tunes from third-party music services like Spotify, YouTube Music, Pandora, and others; to perform language translations or math conversions; check commuting times or the weather; and much more. Further, it interacts with Google-owned Nest products for controlling in-home thermostats and security cameras. The Google Home can be preordered from Google's web site. The Home costs $129. People can customize their Google Home with swappable bases for $20 each. Google Home ships in November.
