Xiaomi Dips Its Toe In US Market with Smart Home Products
Xiaomi today said it will sell a handful of products in the U.S. in what marks an important step for the company. The three products in question, the Mi Bedside Lamp, Mi LED Smart Bulb, and Mi Smart Plug, are all powered by Google's smart home platform. All three can be controlled through voice commands via the Google Assistant on Google Home products. The move should give the company more visibility with U.S. consumers. In 2017, the company sold an Android TV product, and later a 360-degree camera, through Amazon. These are the first products with more direct support for Google and its core platform. Xiaomi expects the three smart home products to reach stores later this month. In March, Xiaomi said it intends to launch phones in the U.S. market as soon as this year, though it has made similar statement in the past.
