Google has first announced its Google Home devices in the year 2016 and now it looks like Google is all ready to launch them in India. These devices are very anticipated here that some users have even imported them from overseas countries. This fresh information was disclosed during a communication session from the Redington India with its retail partners. Exact launch date and pricing information are not there, for more detailed facts let’s jump to the main course.
The devices Google currently have in its line-up is Google Home and Google Home Mini. They will compete directly with the Amazon’s Echo-series of devices. Recently Amazon has started selling their Echo devices in India. Now, we are excited to see that how these Google devices will perform against the Echo-series from Amazon. It is worth noting that still, users face communication issues with the Echo devices as they sometimes fail to understand the Indian dialects.
Whereas on the other hand in this department Google is ruling the market because last month they have rolled out Hindi support for the Google Assistant app. Some users have reported that Google Home posses an option of English(India) which is great and has been developed taking care of the consumers here.
According to us, Google will get a slight edge in the upcoming future as releasing Hindi support to Home-series devices can be a game-changing step. Although there are no official talks or revelation about it. No leaks or rumors are there in the market about the cost of these devices but considering the pricing of Echo devices, they might retail for a similar price in India.
At present, Echo Dot is priced at 4,499 INR, Echo for 9,999 INR and Echo Plus for a tag of 14,999 INR. For further information, we have to wait for the month of April 2018 in which the launch of these devices is expected.
