  • Amazon smartspeaker sales down while Google grew

Google has prepared 3 million Smart Display units for shipping by Christmas, taking the fight for voice activated screens to Amazon and Alibaba during the peak sales period.

Why it matters: Google is preparing to fill out its Google Home range of smart speakers this holiday season with a new model equipped with a display.

But that could change in the very near future. Now, according to a report from Nikkei Asian Review, Google is planning to announce another Smart Display-made by Google itself.

From the report, it's indicated that Google intends to ship around 3 million Smart Display units, which actually comes off as rather aggressive. While this is encouraging for Google, it should also be noted the entry of mainstream brands will also erode this market share and present a much sterner challenge, as consumers find comfort in the familiar. Lenovo launched one of these smart display solutions powered by Android Things and Snapdragon 625 platform joining JBL and LG, which believe that this is the market to grown in the second half of 2018 and going forward. Majorly, Amazon is the biggest competitor, this is why company decided to make their own Google Smart Displays.

Google is already investing millions of dollars on third parties to make smart speakers with displays. It will need to be priced below $200 and function more like a tablet than an Echo Show, plus provide great sound. We can call them the smart display which is easy to use for looking information, watching videos and following recipes in the kitchen.


A touch screen will also allow for better interaction with the results that the assistant provides.

As of now, as specified, Google offers the Home, Home Mini, and the Home Max, which offers rivalry to Amazon's Echo, Echo Dot, and Apple's HomePod individually.

Facebook is additionally rumored to be getting into this market with a pair of smart speakers set to launch later this year.

We will have to wait till October to find out what Google has in store for us, and if this report is true.
