In fact, there will be a "Google Assistant Playground" to show off "new integrations, devices, and the newest ways you can use your Assistant". So it's no wonder we've sold tens of millions of all our Google devices for the home over this past year, Google stated this news in a blog post. The Google Home Mini has US$26 worth of components with it priced at $29 at a discount. Home Max was launched in mid-December at $399 -- so it's clear that it makes up a small portion f those million of sales.

One of the biggest holiday shopping season is behind us, and Google seems to be proud of how well its products performed since mid-October. 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".

Looking to 2018, Google promises that it has "more things in store for the Assistant" at CES. Recently, Google added features such as Voice Match, Broadcast and Hands-Free Calling to the Google Assistant for Home devices. This likely had something to do with why the Echo took so long to gain mass market appeal: While Amazon announced the device in 2014, it took more than two years for people to begin adopting it in earnest. It is also revealed that there are more than 1,500 compatible smart home devices from over 225 brands at the moment. Also, users can remotely control smart devices. Amazon pioneered the phenomenon in 2014 with its Echo speaker range, before Google followed suit two years later with Home.
