Google considers launching a mid-range Pixel phone this summer

Google is all set to launch Google Home smart speakers in India this month. The most likely launch dates are supposed to be April 9 or April 10.

Last year, 9to5Mac reported that Google was working on a budget version of its Pixel smartphone, which wouldn't be sold in the US.

In an interview with Variety, Google vice president Rishi Chandra, who oversees Google's smart home products, said that the company having its own smart display coexist with similar third-party products would be a similar strategy as with its current smart home speakers.

Gadgets states that the Google Home and Home Mini are finally set to arrive in India in April.

The Home Mini, on the other hand, was launched in October 2017 alongside the Home Max.

Google Home has expanded functionality that now allows you to preset a series of functions that get triggered by a single command.

As far as Amazon's launch is considered, it is sure to give tough competition and a run for its money to Google. The report however does mention that the speakers still don't allow you to interact with these apps using voice yet. If Google can price its Home Mini speaker smartly under Rs. 3,000, it can easily beat Echo Dot and some of the other smart speakers in the same price range. The company also has access to the search data and might have found that Indians are interested in having a speaker based smart assistant at their home.

Different from Amazon, Google is understood to be planning a quick full-fledged commercial start of its intelligent speakers in the country and will omit extended betas.

Google also has a Home speaker tuned for powerful and better sound quality called Home Max but it seems that this speaker will not be launching in India for now. "His new movie is playing in a theater near you".

Talking about the Google Home smart speaker, it cannot only play music but also assist the users in various tasks and also answer questions through voice commands.
