In place of employing 5–10 gadgets to run their lives, users have returned with the requirement that needs one sole device to carry out all of the essential activities.”
“Google Home is that incorporated gadget,” he claimed to the media. He further stated, “On behalf of the home automation sector, we are majorly beginning off right now. It is originally quite small, and how the segment will scale up is mainly dependent on how we work with brands and partners such as Google.”
