Google has been hard at work increasing the number of devices supported by its Assistant as it fights to control the smart home. Competing for the smart home is clearly near the top of Google’s priorities as those interactions move away from smartphones. Once a consumer is invested in an ecosystem, it’s difficult to get them to switch. Google’s main competitor is Amazon with their Alexa ecosystem. Amazon, quite likely as a result of its retail presence, has sold a lot more of its Echo line of products to customers.
