Google Assistant Will Soon Be Available on One Billion Devices

Sony Adds Alexa Support for WH-1000XM3 Headphones

Google has also worked to expand Assistant into other parts of the world. That's essentially how Alexa works with older Sonos speakers, so it would make sense to see the same thing happen with the Google Assistant.

According to VentureBeat, Samsung will be adding support for Google Maps, Google Play, YouTube, and Gmail, to Bixby 2.0.

Google has a competitive advantage over Amazon thanks to Android.

In an interview with The Verge, Google Assistant vice president Manuel Bronstein admitted "the largest footprint right now is on phones".

Apple shares dive; rare revenue warning drags global markets
Apple on Wednesday evening cut its revenue guidance for its crucial holiday quarter . Apple and the White House didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

Since it's launch Bixby has been struggling to find it's true identity: is it a device assistant?

Both Apple and Google have been trying to get people to buy their smart home speakers, but Amazon has sold way more devices in this category.

Google makes its voice assistant now also to the Translator and wants him to make, for example, at the time of Check-In in Hotels useful. We know that many are already using the Echo and Google Home devices for smart monitoring and usage and this ecosystem is expanding vastly. This total includes all devices that have Alexa built-in, and Amazon has opted not to reveal individual device sale data. Over the previous year, Google has added support for 22 new languages and 66 more countries, bringing the total to 30 languages and 80 countries. These TVs (with a few exceptions) all feature far-field microphones in the remotes, so that you can talk to the Google Assistant without needing to turn down the TV or your music in the room. When hosting its annual I/O event past year, a Google spokesperson said that Assistant was installed on 500 million devices, including smart speakers, smartphones, smart TVs, smartwatches and other smart devices.

No matter how you look at it, it's going to be a good year for connected devices. You can speak to Bixby with your Samsung TV remote control, however, not the others.
