Google Home Mini has vaulted to the top spot in the global market for connected speakers, edging out a rival device from Amazon, a survey showed yesterday. Amazon Echo was in third, followed by Alibaba Tmall Genie in fourth and Google home in fifth. "And, all of that happens in less than thirty seconds", according to Amazon. That'll largely depend on the audio quality and for that, we'll have to wait and see how the sub performs in symphony with its Echo satellites.

As per the reports, Google is looking forward to expanding its Home smart speaker portfolio along with the launch of a new device called the Google Home Hub.

It seems like the Smart Plug will be used to control non-smart devices by voice or remotely via the Alexa app. You can also adjust the speaker's equaliser settings within the Amazon Alexa mobile app.

"There are dual, side-firing 2-inch Neodymium drivers; a passive bass radiator; and Dolby processing to deliver expansive stereo sound with deep, powerful lows and crisp highs, flawless for listening to your favorite music", Amazon said.

Echo Input. Amazon's answer to the Google Chromecast Audio is a small disc-shaped device that you can attach to any powered speakers.

Google Home Hub Features A 7-inch Touch Display; Comes With Google Assistant

As well as an update to the Echo Dot (which Amazon says is its most popular speaker) there's updated versions of the Echo Plus and Echo Show. Consumers will be able to order the device starting today, and Amazon will begin shipping it next month. It features a 100W, six-inch downward firing woofer that'll introduce a new level of depth to your Echo sound system.

If you have a Google Home, you'll already be aware of the talents Google Assistant has up its virtual sleeves. In order to compensate for the extra noise, the Echo Auto has an "eight-microphone array" that enables the device to hear your requests even when there's road noise, construction or music playing in the background. It's got improved sound, too, along with Bluetooth and 3.5mm connectivity so that you can connect another speaker to it.

Amazon has also boosted Alexa's short-term memory so that follow-up questions no longer require a wake word. That'll begin offering devices to customers later this year, priced at $29.99. "And you never have to worry about Daylight Savings with the Echo Wall Clock".

Finally, there's Echo Auto, an Echo device for your vehicle.
