It was 2016 when the presentation of Google Home, the first smart speaker from the Mountain View company, took place. Since then, both the design and the performance of the device have remained intact, and everything indicates that Google is about to renew it.
This has been indicated by rumors in recent weeks, which ensure that the Big G is working on a new Google Home with an improved sound in order to stand up to Apple’s HomePod. The new device would be added to the Nest smart speaker catalog, along with the Nest Mini and the Nest Hub, and its distinctive feature would be good sound quality.
This is a much-needed update if Google wants to keep up with the competition. Amazon maintains a wide range of speakers with Alexa that is improving periodically, while Apple has the powerful HomePod. Because of this, the sound quality of Amazon and Apple devices is much better than that offered by Google.
