Announced on May 18, 2016 during Google I/O, Google Home is a smart speaker that incorporates the new Google Assistant for helping to make your everyday tasks easier. Google Home can stream music, get an Uber, make dinner reservations, answer questions, work in conjunction with your phone and even turn on your TV.
Using Google Assistant, Google Home engages in a two-way conversation with the user, allowing you to ask questions and follow-up questions. "What movies are playing tonight?" can be followed with "Okay, book a ticket."
Google Home is available now at Best Buy and the Google Store.
