Google Home deliveries transcended from Amazon Echo




Analyst: Google Home deliveries transcended from Amazon Echo in early 2018 Google delivered more Home speakers in the first quarter of 2018 than Amazon did from its Echo speakers. In China and South Korea in particular, smart speakers are growing rapidly. That is what analyst firm Canalys claims after research.

According to Canalys , the worldwide delivery of smart speakers in the first quarter rose by 210 percent compared to last year, to 9 million units. The market for smart speakers thus remains the fastest growing segment for consumer electronics.

Google accounted for 3.2 million of the 9 million copies, while Amazon followed with 2.5 million delivered Echo speakers. It is the first time that the Home deliveries exceed those of the Echo. Canalys did not publish figures on the deliveries of third-party products that have integrated the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Apple delivered about 600,000 HomePod speakers in a month and a half, claiming earlier research .

In South Korea and China in particular, the speakers are becoming popular. In China, Alibaba’s Tmall Genie speaker in particular is popular, but Xiaomi’s Xiao AI supplies are increasing. With 4.1 million models supplied, the US is still the largest market, but worldwide the country’s share of total deliveries has fallen to less than 50 percent. Figures on Europe are not known, but it is that South Korea with 730,000 delivered models has overtaken the United Kingdom in terms of deliveries.
