Now it is uncertain whether the Alphabet-owned firm particularly utilizes the two devices for Indian consumers like Amazon worked when it started some of its Echo-branded providing to India last fall. So, Google Home speakers have a definite advantage over Echo with Hindi language support in India. The company also has access to the search data and might have found that Indians are interested in having a speaker based smart assistant at their home.

If you have noticed, the company has increased marketing efforts around the Pixel smartphones, but that hasn't been as effective as one would have expected.

It's unclear whether Google plans to bring its cheaper Pixels worldwide, or if it'll be limited to India. Amazon is in the first position with the Alexa-powered Echo range of smart speakers, followed by Google with the Google Assistant-powered Home speakers. These speakers can be controlled through voice commands.
