Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) published a new report today from its latest "home automation devices" study that shows Amazon and its Echo products with a 76 percent USA market share, compared to 24 percent for Google and its Google Home device.
With Amazon's smart assistant Alexa built in, the smart glasses are tipped to not need earphones or regular speakers, instead, will utilise bone-conduction technology allowing users to hear Alexa's voice. The company will also hit a new product Fire TV to the market that would come with set-top-box having an integrated echo speaker.
The leaks paint a picture of a company doubling down on its biggest tech success since the launch of the Kindle. According to Ninety7, it can provide up to eight hours of wireless use for your Google Home.
"Owners listen to music most on both Echo and Home, at least once a day or more often", said Mike Levin, CIRPs co-founder. Its maker, Ninety7 is back with two new devices not only for the Amazon Echo but also for Google Home. "They also use them frequently for information, like asking about the weather or sports scores, as well as setting timers and alarms". Amazon Echo acquires a major share of 76 percent in the USA market while Google Home takes away the remaining, says CIRP.
Mueller casts broad net in requesting extensive records from Trump White House
The allegation of criminality was lobbed at Trump after Comey said that he had been pressured to end the investigation into Flynn. CNN later confirmed that Mueller's office has interviewed Rosenstein as part of its Russian Federation probe.
The Echo was launched in the U.S. in November 2014, and was slowly rolled out to the United Kingdom and Germany over the next two years. At the IFA 2017, we witnessed the first portable smart speaker with Google Assistant - Mobvoi TicHome Mini. The Dox is made especially for the Amazon Echo Dot while the Loft is exclusively for the Google Home.
But smartglasses are a product category that might still be a cure in search of a problem.
It added that the glasses could be released before the end of the year.
