    Today, Google announced the $129 Google Home connected speaker, a competitor to Amazon’s $149 Echo speaker and Alexa virtual assistant. It combines Google Cast audio compatibility with far-field voice recognition and always-on access to Google Assistant, the company’s successor to Google Now. As a Wi-Fi connected speaker, Google Home can receive audio via Google Cast, features full-range drivers with dual passive radiators, has a capacitive control surface on top, and has six different options for its interchangeable bases. A multiple microphone array and far-field voice recognition allows users to initiate Google Assistant from across a room, via the familiar “Ok Google” phrase.

    Google announced the new, $69 Chromecast Ultra, the 4K Ultra HD-capable successor to the company’s original hit $35 Chromecast HDMI dongle. Like its predecessor, the Chromecast Ultra supports the Google Cast standard, and requires a separate device such as a tablet or smartphone to initiate and control media playback. The Ultra features faster performance (1.8x faster content loading than Chromecast), improved Wi-Fi throughput to handle 4K content, HDR10 and Dolby Vision support, and Ethernet connection capability. Chromecast Ultra will be available at retail in November 2016, with Google Play Movies expected to release 4K content at the same time.
