Google has decided to enter the smart home market with its not-so-recent acquisition of Nest and most recently at Google I/O with the announcement of Google Home. A recent report from The Information says that Google has forgotten to mention one detail about Google’s recent home assistant.

The report claims that one of the developers of the product has direct knowledge that the device is actually an enclosure with lots of components: microphones, a speaker, and Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights that are all built around the hardware of a Chromecast.

The Chromecast’s micro computing capabilities proved to be hugely successful in the home theater space. With the correct software optimization, high quality components and materials, Google Home has the opportunity to be just as successful as Amazon’s Echo. Google’s Home assistant, though, would be a better match for Android’s Google Now Assistant and the ever expanding capabilities of a simple Google search.

After all, voice commands are processed mostly through servers which create sense of the phrase once it has been uploaded. Using a Chromecast would be beneficial to both Google and the customer becautilize it recommends Google Home may be srecent at a lower price than the Amazon Echo (currently going for $179 in the US), and Google can haged development costs low by using existing hardware.
