We've built a way to answer those questions: The GearBrain - a compatibility checker designed for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, displaying every smart device that works with either of the leading smart speaker assistants.

With Google Home Mini and Google Home Max in addition to our original Google Home, we brought you even more ways to use the Assistant in your home.

Google's statement implies that from October 19 to January 5, it sold at least 6.73 million Home speakers.

For those who've received an Echo or Google Home as a gift this season, you've got a new, useful way to learn information, control smart home accessories, and play music in your abode. They have been selling like insane and no one really knew at what rate until Google just let us know.

The tech giant now offers three Home devices - the original Home, the Home Max and the Home Mini. Home Max was launched in mid-December at $399 -- so it's clear that it makes up a small portion f those million of sales. This also saw the tech giant introduced its Assistant AI to more than 400m devices, including Google Home, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, headphones, TVs, watches, and more.

Amazon and Google are expected to remain in the lead with their Echo and Home products respectively, but will face increased competition as new vendors enter the race.

Following blockbuster holiday sales, it's official: Smart speakers are the new best-selling consumer gadget. The feature is now available in the US, Australia, Canada and the UK.

Despite tasting success in the U.S. and Western Europe, China will continue to elude the two smart speaker giants, Amazon and Google.

Looking to 2018, Google promises that it has "more things in store for the Assistant" at CES.
