Google took to the stage at Google I/O this year to discuss new features in store for Google Home, the company’s smart home device designed to let you use Google Assistant for more than just smartphone capabilities. While announcing new features such as the addition of Bluetooth music streaming, hands-free calling, multi-user support, and Visual Responses such as your calendar schedule for the week displayed on your Android TV, the search engine giant also announced that new countries would see the launch of Google Home in their respective places.
Google Home has already landed in the United Kingdom as of April, but among the fortunate places to expand Google Home’s reach is its northern brother, Canada.
Google said Google Home would arrive in Canada this summer, and the company is right on schedule with a new date, June 26th, being suggested as the intended time of arrival.
In addition to a new specific date, Google has brought pre-orders to Canada, with Google Home available for pre-order from the Google Store as well as Best Buy. The device has already picked up 50 million users (for the Google Home app download count, anyway), so Google Home is worth considering if you own a Pixel or Pixel XL and love Google Assistant.
Google Home will cost $179 CAD (Canadian Dollars), which converts to the $129 USD retail price in the US.
