Google is preparing an Amazon Echo Show competitor
Perhaps it was only a matter of time, but rumours indicate Google is preparing to launch a competitor to the Amazon Echo Show.
TechCrunch reports hearing from multiple sources that Google is building a smart home device with a screen. Like with the Echo Show, this would allow the device to display useful information visually such as the weather forecast.
Amazon has left itself somewhat vulnerable in this space with the Echo Show often seen as having the right idea, but with a lackluster execution.
