At the time of the announcement, Google announced the availability of Assistant on the following three speakers - IP67 water resistant Mobvoi TicHome Mini for $100, Anker's yet-to-be-launched ZoloMojo and the Panasonic GA10. And in the coming weeks and months, the smart voice assistant will be ready on more smart home devices and speakers. As of Friday 25 August, Apple users in the UK, Germany and France can install Google's answer to Siri for free.
Google Home is not the only smart speaker available in the market though. For one, LG is set to introduce more products that will support the Google Assistant so you can tell your washing machine, vacuum, or dryer to start and do its thing via a smart speaker or mobile device.
Google has announced that Google Assistant is heading to third-party speakers later this year. It's as easy as "Ok Google, start vacuuming". It'll be available in either black or white.

He added: " I have seen players with tears running down their face because the manager had a go at them and they can't take it . We didn't go into the house but chose to drive off into the night, we had no idea where we were going".
You get an Echo Dot-like design with buttons on top as well as a strap to easily carry the TicHome Mini with you everywhere. Rather than just using Alexa or Google Assistant, LG has its own Deep ThinQ intelligent voice platform that ties into its SmartThinQ Hub, which then controls other smart devices that utilize the Zigbee protocol, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Google followed suit earlier this year by making the Google Assistant SDK available to developers, and we're now starting to see the first thrid-party products powered by Google Assistant.
Google also said in its post that there are "more than 70 home automation manufacturers" (e.g., Honeywell), now compatible with Google Assistant.
"The partnership between Google and Mobvoi has opened up opportunities to combine Google's industry-leading Google Assistant with Mobvoi's vision for a portable home assistant form factor", Zhifei Li, CEO and founder of Mobvoi, said in a statement.
