Internet search giant


is set to launch a new

smart speaker

in the Nest brand, according to a report by 9to5Goole. The report cites sources familiar with the matter and says that the upcoming device will sport a familiar design that will “fit in nicely” with the fabric-oriented designs of the Nest Mini, Nest Hub, etc,
As per the report, the soon to be launched device bears a code name ‘Prince’ and doesn’t offer a display and will be capable enough to place it somewhere between the original

Google Home

and the Google Home Max.
Just as the other smart speakers from Google, this too will come powered with

Google Assistant

with all the AI-centric features we get to see right now. Right now, there is no official date or name for the expected

Google smart speaker

. We also have to wait and see whether or not the product will make its way to India.
Just last month, a report by Strategy Analytics revealed that in the first quarter of 2020, Google ranked at the second position in the global smart speakers market by capturing 19.3%. The company witnessed a growth as it had a 17.9% in Q1 2019.
The market, however, was led by Jeff Bezos-led Amazon that emerged as the market leader with a 23.5% share, up from 21.5% in the same period a year ago.
Overall, the global smart speakers market sales crossed 28.2 million units in the first quarter of 2020, according to the report, which is 8.2% higher than the sale in Q1 2019.
