Google Assistant hits 1 billion devices and the war against Alexa is heating up

“However, it’s important to note that a not-insignificant chunk of those 1 billion devices includes Android smartphones that come with Google Assistant pre-installed” writes Karissa Bell for mashable.com. But most importantly, the company now has some serious bragging rights to back up its CES domination: Google Assistant is now on 1 billion devices, according to the company.That number, which includes smartphones, Google Home speakers, and other gadgets equipped with the assistant, is up from 500 million devices last May.Google raised some eyebrows at last year’s CES, when the company all but declared war on Amazon’s Alexa and other rivals.On paper, 1 billion devices looks like a huge win for the search giant, which has been racing to catch up to Amazon’s Alexa over the last two years.
