Google to take on Amazon with Echo Show competitor code named Manhattan

According to the reports, Google is working on its Assistant powered home speaker with a display just like the Amazon Alexa Show. The device is codenamed Manhattan and will be around the same size as the competition, ie Echo Show which is around inches.
In addition to all the functionalities of the Google Assistant, it will offer Youtube, Photos, and video calling services. This will be done to create some difference between this and the Google Home. It will also serve as a smart hub just like the previous device did.

The device is said to be powered by Android which will make developing apps for it a bit easier. It is also rumoured to run apps like Netflix. But that’s just a rumour right now.

If it will be as good as the Amazon Show or even the Google home only the time will tell. You can already do whatever the Manhattan will do already on your smartphone, tablet or even a Smart TV. A cheap Google chromecast can turn your TV into a smart speaker with the display.

If that’s the point and the Manhattan doesn’t bring anything new to the market then there will be no point in even selling it. Especially the price point it will come with compared to the Google Home. This lets us believe that there will be more to Google Home than what we know right now.

So what do you think about the latest offering by Google? Let us know in the comments down below!
