Apple Music support might be coming to Google Home devices soon

February 26th, 2019

Apple and Google might be mortal rivals when it comes to smartphone operating systems, but sometimes, it pays to work together.

Crazy next-gen accessory lets you wirelessly charge an Echo Dot from across the room

November 16th, 2018

A lot of “wireless” tech inside practically any smart device that’s currently available in stores, but there’s still one magical wireless feature that’s still not widely available.

Even the HomePod, with the full weight of Apple’s engineering team and Jony Ive’s facial hair, couldn’t make a dent in Echo sales. But according to new sales data from Canalys, Google took …

Amazon started the current trend of voice assistants when it launched the Amazon Echo four years ago. But the first-mover advantage doesn’t last all that long in tech, and Google has been pouring its considerable artificial intelligence resources into the Google Assistant ever since then. The company just announced a raft of new features for …
