Presumably, a careless search giant employee left his testing unit visible to nearby compatible gadgets while preparing its installation or performing some last-minute software inspections. This smaller version of Google Home is priced at $49 and has all the features that the standard Home features.

Last minute leaks have revealed, what are likely official press renders for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL directly from Google. Amazon has its own Alexa voice assistant in Echo Dot while Google is expected to rope in its own Assistant in Google Home Mini. However, a new listing on a reseller's website reveals some alleged hardware specifications of the unannounced Pixelbook.
