Both Apple and Google have been trying to get people to buy their smart home speakers, but Amazon has sold way more devices in this category. Limp also noted that, unlike with Siri or Google Assistant which come with devices, Alexa consumers chose to purchase Alexa or Alexa-enabled products, key to the success of the voice assistant.

That estimate includes both Google products and devices from other brands including smartphones, smart speakers, smart displays, vehicle infotainment screens, and home security cameras. I look forward to seeing what Google bring next.
