For a few months now, there have been hints that Google has been getting ready to interchange its four-year-old Home sensible speaker with a brand new mannequin. We now have a good suggestion of what that gadget will appear like.
Last night time, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) uploaded an inventory associated to an unannounced Google gadget. Unfortunately, the filling didn’t embrace a lot in the way in which of helpful data. Subsequently, nevertheless, Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications revealed a submitting for a similar gadget. We know they’re the identical product as a result of they share an identical identifiers: GXCA6. Android TV Guide first noticed the itemizing, which incorporates images of the sensible speaker. We don’t understand how Google plans to model this new gadget, however for this text, we’ll name it the “Nest Speaker.”
Based on the restricted data we’ve got, it’s exhausting to say if the Google Nest Speaker has all of the issues we’d wish to see from a brand new Google Home.

According to a report 9to5Google revealed in June, the brand new mannequin will sound higher than its predecessor.
As Android Police factors out, the Google Nest Speaker is taller than each the Google Home and Home Max. As you may see from the ruler within the picture, it’s about 220mm (~8.7 inches) tall. By distinction, the Home and Home Max measure in at 143mm and 200mm tall. We don’t know when Google will announce this new sensible speaker. However, if it’s passing by regulators, then a launch date can’t be too distant.
