Google’s Assistant will soon be available to 1 billion users

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) kicks off this week, and the show promises to be a voice command battleground.

Amazon has cracked the mark of 100 million devices sold with its voice assistant, Alexa on-Board.

Thanks to a report from The Verge, we also have really recent numbers for Alexa. The tech giant said that figure will be up from the 500 million devices the company said the assistant was on last May and 900 million more than Amazon's Alexa.

In addition to news rendering and music listening, the Alexa-powered devices such as Echo Dot, Echo, Echo Spot and much more can be extended with the help of Alexa skills. Google Assistant is also shipping on millions of Google Home speakers every quarter. Virtually everywhere you look, the Google Assistant is there.

Google announced a major milestone for Google Assistant today. AI voice assistants are expected to dominate this year's CES, with smart homes fast becoming the norm in the US.

Google's Assistant had a very eventful 2018, spreading on smart speakers, smart screens, expanding its language base, and now the firm expects it to reach a billion users by the end of January 2019. Many vendors are integrating with both digital assistants. It's inevitable that at least a few of the people who receive or purchase such a device will grow attached to Assistant, and use it on a regular basis. Its daily and monthly active user base has grown four times since this point past year, according to Google.

As well as Amazon's own line of Echo speakers, the number also includes the 150 third-party products that have Alexa built in such as the Sonos One speaker and the Bose QC35 II headphones amongst many others.
