News Google Home smart speaker launches in India

The devices are equipped with Google Assistant, the search giant's digital voice assistant, which is activated when a user says "OK, Google" or "Hey, Google."

Google Home understands Indian accents and will respond with "uniquely Indian contexts," the company said in a blog post Tuesday.

Users can ask the devices for the latest news stories from sources such as The Times of India or NDTV, or get some recipe ideas. Other commands include playing music or asking questions.

Google Home will be priced at 9,999 rupees ($153.78), while the Mini will be 4,499 rupees. The Google Home is $129 in the U.S.
