Google Assistant Installed Base Is Reportedly 10x Larger Than Amazon Alexa

Magic mark: Amazon reveals for the first time, how many Alexa-devices are in circulation

Samsung Electronics announced that it will equip its Samsung Smart TV with Apple's iTunes Movie and TV shows app and AirPlay 2, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 in Las Vegas, Sunday.

By comparison, Amazon's Alexa is available on 100 million devices, according to a recent report from The Verge. And it's really similar to what Amazon is doing with the Alexa Connect Kit. It will also focus heavily on enabling partners to make more Alexa features this year, and to push hard on global expansion to drive those adoption numbers even higher.

In short, without taking it so long, the novelty lies in the fact that among the third-party partners of Samsung's intelligent assistant is now added Google apps.

And while the royal family doesn't decorate the trees at Buckingham themselves, the youngest members of the Windsor clan (a.k.a. The Sussexes have announced plans to leave Kensington Palace for a cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

However, Android phones will still make up the majority of Google Assistant's install base. These are all Android TV devices, but Samsung also added the Google Assistant to its Tizen-powered Android TVs. The executive wants to get as many devices to use Alexa as possible, and he wants those devices to do as much as possible. Do you already use one? On Android, Assistant will work with SMS, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts, Viber, Telegram, Android Messages and others, though Google cautions that functionality will vary by service.

Although it doesn't plan to bring the device to market itself, the company hopes that device makers will be inspired to offer the technology when they see what they can do. This feature will be very useful in many settings as it should work with any Assistant-enabled speaker or display. For what it's worth, Amazon doesn't provide an active user number either, and there are conceivably some devices (like Sonos speakers) that come with unwanted Alexa support that is never set up.

Without providing specific numbers, Huffman said Google Home and Google Home Hub devices sold well throughout this past holiday season.
