Google Home speaker

Google Home and WiFi officially announced for UK

Google has officially confirmed that it will launch the Google Home speaker in the United Kingdom. The release is no surprise, but the search engine giant has now officially laid out its plan.

It is a product launch that was fully expected, as Google has been briefing about plans to launch in the UK for some time.

What is more of a surprise is that the home automation speaker is to be joined in the UK by the Google WiFi router.

Both products will have wide availability. In addition to being sold through the Google Store, a number of other retailers are also on board, including John Lewis, Argos and Maplin.

Google Home will go on sale for £129, while there will be two pricing options for Google WiFi. The router will be available as a single unit for £129, or as part of a twin pack costing £229.
