Google has announced availability of the Google Home and Home Mini in India today. The smart speakers are exclusive to Flipkart for now, with the regular Google Home priced at ₹9,999 and the Mini selling for ₹4,999. The Mini is available in black or white; the Home only comes in white. Buying either gets you six free months of Google Play Music.
Although the Google Assistant can already be used in Hindi on phones, Android Central reports that Hindi support will only roll out to the Google Home speakers “later this year.” The official India launch does, however, mean Google now natively supports Indian music services like Saavn and Gaana for music.
Amazon recently launched the Echo and Echo Dot speakers in India at similar prices, but there’s no word on Alexa support for Hindi or any other Indian languages.
