As of September 2017, Google has shipped 7 million Google Home products, whereas Amazon has shipped almost three times (20 million) as many Echo devices. Keep in mind that these numbers are just through September and don’t take into account the holiday shopping season.
The question is why? Why is there such a disparity between the two companies? What is Amazon doing so well that Google isn’t?
I would hope that Amazon had sold more devices than Google given the fact that, as the article touches on, the Echo has been in the market two years longer than any of Google’s Home devices.
It’s impressive that in a relatively short time, Google’s been able to take some serious chunks out of Amazon’s market share in a category they stood alone in until just over a year ago.
