Google's Echo Show competitor plans revealed after YouTube block

The device is said to feature a screen about the size of that of the Echo Show, which ships with a 7-inch touch screen.

Google is reportedly preparing an Assistant-powered device with a large display to take on Amazon and its Echo Show. Unfortunately, kids normally don't know when to put ... Because it will likely run on Android, third-party apps may be a possibility.

However, at this point, it seems unclear whether the company is going to make the deadline to release it for this year's holiday season, or push a release to next year. Playing audiobooks, voice interaction, making to-do lists, streaming podcasts, music playback, setting alarms and providing real-time weather, traffic and other information are the great features of all amazon's echo devices. But if this will indeed be the case, some will find it hard to justify getting Manhattan over a device like Google Home, especially because of the higher price tag it's expected to come with. While calling, there shows the contact number to recipient or users can change the settings as there would show a call from "unknown number".
