Google Chirp to Compete with Amazon Echo

As Google I/O looms, reports surface of what Google will unveil at the developer conference.

The Google I/O 2016 will begin next week on May 18 in Mountain View, California. A week ahead of the developer conference rumors surface about what Google will unveil. Yesterday we reported about Android VR, a new virtual reality headset. Today a rumor breaks about Google Chirp, an Amazon Echo competitor.

Update: Google's Echo competitor is called Google Home.

Amazon Echo is a run away success and it is just a matter of time we see similar products from other companies, especially those who offer voice assistance services. 

ReCode reports that Google Chirp is in the works, but it is not likely to be unveiled at the Google I/O 2016. Consumers will have to wait until end of the year to say Okay, Google in their home without an Android phone. 

We also expect Apple and Microsoft to make Amazon Echo knock offs for Siri and Cortana respectively. 

In March Amazon added Amazon Tap and Amazon Dot to the Echo line-up. The new Amazon Tap is an Alexa-enabled portable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speaker that offers rich, full-range sound. The Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice controlled device that uses the same far-field voice recognition as Echo.

It is still funny for me to see an e-commerce retailer dominating some consumer electronics categories. How did that happen?
