Google is Maturing to “Home”

Google Home is actually a smart speaker, powered by Google Assistant. Simply put, it is a voice activated device, combining Google services like calendar, search, and so on. It did not happen in a day, of course. Since the day you opened your Google account, the day you bought your first Android phone, the day you took your first picture, and so on, Google is collecting all our usage behavior data. Presumably, their database about “us” is huge. Combined and programmed together to give us a highly customized solution with amazing device interface, Google is now mature enough to “keep talking” (video) to us through machines (using artificial intelligence), that would amazingly sound “relevant” to what we are. But how far this “Home” thing will go in future? How much compromise of privacy will it ask for? What do you think?
