Google Home Launch for India Expected on April 10th – Saavn and Gaana Streaming Services Now Accessible

Voicebot reported earlier this week that the Google Home launch for India would be this month. The company has arranged an event on April 10th in New Delhi with a hint in the invitation:

Join us as we bring you a sweet little something that’s bound to keep you talking for a long, long while.

It also looks like Google Home will launch with access to the two top music streaming services in India. A Reddit user discovered that Gaana and Saavn will join Google Play Music as streaming music options in Google Home.

The bigger news will likely be if Google announces that Home will launch with Hindi as well as English support. Hindi is one of the 30 languages that the company has said Google Assistant will support in 2018. It would be logical to launch with Hindi support and create clear differentiation from Amazon Echo which has a head start in user adoption in India, but does not currently support Hindi.
