Rather than developing its own voice assistant, Panasonic recently launched the GA10 speaker as a third-party device that is capable of offering interactions with the Google Assistant. This is a significant release from Panasonic, because it marks the first time a major electronics brands has offered built-in Google Assistant connectivity.

With this smart speaker, consumers will be able to speak "OK Google" to activate a variety of tasks, such as playing music, answering questions and controlling other smart home devices.

The main differentiation between the Google Home hub and the GA10 speaker is sound quality, with Panasonic incorporating an eight-centimetre woofer with a dual-voice coil and a set of angled 20-millimetre tweeters, which promise an audio experience that boasts a robust, expansive sound.
