It's equipped with Voice Match as well which means it can recognise your voice and give you personalised information. Google says they took hundreds of tries before they came out with the ideal colors for the device.

Well, Google Home is also going to be available in Japan from today. Moreover, since this is a Google product, it also uses machine learning.
