Google took to the stage at Google I/O this year to discuss new features in store for Google Home, the company's smart home device created to let you use Google Assistant for more than just smartphone capabilities.

Google Home has already landed in the United Kingdom as of April, but among the fortunate places to expand Google Home's reach is its northern brother, Canada. Per Google, the shipping wait for pre-orders will be about 2-3 weeks. Google's account replied, "You can pre-order Google Home in Canada today, and buy in store on 6/26". However, Home was only available in the U.S. at first.

In Canada, the Google Home is selling for CAD 179.99, which, after converting, is a pretty similar price to the one offered in the U.S. From the announcement we can learn that the Google Home will be available starting on June 26th.

In a recent press release, Google says that Home is set to launch in Canada in both English and French. In an ironic twist, Google has beaten Amazon to Canada when it comes to smart assistants - the Echo still isn't available in the country, despite being available for two years in the US.

No word from Google on the timetable for its speaker's arrival in Australia, Germany, and France, either - though the timely Canadian debut would appear to be a good sign.
