    Report says Google Home uses the same hardware as the Chromecast
    The Information is reporting that the ARM-based microprocessor and Wi-Fi chip used in Google Home is the same one that Google is using in their Chromecast products.

    This has spawned a bunch of 'Google Home is basically a Chromecast with a microphone, speakers and LED lights' articles, but the key difference will be the software used in these products.

    You know, just like Google Glass is essentially a Galaxy Nexus with a prismatic display, trackpad, lenses, nose piece, and ear pieces.

    They're basically the same thing.
