The long wait is over: Google Home is finally launching in the UK.

On Tuesday morning, Google announced at an event in central London that it is releasing Google Home, its AI-powered smart speaker, in Britain.

The device was first unveiled in October 2016, but it was initially only available to buy in the US.

Google Home is a speaker infused with Google Assistant, Google's AI virtual assistant. It's controlled by voice commands, and can play music, provide updates on news and weather, tell the user about their schedule, set timers, and more. (Google Assistant is also available in some Android smartphones, and is being ported into more and more devices.)

It goes on sale on April 6 from Google's website and other retailers, for £129.
