The world's largest smartphone chip company based in the US said its two Qualcomm Home Hub platforms support Google's Android Things. Since this platform integrates the hardware and software required, it will enable OEMs to easily build smart speakers powered by Cortana.
The Smart Audio Platform from Qualcomm asserts that the Alexa version should come with far-field voice support with six microphones while for Google it should support the Internet of Things IoT. The enhanced ability of the Home Hub makes the operations easier for the Google Assistant-integrated smart displays from the makers such as Lenovo and others.

As with its failed mobile platform, Microsoft's problems also stem in part from its inability to attract third-party developers to Cortana.

"With support for both Linux and Android Things operating systems, as well as voice services from major cloud providers, the Smart Audio Platform offers manufacturers a variety of choices to help them participate in the growing smart speaker opportunity", Qualcomm said in a statement.
Qualcomm Technologies also introduced the new Qualcomm Low Power Bluetooth SoC QCC5100 series to help manufacturers develop a new generation of compact wireless earbuds, hearables and headsets. It can even support displays at a 720p resolution (Adreno 304 or 308 GPU) and Google Cast.
It also announced that the Smart Audio Platform has also gained certification from other virtual assistants such as Amazon's Alexa and Microsoft's Cortana. The device will be available in the market like in the mid 2018.
