Google is leaping into the rapidly evolving market for smart home devices with new voice-activated speakers called "Google Home."

"CBS This Morning" had a first look at Google Home on Thursday.

The device is Google's answer to Amazon's Echo speakers, which hit the market two years ago. At the moment, Echo is "the undisputed king of the nascent smart home market," according to CNET.

Google Home syncs with your personal Google account and answers your questions harnessing Google's highly advanced search intelligence.
