Therefore, accessing more home equipment and building a smart ecosystem is the next

access to more than 400 brands and 1,500 smart home appliances, and more than 100

million smart devices can be controlled by “speak”. The Xiaomi IoT platform supports nearly

2,000 devices, and the number of smart device connections exceeds 132 million. Baidu has

Google speaker shipped 13.9 million units and 11.5 million units in the fourth quarter of last

Internet of Things will become a battleground for the military, and the competition will

become more intense.
