Before Google killed this feature, it would allow you to long-press on the top of the device to activate Google Assistant. Google launched " Home Mini " on October 4 for $49 at an event in San Francisco .

Some four minutes after launch, the already pre-flown first stage of the rocket landed on a floating barge (named "Of course I still love you") some 600 kms downrange and off Florida's East coast. "A successful landing of the first stage", SpaceX commentator John Innsbrucker said on the company's live webcast, as applause erupted at SpaceX mission control in Hawthorne, California. Eventually, SpaceX hopes to not only increase the pace at which it can launch, but also turn around rockets for reuse within 24 hours, so the more in can launch multiple rockets in the same week, the better for its long-term plan. Another launch helped loft the BulgariaSat-1 spacecraft on June 23.

A flawless sunset launch by Elon Musk-backed SpaceX placed a heavyweight joint-venture Airbus-built SES/EchoStar satellite into geostationary orbit on Wednesday evening.

This is the second launch this week for SpaceX, after it competed its Iridium-3 mission on Monday morning. It's only the third time SpaceX has reflown a rocket on an orbital mission. "You can see the EchoStar 105/SES-11 satellite successfully deployed from the top of the Falcon 9 second stage, gliding away into space". Englewood, Colorado-based EchoStar is leasing the Ku-band payload for 10 years, branded as EchoStar-105, while SES uses the C-band payload as SES-11.
