Google Voice HAT

Thanks to a partnership with Google, issue number 57 of The MagPi, the official Raspberry Pi magazine, comes bundled with a special hardware kit. Voice HAT enables users to easily add voice interactions to their Raspberry Pi project through the Google Assistant SDK and Google Cloud Speech API. The kit includes a Google board, a microphone with its own board, a speaker and all the wires you need. Voice HAT connects to Google Cloud with a Python programme; see this example. To subscribe to MagPi magazine, click here (GB£90 per year for Canada, or CA$160, with a free Pi Zero W). The digital PDF edition of MagPi is free, but doesn’t come with goodies like Google’s Voice HAT.
