Indeed, Google is reaching out to the same audience of people who have a discerning ear for music as Apple is with HomePod. It can't yet control iOS devices or Apple TVs, and it can't distinguish between multiple users' voices.

Schneiderman said Sunday the lawsuit is the result of a four-month investigation that included "interviews with multiple company employees, executives, and survivors of Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct", as well as "an exhaustive review of company records and emails".

"As alleged in our complaint, The Weinstein Company repeatedly broke NY law by failing to protect its employees from pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation and discrimination", said Schneiderman. The standoff occurred because the Weinstein Company board rejected a settlement offer on Wednesday that potentially left them open to liability over sexual harassment claims against the company, according to an individual with knowledge of the talks.
