This Year’s Top Searches on Google for Tech Products Include Nintendo Switch & Xbox One X Consoles


Google has published this year's top searches for all categories and the tech category, the one we're most interested in, includes two consoles in its Top 5, Nintendo's Switch and Microsoft's Xbox One X. These are strong results in a category that's otherwise dominated by smartphones, devices that operate in a much bigger market. In fact, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X ended up at the second and third place in the overall category, which once again testifies the incredible pull of the Apple brand.

Going back to the aforementioned consoles, this is yet another confirmation that they're both selling very well. Nintendo recently announced to have sold through 10 million units of the Switch; we don't have any concrete figures for Microsoft's Xbox One X yet since it only launched a month ago, but early impressions from the industry are strong - Gamespot said that the console is "off to a good start" and research firm IHS Markit recently doubled the forecast for this year's Xbox One X sales.
