Cool Smart Home Assistants At CES 2018

Cool Smart Home Assistants At CES 2018

Yes, the new Lenovo Smart Displays announced with Google Assistant.

"Voice services are rapidly becoming more popular and through our integration with Amazon Alexa, Toyota and Lexus customers will soon be able to easily speak to Alexa in their cars while on-the-go, "said Zack Hicks, senior vice president for Toyota Motor North America".

Apple and Google could also exploit their positions as integral parts of the general population's lives: we all walk into work with either Siri or Google Assistant in our pockets.

However, the headline news was a new range of smart displays aimed squarely at challenging the Amazon Echo Show.

The Smart Displays will offer exactly the same interface like a smartphone, however you would see some added features on the Smart Displays. The Smart Display does not come with 4G LTE cellular network and it also does not have its own web browser. In this regard, Google has partnered with Kia and Fiat Chrysler to give the Assistant access to their cars' fuel levels and to allow users to lock their cars with their voice.

What to Watch For: Jets vs Patriots
New England begins its playoff push for a sixth Super Bowl championship on either January 13 or 14 at Gillette Stadium. Gronkowski and the NY media saw it all up close and personal Sunday. "We stuck together", linebacker David Bass said.

Meanwhile Amazon is spreading Alexa far and wide to all sorts of different products that you would not typically associate with digital assistants like bathroom mirrors, shower heads, mesh routers, headphones, TV, navigation devices and even Windows computers. More than two-thirds of smart speaker owners report having an Echo, Dot, or other Alexa-based product. You got to check out this video right now!

Users of the smart displays being unveiled by Google can not browse the Web or install apps as they would on a tablet, but the new gadgets are optimized for sound quality and listening to voice commands. The additional vehicle features will give auto owners ready access to Alexa and make use of the services that the digital bot is programmed to dispense. JBL comes in second, with their Link View Smart Display. The company may add some more color variants to its lineup in the future. The 8-inch model is priced at $199 while the 10-inch will retail at $249 when it goes on sale in early summer.

At CES 2018, Google announced the support for Google Assistant for Smart Displays. However, the Mobile Accessory Kit is much simpler and uses Bluetooth to communicate to other devices. In the past, one model of smart speaker broke and recorded every sound in range.

Google has also made it clear that the device is not just a tablet with Google in-built. One way Google is reportedly looking to do that is by launching a revamped online store in February.

So folks, that's what all about the new Smart Display from Lenovo powered by Google Assistant.
