Google Assistant makes the leap to smart displays by Lenovo, Sony

13 January 2018

To help you discover the Actions available on your Assistant, Google will let you browse through them via a new directory page, which is also available on your Android phone (or iPhone).

And thanks to this Qualcomm integration, users can control their smart home goods from the display or with their voice, including Nest products, smart lights and thermostats.

Google on Monday announced that it is expanding the availability of Google Assistant to Smart displays.

Biggest ever OnePlus screen for new 5T flagship smartphone
Also, an 8-megapixel camera sensor is available on the front with f/1.7 aperture lens and 1440p video recording support at 30fps. HMD Global, the company behind Nokia brand, has provided OZO audio on the Nokia 8 that enables a spatial sound experience.

That's notable because of an ongoing spat between Amazon and Google about Amazon's use of YouTube on the Echo Show. For example, it can now show you a full weather report for the week, or stream YouTube videos having searched the catalog by voice. It's not flawless, but it is fairly close to what you'd get out of the Google Home. The emails read "improve discovery of your content in the Google Assistant". The addition of Google Assistant will allow drivers to complete more tasks on the road, such as changing directions, select music and even order food and drink.

Forum discussion at Twitter. Of the four names, only Lenovo's Smart Display has been announced so far.

Both the 8-and the 10-inch Smart Displays boast a single 10W speaker, 1.75-inches on the smaller unit, 2 inches on the 10-inch model, with both models sporting 2×2 dual microphone arrays. Amazon has released a version of the Echo with a screen and now Google has enlisted the support of its hardware partners to do the same.

Lenovo is following a trend to design smart home products that have a more modern feel.

Altec Lansing launched three new speakers integrated with Google Assistant.

Lenovo has announced that it brings the smart display for $199 for the 8-inch variant, while the 10-inch display will be available for $249. Aperson can ask the Google Assistant a question and the response will be shown on a screen. Your homescreen displays the time, along with snaps from your Google Photos account, and unlike the Echo Show it'll play videos from YouTube without any hassle. Perhaps most interesting of all is that it sounds like the Smart Display can learn command macros ala Bixby too, which is always useful.
