This new Google website shows all possible Google Assistant commands and interactions

Or maybe you picked up an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot and are curious about smart locks that lock - and unlock - your front door by talking out loud. The DVR company has just announced that integration with these two digital voice assistants is on the way for TiVo products, allowing you to consume your DVR content in better ways. With Alexa, customers can simply ask for directions, control entertainment, get the news, add items to a shopping list, control their smart home while on the road, and more. With a simple voice command a user can access an array of information, such as weather, news or sports scores, play games and plug into thousands of "skills", the Alexa version of a smartphone app.

Finding products are important.

The company is reportedly working on a redesigned Google Store with Assistant-powered devices at the heart of its online platform, reports Bloomberg. Seven percent of Americans report acquiring at least one smart speaker between Black Friday and the end of 2017, and 4% report acquiring their first smart speaker device during the holidays.

What's there at CES 2018 for Google Assistant? In the smart home of the future, you'll be able to interact with your appliances and devices using only your voice. Google Assistant is being introduced into Android Auto equipped vehicles including certain offerings from Ford, Holden, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Subaru.

The consolidated database is excellent for people new to the Google Assistant ecosystem and want to skim through its abilities.

What are they using the devices for? Qualcomm is also in talks with Google for producing custom-made chips specific for the functioning of these devices.

Google has also worked with smart headphones' maker including LG, JB, Jaybord, and Sony to include the smart assistant.

While last year's push was to get Google's smart speaker lineup up to speed, this year's focus will be on the smart display.

Google isn't really a hardware company. Even after Google catches up to Amazon - in some respects, it already has - both companies will continue to coexist, as each has strengths the other lacks.
