TiVo announces Google Assistant, Alexa, and IFTTT support

REUTERS/Dado RuvicGoogle smart displays, in partnership with Lenovo and other brands, are in direct competition with the Amazon Echo Show. This includes Assistant updates such as voice commands for troubleshooting batteries on smartphones and payments of mobile-carrier bills, though it would likely be many years before Canadians would see the latter. However, when it comes to the company's refrigeration units will use Alexa.

Google Assistant has been the talk of the town at CES 2018. You can even reserve parking space through SpotHero. The Smart Display has builtin Google Assistant to get things done.

LG's Smart Display is set to have an 8-inch touchscreen enabled panel (we don't know the resolution yet, but it's most likely HD). The device is available to purchase in two different color options. 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.

Bloomberg reports the online store will place a much greater emphasis on its own products, like Nest devices, in an attempt to double down on Assistant. Google is looking to nab more of that real estate as well.

So folks, that's what all about the new Smart Display from Lenovo powered by Google Assistant. Simply saying telling it "Good morning", will make the display light up and show personalised information for users to get ready for the day such as showing the weather, pending activities and appointments.

What's your take on this?

The LG ThinQ WK9 is most likely powered by Qualcomm's SD624 Home Hub Platform, as seen in Lenovo's and JBL's variants and we can expect it to be an industry standard of sorts until better hardware is released.

You guys can comment below for any question. "However, as we increasingly engage with more virtual assistants in our home, at work, in the vehicle - and everything in between - a cognitive arbitrator will ultimately be needed to connect the diverse virtual assistants, third-party services and content, and intelligent agents through an interoperable interface".
