Google Assistant voice control coming to TV services

Google Assistant voice control coming to TV services

Smart Displays are new trend in the digital market as many giants have turned up to produce new smart displays for the tech enthusiasts. The video shows how Google's Assistant work on the upcoming Smart Displays and how it would be helpful for you to make the smart display more smarter.

Whether the first 4K projector with Alexa or an entirely new family of smart display products housing Google Assistant, CES 2018 served as a showcase for voice assistants.

The company largely invented the modern smart-speaker category with the summer 2015 launch of the cylindrical Echo speaker. The device, which will start at $200, provides access to YouTube and can be used to control all of users' connected devices. And of course, with the added benefit of a screen, you'll also be able to use the Link to make video calls, watch videos, or visualize information like a map.

Details on Sony's smart display aren't yet available. And with so much excitement around speakers, we're making the Assistant even more available-this week we're announcing that the Assistant is coming to new voice-activated speakers from Altec Lansing, Anker Innovations, Bang & Olufsen, Braven, iHome, JBL, Jensen, LG, Klipsch, Knit Audio, Memorex, RIVA Audio and S?LIS. The device boasts technology that recognizes and responds to individual faces. Nor do I think voice would be a very good system for controlling home security devices. It features a screen that's meant to hold video calls, and stream music and video from services like Spotify and Netflix.

Other devices seemed to extend the definition of smart home to new corners.

But the Google lovefest today was markedly different than last year's CES, where Alexa played a role in its smart fridge and an Amazon executive got on stage.

Further reports reveal that as fans expected, this device will not be cheap. All of the Google notifications tied to your account will find their way onto your smart screen device too.

Since the Assistant can do so many things, we're introducing a new way to talk about them. The audio experience itself is driven by Meridian Audio technologies. Unfortunately, for those who may be interested in picking up a new audiophile-grade tabletop smart speaker, the wait for these is going to be a bit long. Prefer a smart screen rather than speaker?

Amazon's Alexa has been winning most of the initial battles for new business, he told TechNewsWorld, but vendors have been supporting both platforms.
