Google's assistant now works on smart speakers with screens

JBL, Lenovo, Sony and LG are all making smart displays similar to (but hopefully less fugly than) the Amazon Echo Show which are, effectively let's face it, static tablets but with oh-so-much more.

The new smart screen devices will make video calls, access Google Photos and show YouTube videos.

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

The Google Assistant is going places this year, hopping between smart displays, cars, headphones, and TVs from various partners.

Adoption of these smart speakers is still relatively low, but tech companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Apple are betting these voice-first devices are the next major platform, like smartphones or desktop computers.

For that reason, the Lenovo Smart Display can be seen as an upgrade to a smart speaker. The brand has also announced that it will launch more headphones from Jaybird, JBL, LG and Sony, which will be optimized for the Google Assistant.

Bond was set at $2,500 for Foster, who was a first-team All-American for the Crimson Tide in 2016 and also won the Butkus Award. He then failed a mandatory drug test, which came back as dilute and, per league rules, had to be treated as positive.

With the Google Assistant in Android Auto, drivers will be able to listen to playlists from Spotify or Google Play Music, get directions from Google Maps or Waze and send or receive messages with services like WhatsApp. In addition, JBL, Lenovo, LG, and Sony will be releasing Google Assistant speakers with a screen by the summer.

But with a display, the Google Assistant gets amplified.

Software and security updates can be pushed to installed devices through the Google Cloud, helping OEMs to quickly and efficiently add new features, fix bugs, and update security while reducing cost of product life cycle maintenance - even at global scale. The 8-inch model Smart Display has an HD screen, and the 10-inch bumps that up to full HD.
