LG WK9 smart display device announced at CES 2018

Updated Google Assistant is now available for Android Auto

The goal is for people to have conversations with Amazon Echo smart speakers and other devices like they're on "Star Trek", chatting with the computer, Isbitski said. "Google has many more languages.so moving forward there are question marks about how long Amazon can sustain the growth".

Speaking at the sidelines of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Whitten said he was toying with the idea of turning Alexa into a 2018 version of a Blockbuster store clerk, who can guide your way to the most popular movies, but also opine on what you should really watch instead. Instead of being reliant exclusively on Echo speakers, Amazon wants as many outside devices to have built-in microphones to access Alexa as possible. Amazon's Echo line controlled about 73 percent of that market, while Google Home, which debuted in late 2016, controlled the remaining 27 percent. 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.

Amazon is at least financially encouraging the development community to put out its own Alexa-based products, via the Developer Rewards program announced in the first half of a year ago. To that end, Google has stepped up its support, making sure that its partners have everything they need, and promoting Google Assistant on third-party devices as much as possible.

Whirlpool customers can use voice commands anywhere in the house through their digital assistants. Or if you want to know what smart lights work with Google Home, just search "smart lights".

Google, Lenovo, JBL have come up with a new set of devices named as "smart displays".

TiVo's smart features will be rolling out over the next few months. It has weather, news and calendar functions. So to browse and find services that worked with your Google Home speaker, you simply had to scroll through a rapidly growing list of random add-ons.

Has the Google Assistant dominated CES 2018?


Lenovo has introduced its first smart display at the CES 2018.

Unfortunately, the LG ThinQ WK9, which goes on sale this summer, is probably the least attractive smart display we've seen so far.

"Overall, AI-enabled devices with voice interaction have been a major trend at CES", she told TechNewsWorld.

Google Assistant can be used to control all sort sof smart home gadgets and appliances. The device will respond to requests and control smart tech, and the addition of a screen means it can display images and YouTube videos, and make video calls. Z-Wave is an alliance of more than 2,100 products from 600 companies.

Battery Pack- Battery Pack or Power bank are utility accessories and they can charge multiple devices in a single charge.

The Milo, which includes a built-in three microphone array, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and support for Zigbee devices, can control hundreds of devices around the home.
