LG's take on the Google Assistant-powered smart display is pretty boring

Companies throughout the tech space are introducing devices and announcing new partnerships at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Google Assistant-powered smart displays will performs most of the functions that smart speakers do, while the display will allow you to watch videos from YouTube, make video calls with Duo and find photos from Google Photos, the company said. While Google Duo hasn't seen much love from the users so far, we hope that it gets the attention it deserves after its integration with more smart devices. It offers a customisable night light, plays music and answers "Hey, Google" questions, and also links to other Onelink devices in the home to sound a wholehouse alarm in the event of an emergency.

Google has made great strides with Assistant, but the search giant still has plenty of work to do to catch up with Amazon's Alexa.

Dish customers will be able to use Google Assistant on Google Home, Android phones and iPhones to control their Dish equipment.

Furthermore, the smart displays are equipped with all the Google services' applications.


On the basic technology level, Alexa has, for competition, Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana and Samsung's Bixby.

As the battle for voice assistant market share heats up, both Google and Amazon will be vying for more real estate. The only difference between the 8-inch and 10-inch version is the resolution, as the former supports high-definition (HD) while the latter is capable of Full HD. While it may quote 400 million devices with Assistant access, most are Android smartphones rather than the smart speakers or other devices that we've seen Alexa proliferate on. The Google Assistant recently pushed to LG's Smart Speakers.

However, previously in May 2017, DISH had added Alexa voice control to its services. One way Google is reportedly looking to do that is by launching a revamped online store in February. For more updates, stay tuned with us!
