Google's advertising for its voice assistant is all over Las Vegas for CES. Some analysts think that Amazon and Google might have lost a few bucks per unit just to move product. Several large video billboards around the conference centre are dedicated to advertising the Google Assistant. According to the numbers in the report, 11% of Americans own an Amazon smart speaker, with 4% owning a Google Home device. After Google did not grant permission for Amazon's Echo Show to present YouTube content, Google thought it would be a good idea to make their assistant able to have YouTube content. So far, this vision has been presented primarily through smart speaker hubs created to be placed in the centre of your home.
Sorted by categories, it really is a comprehensive thesaurus of all the interactions Google's useful piece of software is capable of, and it's enough to supercharge the experience of even the most devoted fans. The retail site will sell Google's products and will also sell the Nest smart thermostat, and Google's Assistant will be the main focus of the site. Both Lenovo and LG announced touchscreen-enabled smart speakers with Google Assistant on-board, which is likely to make up for Google not making a Google Home with a display yet. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 624 SoC and comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support.
One major reason that smart speakers sold so well during the holiday is that the devices were deeply discounted. This means that, at least for some products, you won't have to choose sides, and can control devices using whichever voice assistant you're in the mood for. The new Lenovo Smart Display sports 8 Inch and 10 Inch sizes. We would get to see some more smart displays from various giants in the coming days. Do share your thoughts and opinions on this. Only Siri missed out on the party, though Apple's assistant tends to be more of a lone wolf, anyway.
