"It goes back to our core philosophy of basically being agnostic and giving customers choice but the Google Assistant is a starting point", said Belimpasakis. Lenovo was the one of the first companies to unveil a Google Assistant powered Smart Display, with their yet-to-be-named product. The Lenovo Smart Display comes in an 8 inch and 10 inch variant and looks pretty great too. The front-facing camera will come in handy for video calling, using Google Duo. Ask the LG ThinQ WK9 and it'll play it on YouTube for you.
In order to link the devices, users are required to connect to them through the Google Home app or Google Assistant on their smartphone. This marks the first time that DISH customers with a Hopper, Joey or Wally can use voice to control their TV in multiple languages, including English and Spanish. One voice command and you'll have it right in front of you, via Google Maps.
The LG Smart Ecosystem has been contributing to the smart home industry in many ways. New survey data from The Smart Audio Report also reveals how voice-activation in the home is fueling adoption of smart technology broadly and affecting how often consumers engage with other platforms throughout the day.
