Google Assistant for DISH


For those who thought Cortana was the last runner against other voice assistants such as Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri and Bixby, there's news. Amazon had a head start over every other tech giant in the market with the launch of its Echo smart speaker in 2014, and Google has been playing catch-up ever since. However, storage specifications do not really matter much on devices likes these, as its role is to respond to voice commands and deliver requests via its display.

Interestingly, the announcement came from Panasonic, the first company off the blocks to partner with Amazon and it said the feature can function even if there is no internet connectivity.

CES 2018 is officially under way and Google has set up camp. So we would get to see a bunch of new digital displays in the market.

At least that's how Google, Lenovo and JBL are choosing to call them, while LG seems to adopt a less pompous, more obvious "touch screen speaker" marketing label.

It has an 8-inch touchscreen display and speakers it says are tuned by Meridian Audio, on either side. The device is available to purchase in two different color options. It just looks like a generic rectangular speaker with an awkwardly inserted 8-inch display in the middle.

Digital assistants have been one of the most prolific technologies at this year's CES in Las Vegas. Regarding the device specifications LG hasn't spoken a lot.

So folks, that's what all about the new Smart Display from Lenovo powered by Google Assistant.

The whole idea behind Smart Displays is to serve as an in-house assistant for all your daily needs.

The LG ThinQ WK9 is most likely powered by Qualcomm's SD624 Home Hub Platform, as seen in Lenovo's and JBL's variants and we can expect it to be an industry standard of sorts until better hardware is released. Do share your thoughts and opinions on this. We'll update this story if we get a response.
