Lenovo has a Google Home with a Display

Lenovo has a Google Home with a Display

JBL says it is the frist smart speaker to incorporate the Google Assistant with an 8-inch visual display with a touch screen and 5MP front facing camera.

Some time in the second half of this year, Dish Network customers will be able to do this via Google Assistant after pairing the DVR with a device that has the service; that includes Google Home devices, plus mobile phones.

Now, staying true to Google's promise, LG has revealed its first Smart Display, dubbed the ThinQ WK9. Users can view pictures, stream audio and video, ask questions, scan recipes, and video call with family and friends, all with their voice.

You can use Google Assistant to show you directions from Google Maps, do video calling on Google Duo, listen to music and check out your daily schedule.

The high-resolution touch screen and camera is framed by two front-firing stereo speakers and a rear-facing passive radiator, delivering JBL Signature Sound with rich, deep bass.

Today at CES in Las Vegas, Lenovo took the wraps off a smart speaker with a nice difference to the Google Home, it has a screen.

Amazon already did it with the Echo Show but Lenovo's functionally named Smart Display (from US$$200) is arguably a better looking bit of kit. Priced at $249.99 for the 10-inch, and $199.99 for the 8-inch model, Lenovo Smart Display is expected to be available in the summer of 2018. For example, the query "Play "The Crown" on my TV" requires a Chromecast-connected TV, and controlling devices like lights and thermostats requires compatible smart lights and smart thermostats linked to Google Home.
