LG ThinQ WK9 Google Assistant Smart Speaker Announced

LG ThinQ WK9 Google Assistant Smart Speaker Announced

They will also be able to use Google Assistant to navigate through the videos by asking the artificial intelligence to play or pause it.

According to sources close to the matter, Google is toying with the idea of launching a revamped online store in February. Smart homes are in an exploratory stage and few consumers are yet to embrace constantly connected home hardware.

But I (and possibly you, Engadget reader) knew that. You got to check out this video right now! The smart display will play music, display calendar, weather and Google Maps, among other things. You can even reserve parking space through SpotHero.

The displays are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 624 microprocessor. It seems Google is getting the attention now.

Starting your day gets easier with the Lenovo Smart Display. The device is available to purchase in two different color options. The company may add some more color variants to its lineup in the future. The company will also roll out Assistant to more Android TVs including AirTV Player, Bouygues Telecom, LG U+, TCL, Skyworth and Xiaomi. The 8-inch model comes with a soft matte finish, while the 10-inch version can be customized with a bamboo finish. When not in use, you can set it to be a digital picture frame as it displays your pictures from Google photos.

Worth Watching Stock: Marathon Patent Grou (MARA)
According to the recommendations from 2 analysts stock has mean rating of 1 on the shares of Sorrento Therpt Cmn (NASDAQ:SRNE). MARA is already driving a -49.74% loss over the course of the past year and is now down -6.34% since this point in 2018.

This new Smart Display platform is powered mostly by Google Assistant, but the company has not developed monitor hardware for the platform themselves. Google showed off self-branded devices, speakers, and televisions from partners.

Google has also made it clear that the device is not just a tablet with Google in-built. The Amazon Echo Dot sold for $29 during the shopping season, while the Google Home Mini sold for $50 (and much less with promotions from retailers like Walmart).

The whole idea behind Smart Displays is to serve as an in-house assistant for all your daily needs. "Commissioning studies like THE SMART AUDIO REPORT allows us to stay ahead of the curve, meaningfully connect with listeners, and continue finding ways to create a more informed public".

What's your take on this? On the flip side, you better sit back to see the biggest trend - or, put another way, whatever was overkill this particular year. Do share your thoughts and opinions on this.
