LG's Google Assistant smart display has been beaten with the ugly stick

LG's Google Assistant smart display has been beaten with the ugly stick

Sony should join the Amazon Echo Show-challenging party as well sometime "later this year", provisionally keeping under wraps everything about its own voice-commanded, display-sporting smart speaker.

In related news, JBL also announced the LINK View, another smart display device running the Google Assistant out of the box, although we don't have any info about its price either. The LINK View provides excellent sound quality, and is ideal for anyone that consumes a large amount of content daily. "Research shows voice activated speakers are no mere novelty".

HARMAN, in close collaboration with Google, is bringing consumers the first smart speaker to incorporate the Google Assistant with a visual display. With the camera above the screen you can make Duo calls.

The high-resolution touch screen and camera is framed by two front-firing stereo speakers and a rear-facing passive radiator.

Meanwhile Amazon is spreading Alexa far and wide to all sorts of different products that you would not typically associate with digital assistants like bathroom mirrors, shower heads, mesh routers, headphones, TV, navigation devices and even Windows computers.

In order to link the devices, users are required to connect to them through the Google Home app or Google Assistant on their smartphone.

Pricing details have yet to be announced, but JBL says the Link View will be available at some point this summer.

Has the Google Assistant dominated CES 2018? And radio should take notice that Google is a serious player in this fight, and make sure their radio stations are not only Alexa-enabled, but also Google Home-enabled.
