But apparently, that wasn't the real Google Assistant. Pricing was a hugely important piece of Amazon and Google's smart home successes. It can also display weather information, news stories and make-up tutorials. "They are starting to express a lot more intent", he said. The company unveiled the LG Gram laptops, OLED and Super UHD LED TVs and even a Smart display powered by Google Assistant.They also announced the Smart ThinQ speaker which has Google Assistant built in.

Lenovo, LG, Sony and JBL are making Smart Displays. Google's Assistant dominated the show's headlines through sheer brute force of product announced and an over the top ad campaign that found everything from the monorails to the signage at the Westgate emblazoned with the words "Hello Google". Alexa is being integrated into more and more devices, such as light switches and smoke detectors, so that there is potentially something in every room of your house that's always listening, waiting to respond to your voice commands.

The benefit of this is simpler integration, with one device that not only serves as the connection nexus for all Z-Wave wireless communication, but that can also offer full voice control and provide all of Google's assistant services.

The company is reportedly working on a redesigned Google Store with Assistant-powered devices at the heart of its online platform, reports Bloomberg.

The Consumer Electronics Show is a popular event around the globe because world's most known brands and companies will come together to showcase their products.

Technology fads often run hot then fizzle, and it's tempting to think that the Numi intelligent Wi-Fi-connected Kohler commode will fall into the realm of cool-but-little-used items that include smart forks and see-through washing machines. "We wanted this to be instead you're having a conversation and the display enhances it, so a lot of the work is going to ensure we maintain that simplicity". The company still sounds bullish about the smart assistant. "While Apple is renowned for creating an ecosystem in which privacy and security are sacrosanct, Amazon has already seen its Alexa system subpoenaed into a court of law to give evidence in a murder trial, and the jury is still out on Google's foray into the market".

The number of people who received a new smart spaker during the holiday shopping season was very high according to the report, 7% say they acquired at least one smart speaker between Black Friday and the end of December. However, when it comes to the company's refrigeration units will use Alexa.
