Amazon Alexa is coming to Toyota cars

Google’s advertising for its voice assistant is all over Las Vegas for CES

Google is trying to make a splash at the world's largest electronics trade show, blanketing Las Vegas with advertisements and its share of new gizmos that can be controlled by its Google Assistant.

Google Assistant has always been playing catch-up to Amazon's artificially-intelligent (AI) digital assistant Alexa. This includes Assistant updates such as voice commands for troubleshooting batteries on smartphones and payments of mobile-carrier bills, though it would likely be many years before Canadians would see the latter. With Alexa and Amazon, things would be different.

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. Assistant for Android Auto will perform actions like controlling your smart home, play music from Spotify or Google Play Music, get directions from Google Maps or Waze and send and receive messages from services like WhatsApp, among other things. The retail site will sell Google's products and will also sell the Nest smart thermostat, and Google's Assistant will be the main focus of the site.

Here's something we've noticed at CES 2018: A.I. assistants are everywhere, and seemingly on every device. Further reports reveal that Google's efforts of reminding fans of the existence of the Google Assistant has also extended to huge advertisement billboards. LG is playing both sides, in fact. LG chose to use Meridian Audio and add an 8-inch touchscreen display and a front-facing camera on this device.

It will be the first pair of AR glasses which will be Alexa integrated.

The Smart Display is available in 8- or 10-inch touchscreen models.

In summary, Amazon is looking at Alexa not just as a virtual assistant for speakers, but as a robust smart home platform. "We traded over 1 Google Home gadget each second ever since Google Home Mini began exporting in October", VP for Product Management at Google Home, Rishi Chandra, claimed to the media in an interview last week.
