DISH to provide voice-based TV control with Google Assistant

Insteon and Google Assistant release new voice-activated home system

The Link View is a smart display speaker with of course Google Assistant embedded into the device.

With Amazon dominating CES a year ago with Alexa, it seems that Google can no longer ignore Alexa's growing influence even though Google Assistant is available on phones and tablets.

The feature is arriving on the company's Hopper, Joey and Wally devices at some unspecified time in the first half of this year.

The first of these gadgets that was announced is the Lenovo Smart Display. While the hardware may be promising, the name is quite forgettable.

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 LINK View will join the recently launched JBL LINK series. There's a 5MP camera above it and a JBL logo at the bottom and both the left and right side are flanked by two 10W stereo speakers that are paired with a passive radiator on the back to enable "rich, deep bass". Along with this, there's also support for Bluetooth, Google Cast, and IPX4 splash resistance. 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.

Chris Turkstra, Director, Google Assistant, "With smart displays, we're bringing the Google Assistant to a new class of device that deliver a fully interactive and visual experience". It just looks like a generic rectangular speaker with an awkwardly inserted 8-inch display in the middle.

Google's confirmed that Sony will be releasing a Smart Display, but we know literally nothing about it.
