Google reportedly plans to revamp its store with Assistant as the focus

TiVo Alexa and Google Assistant integration is on the way

While Alexa is yet to be offered in Australia, it is coming in the first quarter of this year.

When Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) launched its first smart speaker, the Echo, back in late 2014, its smart voice assistant platform was confined exclusively to its own devices. Customers can also use voice commands to turn the mirror's embedded lights on and off, and tap into the rest of Alexa's skills, like asking for a weather report. "Google has many more languages.so moving forward there are question marks about how long Amazon can sustain the growth". For example, there are Nest, LG, and Wemo sections that'll show you the actions you can take with their smart products.

Toyota suggests a number of ways users could use Alexa in the vehicle, such as for taking notes and setting reminders, activating apps, or for controlling other smart devices, such as the heating and cooling on your house. With a display, Google Assistant will be able to play a YouTube video, search for map directions, call a cab and track it, as well as pull up images through Google Photos.

It's nice to see that these features are spreading out across vehicles and becoming less manufacturer-specific - but it'll also make it more hard to figure out who's on the phone, who's talking to Alexa or Google, and who's just muttering to themselves.

According to PCMag, the integrations will work a little differently, depending on whether you're using Alexa or Assistant. The giant has also made the Google Assistant service available for the bigger Tablet devices which were not available till date. Microsoft's Cortana digital assistant is installed by default on Windows 10 computers.

Google, Lenovo, JBL have come up with a new set of devices named as "smart displays".

But as we've seen at CES, manufacturers think the market is hungry for more smart stuff. Did you expect this from Lenovo for this year? He is confident Alexa will enable user to achieve more when handling a touch screen.
