Panasonic is bringing both Alexa and Assistant to its in-car infotainment systems

New research has come out that looks at the number of Americans that own a smart speaker along the lines of the Amazon Echo or Google Home devices.

On the show floor, it smoothly scrolled through demo applications popping up info in ways we're used to seeing on our phones or through Android Auto. Powered by Google Assistant, Lenovo's Smart Display, aims to be the best digital assistant out there - and it was one of Top Picks for CES 2018. LG chose to use Meridian Audio and add an 8-inch touchscreen display and a front-facing camera on this device.

So folks, that's what all about the new Smart Display from Lenovo powered by Google Assistant.

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.

They also say they're prioritising emergency patients and reviewing non-urgent activities, as well as opening up additional beds. England's chief nurse, Jane Cummings, said that people need to think about how they use the NHS in the face of a cash crisis.

Google had big plans to show off wares at the Consumers Electronics Show last week, but its grand unveiling got pre-empted by rain - and outshone by rival Amazon. Instead of being reliant exclusively on Echo speakers, Amazon wants as many outside devices to have built-in microphones to access Alexa as possible. Google's Assistant can be summoned on Android smartphones, and Siri lives on Apple's iPhones.

Lenovo's version of the smart display will come with an 8-inch screen for $200 or a 10.1-inch screen for $250.

You won't find a section dedicated to the Assistant apps in the Google Home app anymore. Even if it is said that it only listens to you when you start the conversation with "Hey Google", we just have some issues, just like we have issues with Alexa, and we still think that there somewhere could be a certain microphone that can deliver everything you say. When not in use, you can set it to be a digital picture frame as it displays your pictures from Google photos. If you don't know how to prepare something, you can get step by step directions read to you or a quick query will pull up a YouTube video showing you what to do.

Google's First Alert Onelink Safe & Sound embeds Google Assistant along with a full speaker into a ceiling mounted smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. It also revealed an unsolved problem for both companies: How complex should navigation be on a device that's more like an appliance than a computer? The newer updated Assistant will be able to access all of your third-party Google Assitant services and will be able to control your smart home devices just by receiving commands from your cars.
