  • Google smart displays

Assistant will perform nearly identically to other Google smart home devices, but the screen has benefits for certain cases where a visual response is better than an audio one.

On LG's 2018 range of ThinQ AI-based OLED and SUPER UHD TVs, Google Assistant will be accessible directly from the TV's remote control without the need for additional hardware. LG OLED TVs and LG SUPER UHD TVs with ThinQ AI, and the Google Assistant will be available in the United States starting this month and will follow to other markets. LG AI-enabled TVs can instantly retrieve information or switch to a channel that offers the content requested by the viewer.

The Google Assistant expands on the LG TV's voice command capabilities by allowing LG TV owners to control TV operations, discover and access content from a variety of sources and incorporate the power of Google Search right in your TV.

Lenovo has announced that it brings the smart display for $199 for the 8-inch variant, while the 10-inch display will be available for $249.

President Trump suggests taking away journalists' credentials
On the campaign trail in 2016, Trump often banished reporters either to a far corner of the venue or kept them out altogether. These reporters tend to be more objective and are more interested in informing the public rather than shaping their opinion.

If you're more interested in simply getting more out of the assistant, then Google's Duplex technology should pique your interest.

The displays, which are manufactured by companies like Lenovo, JBL, LG and Sony, were announced at CES in January, but this marks the first confirmation of when they're set to release. Users can also ask it to help manage daily tasks, access information and control compatible smart home devices including lighting, and other connected appliances.

When the speakers launch later this year, not only will they be packing Google Assistant, as promised, but also apps for YouTube TV alongside other new features. With great partners like Google, we expect there to be many more exciting AI news to come from LG.
