"LG ThinQ WK9 combines Google Assistant, awesome speakers and an 8" screen

14 January 2018

Google's Assistant dominated the show's headlines through sheer brute force of product announced and an over the top ad campaign that found everything from the monorails to the signage at the Westgate emblazoned with the words "Hello Google".

Amid the competing partner announcements for Google Assistant and Alexa, there's word that Google is planning a big consumer push for its personal assistant to combat Amazon's stubbornly high market share in the smart speaker space.

LG Electronics' robot didn't quite meet the South Korean company's expectations and China's Baidu admits it still lags Google, but the two showed that the gap is closing between them and their us competitors at the annual CES trade show.

The next step for voice-activated personal assistants like Alexa is for the technology to become more infused with artificial intelligence and to understand context and remember previous conversations and interactions, he said.

The device is named by LG as WK9.

When you're writing content remember that voice queries are often longer and more specific than text input queries - most people can talk quicker than they can type and consumers are remarkably polite when talking to a voice assistant. A smart display has a tablet-sized screen that lets you see lists, pictures, and even video solutions to your queries.

Amazon didn't have any Fire TV news at CES, but Whitten said the company is continuing to work with TV makers on Fire TV Edition devices, while also incorporating some of the features first introduced on those devices into Fire TV streaming products.

Ctc Llc who had been investing in Netflix Inc for a number of months, seems to be less bullish one the $95.73B market cap company. Hess Corporation (NYSE:HES) touched its 1-Year High price of $60.13 on 01/17/17 and its 1-Year Low price of $37.25 on 08/30/17.

With Amazon it is easy - get your products onto Amazon and shoppers using Alexa Voice Search will be able to find them. The 8-inch model comes with a soft matte finish, while the 10-inch version can be customized with a bamboo finish. The Smart Display is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 624 Chipset. The ThinQ View has stereo speakers, like the JBL model above, and all the features that come with Google Assistant.

Tapping on any of the cards will show you what an Assistant app can do, how to invoke it and which devices it's available on. The company may add some more color variants to its lineup in the future.

Both devices use IPS displays, though the resolution differs significantly between the two. The 8 Inch variant of Lenovo's Smart Display is available at $199.99.

JBL Everest 710GA around-ear headphones come with a price tag of $249.95 (INR 16,000) which is the costliest among the lot. While the intention for attaching a screen to an Echo might have been for the objective of something else entirely, Google thinks they can do one better than Amazon did, with their own Smart Displays running Google Assistant.

So much so that according to a report from Bloomberg, Google could be considering revamping it online store where the focus is made on Google Assistant and the various devices that support it.

Amazon's push into the home with Alexa is an aggressive move to secure domestic endpoints, which it desperately needs in order to catch up with Apple and Google's presence on iOS and Android devices. When not in use, you can set it to be a digital picture frame as it displays your pictures from Google photos. Simply saying telling it "Good morning", will make the display light up and show personalised information for users to get ready for the day such as showing the weather, pending activities and appointments.
