Santa Delivered Many Smart Speakers In 2017

Santa Delivered Many Smart Speakers In 2017

Google's Assistant can be summoned on Android smartphones, and Siri lives on Apple's iPhones. Meet the new JBL Link View, an 8-inch touchscreen that has Google Assistant built-in to answer all your pressing questions and control all your household appliances. So, the consumers are either forced to figure out things themselves or scour the web for blog posts or reddit posts offering some information about the new service. Meanwhile, The One with the Google Assistant is expected to arrive in in the spring of 2019 for an MSRP $349).

The reveal of Google's smart screens is fresh, so all of the details aren't in yet for each of the independent manufacturers. Intelligent speakers, like Amazon's Echo and Google's Home, are "quickly becoming the core foundation of smart homes", he said. Smart Display's are Google's answer to Amazon's Echo Show, which also includes a tablet-like touchscreen. Whether that means it will have its own AI assistant and system inside remains to be seen. We call devices like the Google Home and the Amazon Echo smart speakers, but so far we've mostly tended to use them as smart microphones.

"It's still really day one for us in terms of what we can do with Alexa in the vehicle", said John Scumniotales, head of products for Alexa's automotive efforts, onstage at an event at CES. Meanwhile, The One Klipsch Heritage Wireless is a smaller, semi-portable tabletop model with a rechargeable battery, giving users more freedom on where to place the unit.

But the variety of devices packing Alexa certainly appears to be growing ever broader. But Park's approach serves as an apt warning for both consumer electronic companies and consumers: Be careful what you hype up and make sure there's some practical benefit.

But it's the rivalry between Amazon and Google that is particularly noticeable.

How technology is upending the world of retail is a theme of discussion at CES this year with panel discussions on topics such as virtual reality, data analytics, and how to use such technology to provide customers with personalized recommendations that would entice them to shop more. We're just a few days into the new year and continuing to make the Assistant more helpful and more available, no matter what device you're using.

The move aims to bring hands free control to mobile devices, allowing easier access to weather updates, music, calendar management, and more.
