CES 2018 | Alexa Is Becoming More Mobile

Sandra Phillips | 14 January, 2018, 04:05

"We're thrilled that Toyota and Lexus will bring Alexa to customers on the road", said John Scumniotales, Head of Product for Amazon Alexa Automotive.

It's just awesome how lots of people are coming to this event year after year and they're all excited to show stuff and find out stuff and they leave with much fun and facts learned from this event, even if a lot of those things are weird and majority show devices, it's actually great for everyone.

In addition, there have been a number of new start-up smart home automation companies embracing Google Assistant or Apple's HomeKit. In the future, it's plausible people could use Alexa for searches instead. Though announcements at a big event are not much considerable, yet this one by tech mammoth Google certainly drives our attention. LG is playing both sides, in fact. It makes it easier for the OE manufacturers of these devices by doing away with the need for writing new codes. The Smart Display does not come with 4G LTE cellular network and it also does not have its own web browser. Now that things have been upgraded to the full Google Assistant experience, you'll have a wider range of functions and tools available behind the wheel. But at least we know more about the LG WK9 Google Assistant touch screen speaker today than yesterday.

Google and Amazon are dominating the smart speaker market.

England to play Nigeria and Costa Rica ahead of 2018 World Cup
England will play at Wembley on Saturday June 2 against Nigeria, who will also be at the World Cup finals this summer. We will be able to test our readiness for the World Cup when we meet the Three Lions at Wembley", he added.

Dish customers will be able to use Google Assistant on Google Home, Android phones and iPhones to control their Dish equipment.

With that being said, according to sources familiar with Google's plans, the company will revamp its existing online store in February. JBL comes in second, with their Link View Smart Display. One noteworthy product was Hogar Controls' Milo, the world's first Z-Wave hub with Google Assistant built in. We have a feeling more OEMs will follow.
