Google traded more than 1 Home smart device each second ever since it began exporting in October a year ago, taking the numbers of sales to more than 6 Million, the firm has declared this week. One quarter of smart speaker owners report having a Google Assistant product such as Google Home or Google Home Mini. Furthermore, previous year in November Amazon announced a suite of voice-activated work tools to allow you to bring Alexa to the office. But at least we know more about the LG WK9 Google Assistant touch screen speaker today than yesterday. Recently, Google showcased "smart displays" featuring their AI.

Furthermore, the smart displays are equipped with all the Google services' applications. In the future, it's plausible people could use Alexa for searches instead. LG is playing both sides, in fact. The Smart Display is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 624 Chipset. On the other hand, the bigger variant with 10 Inch display carry a price tag of $249.99. Regarding the device specifications LG hasn't spoken a lot. While the market is dominated by Amazon (70 percent of the market) with its Alexa integrations it seems Google isn't going down without a fight. Google is looking to nab more of that real estate as well. This will enable the assistant to work with its newest infotainment platforms. 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. For more updates, stay tuned with us!
