Google Assistant Lands On LG 2018 ThinQ TVs

The Google Assistant now works with more than 5,000 smart devices across hundreds of brands. With Google Assistant on LG TVs, users need not invest in devices like Google Home or Google Home Mini. At the I/O 2018, more related information and details were shared with the public.

However, the brand has not revealed the exact launch date of the upcoming smart displays. The South Korean electronics major had announced its plan to enable Google Assistant on TVs at CES early this year, and is finally delivering the experience this month. They can be likened to the Alexa-powered Echo Show by Amazon. With the Google Assistant, you can ask it to help manage daily tasks, access information, control compatible smart home devices including lighting, appliances and much more. It's basically a Google Home device with a screen where you can quickly watch a YouTube TV or other video content from different sources.

Blankenship Concedes W. Virginia Primary - Morrisey Projected Winner
Blankenship tells a group of supporters that he still believes he was railroaded and mistreated by federal prosecutors. He told them that "I$3 f people like me can't win from red states, you'll be in the minority the rest of your life".


At today's Google I/O, the company confirmed that its first wave of Smart Displays will be going on sale this July. This ingenious tech allows the Google Assistant to make calls on your behalf, allowing, as demonstrated by Google, the assistant to call a restaurant, interact with the person on the other end, and then make a booking. These displays will be voice-controlled and work similar to a Google Home smart speaker, but also offer a visual display and touch screen. It connects with other smart home products and can understand most questions and queries. Users can relive their favorite moments by displaying memories from Google Photos.

Google already announced that it has tied up with JBL, Lenovo, LG and Sony to come with a touchscreen display. LG says that they are "collaborating with Google to develop a wide range of features, and are working to expand consumer accessibility in multiple languages".
