Google Assistant smart displays launching in July w

The announcement was made as part of the Google I/O 2018 keynote, where it was revealed that the likes of the Lenovo Smart Display, LG ThinQ WK9 and JBL View will be able to buy in just a couple of month's time.

The TVs are also capable of understanding more complex orders, such as "Turn on classical music from YouTube". "LG's unique partnership with Google allows us to be the first TV brand to offer the Google Assistant on our own OS which is a huge benefit for customers who are fans of webOS". No hardwarre update is required and there is no additional fee for the software update. With Google Assistant on LG TVs, you can ask your TV questions in natural language, and it will answer you or take the appropriate actions.

LG's 2018 AI-enabled TVs will work with other Google Assistant devices in the US, UK, Canada and Australia with further expansion to be announced later this year. Consumers can probably expect, however, that these will go on sale through multiple retailers and likely through the Google Store.

Google's smart displays are best thought of as an addition to the current lineup of Google Assistant-equipped smart speakers, and a competitor to the Amazon Echo Show.

Google also announced that YouTube TV would be available for its smart displays as well, so if you're in the kitchen cooking and you don't really need the recipe on-screen, you can bring up your favorite show via YouTube TV instead so you don't miss out. Think Google Home - but with a screen to watch videos, too.
