Insteon and Google Assistant release new voice-activated home system

LG hasn't offered any details regarding pricing and availability of the device, but already listed the ThingQ WK9 on its website as "Coming Soon".

Google Assistant will be able to communicate directly with the connected TiVo, translating spoken phrases hands-free to the box as if they were spoken into a TiVo Vox remote. The Lenovo Smart Display comes in an 8 inch and 10 inch variant and looks pretty great too. It has "Tuned by Meridian Audio" speakers on both sides, while the front-facing camera is above it. With the addition of a display, though, such information is complimented with visual aids, showing your routes traffic conditions, or video news briefings from YouTube, for instance. It can also make sci-fi-style video calls, play music and function as a central hub for all your smart home kit. "We have been through a lot of work to achieve this with [our] high end speakers - it's.relatively easy in small devices [like Echo or Google Home] but more hard [for us]". "It's the only ecosystem that has, let's say building blocks we need which is the multiroom, the voice assistant, the apps but as other ecosystems mature we will bring more assistants on board".

We can also expect support for 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth and a USB port. As for LG, it has an advantage because the company knows the smart home game.
