Google at its annual developer conference announced the Amazon’s Echo Show competitor Google Assistant for smart screens. To put this simple, Assistant on the smart screen will show the weather, display your calendar, find directions on Google Maps, guide you through cooking, show pictures from Google Photos, play YouTube videos, and more.
Up until now, we knew these smart displays are coming sometime this summer, but now we have a more precise date.
First smart displays from LG, JBL and Lenovo are coming this July. The live demonstration of Lenovo’s smart display was also shown at the event, showing off YouTube TV integration and looking up recipes.
All the Google Assistant Smart Displays will run on the Android Things OS and will get (at least) three years of OTA updates from Google.
