The LG ThinQ WK9 is the company's new Google Assistant smart display

Vuzix Making Alexa-Enabled Smart Glasses, to Debut at CES 2018 Vuzix and Amazon Partner To Bring Augmented Reality Glasses with Alexa Support

At this week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), digital assistants - voice-activated and AI-driven - were in the spotlight.

Whether the first 4K projector with Alexa or an entirely new family of smart display products housing Google Assistant, CES 2018 served as a showcase for voice assistants. Apple's own vocal assistant Siri is a staple feature on Macs, while Windows 10 PCs sport Microsoft's counterpart Cortana. An Amazon Echo Show is $230, so the ThinQ WK9 should be in the same category. Google Assistant announced third-party actions nearly a year back and there are lots of things you are missing. They will come in three different sizes, and companies will be able to install their own automated driving systems and vehicle management technology.

The Link View is a smart display speaker with of course Google Assistant embedded into the device. "It's been important that Alexa has opinions", Whitten said. This week, we saw the Jabra Elite Active 65t wireless earbuds, which have Alexa built-in. Google's long-term aim seems to be about making it possible for Assistant users to purchase things online, which remains a unique selling point for Amazon's Alexa. For example, in October, speaker manufacturer Sonos announced a smart device that controls music playback on Alexa. Whether that's TVs, smart displays, washing machines and even cars - for Alexa and Google Assistant to be so ubiquitous that you just use it without thinking, they have to follow you everywhere. Unfortunately, for those who may be interested in picking up a new audiophile-grade tabletop smart speaker, the wait for these is going to be a bit long.

Google claims that you can now perform more than a million actions with Google Assistant. Plus, we've worked closely with LG to integrate the Assistant into the new line of LG TVs in the coming months.

At this point, the hold up for any team trying to trade for Cole is the Pirates reportedly wanting three top prospects in a deal. Cole, who is under team control for the 2018 and 2019 seasons, is in his second year of arbitration eligibility.


Google is gradually expanding its voice assistant service to more and more devices and platforms.

Adding a digital assistant to a computer is nothing new and how often Alexa, and in what capacity, you'll call upon Alexa on such machines remains to be seen.

The more substantive matter here is that, once I get over the privacy concern of having Google know everything about my life, I'll want it to also know how the contents of my fridge are doing, and to convey that information to me.
